Gen 2 Montero / Gen 2 suspension questions
« on: August 21, 2018, 07:50:30 AM »
I'm looking at putting new suspension on my 96 SR and lifting it 1" while I'm at it. I was looking at the Rancho RS9000XL because I'd like the adjustability and claim to be for 0-1" lift, but then I discovered that the rears have less than 6 inches of travel and that seemed pretty low. Interestingly their cheaper, non-adjustable RS5000 for the Monteros have more travel than that (just less than 1 inch more). The OME has almost 9 inches of travel but says it's for a 1.5" lift.
So what's stock?
Does anyone know how much travel the bilstein 4600 have? I can't seem to find that one.

Should I even be overly concerned about the shock absorber travel or are there other more important specs to look at? I haven't bought suspension before, and certainly not for offroading.

I've heard some good stuff about the OME shocks and the bilsteins. I've also heard good things about the Ranchos and very little from the Montero crowd. The Bilstein and Rancho both have a lifetime warranty. The OME have a 3 year which has me thinking that the bilsteins or the Ranchos would be better in the long run, depending on what the warranty will cover.

As far as springs, I haven't decided between the ADD or OME ones yet. Are the progressive rate springs significantly better for a vehicle that will see a wide range of cargo (from just me and my wife to fully loaded with camping gear and other stuff to probably towing eventually)?

How about the torsion bars? Is there a major difference between the ADD ones and the OME ones?

My Montero will see lots of highways, mountain roads and off road trails. So we really want to keep it in that sweet spot of being pretty good at everything.

Mitsubishi Related / Front passenger window regulator
« on: June 08, 2018, 04:15:48 PM »
My front window regulator broke a couple weeks ago, I went down to autozone and bought a replacement and installed it. All went well until I tried it out and realized that the wires seemed to have been flipped on the new one because the window was now going opposite of the switch. So I took it back and am now installing the replacement. I decided to test this one before I got it put all the way together and same thing. The window goes up when the switch is pushed to go down. Has anyone else had this issue?

 I'm not very good with wiring so how hard would it be to rewire it myself? Or should I just take it back and try again?
