    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Ive wanted to do this myself with my 84 mk shorty can it be done with the mk chassis and diffs or could I possibly need to make gq diffs fit?

    Either that or does anyone know where to get a 3-4" lift kit for the leaf spring suspension in the mk?

    To be honest mate pushing a shorty to those heights requires a lot of $$$ and setup time as the rear drive shaft has a huge angle to change.
    Seen blokes fork out thousands chasing bad vibrations due to uni angles On the shaft with no avail.

    Sure it can be done. Easier than a coil setup, just get springs reset, or shackles, and a new drag link.. But you'll also need to drop the gearbox and adjust the diff angle.
