    mudnut's 'Old Trol' build thread.

    Finally, I've got most of the the parts for a 2" lift, thank you very much to a gentleman named Jonathon. The rear springs on an ARB quote I had were the same, but I have noticed that the front springs have a different number (2975 Spring to 50 kg) to the one quoted for mine (2976 spring to 51 110kg). BA's Patrol is a TB42 with a steel bar and winch. Mine is only an RB30 with an alloy bar with a low mount winch with steel cable and approximately a 10 kilo (10mm steel) cradle. Will I have to get front springs that suit or will I be able to fit BA's donated springs without any problems? Also, I have been allowed to use a hoist to fit the lift, will I need to compress the springs to fit, or will they just slip straight in? Once again, thanks, BA. I love this place!!

    The springs will just fall in, no spring compressor needed. Just disconnect shocks and sway bar links and you're good to go!

    I was also hoping you would say that The bloke that has the hoist has also got a 10 ton press, so I will hopefully get my radius arm bushes replaced. The cross member on my supercheap 10 ton press has bent like spagetti.

    With a hoist the job will take no time at all.... really easy and quick and so much safer.

    Remember mate plenty of pics !!!!

    Without your reminder, I would have forgot to take the camera too.

    I didn't get a lot of in-shop pictures, but this bloke's workshop is magnificent. A box of xxxx gold and the job was done. I still have to do the radius arm bushes, but hey presto: the Old Trol is now ready to keep up with the monster trucks in my club, hopefully It was interesting to note that the shocks were the same lengths as the stuffed ones I pulled out. The Old Trol sits on the road all right as the tyres have moved over a mere few millimetres, and the steering wheel angle is easy to get used to. I still have to extend the brake bias bracket too.
