Gen 2 Montero / Re: Gen 2 Quick Start Guide
« Last post by Shovel on September 30, 2020, 09:17:23 AM »
I started searching for a starquest/starion LSD and came across this https://www.tractionconcepts.com/1982-1989-Mitsubishi-Colt-Starion-LSD-kit-p/tcxmi7402.htm
Does anyone know if that LSD will work in the front diff of a montero?

-PT

Sorry I don't check the forum super often these days - if you're still curious yes I believe that will fit the front of a Montero but I also believe you'll be a little underwhelmed by that type of LSD;  they work by pushing against the spider gears to there's almost no friction area for them to work against.   Maybe of some help in ice where neither tire has much traction.. maybe.

Gen 2 Montero / Considering a Gen 2 again.
« Last post by B.N.Z.MTNS on September 17, 2020, 06:24:58 AM »
Well, itís been a couple years since Iíve been on here since I sold my 95 LS.   Family life happened and we needed cash for some other things, so the toys had to go. However, I am considering another capable rig again and still miss many aspects of the Gen 2 Montero.

I have purposely avoided looking for any because I remember there isnt a huge aftermarket or product support like there is for the other household names (Cherokee, 4Runner,, etc.)... but, then I also remember these are more comfortable and will out perform those other products in stock condition and have many factory do dadĎs not offered by competitors.

 So my big question for this Monteiro/Pajero Subculture isÖ Is there still a solid support group for these rigs? Or have most jumped ship to the newer rigs with more product support?

Iíve got my eyes on a 95 SR with fairly low miles (under 100,000).  It needs a few things like CV boots, unknown of timing has ever been done, plus some general elbow grease to get the thing cleaned up. Iím just wondering if there is still any kind of a following for these?  I donít care about popularity, but I still like to have reliable resources and knowledgeable people out there to consult with as things break or I consider more modifications.

Anyway, thoughts or opinions are welcomed.

Gen 2 Montero / Re: Gen 2 suspension questions
« Last post by IncorpoRatedX on August 20, 2020, 12:36:13 PM »
if you 'mostly' drive on rubble roads, dirt and gravel roads, washboards and field type environment and you -do not- carry large hitch or cargo loads; the 5100 will be the best possible ride for that type of use.

If you carry a lot of equipment, tools, gear or anything above 400lbs of cargo, the 4600 are more tuned for your use but wont be as soft and comfortable of a ride on the rubble and washboards. 4600's have been experiencing stock-out situations though, so check with your suppliers. Stateside we are back ordered on 4600's til October, and that's for orders placed today.

The deciding factor between the two shocks tends to be the traveling load, if loaded down the suspension will naturally cycle more with a softer shock.

Gen 2 Montero / Re: Gen 2 suspension questions
« Last post by mlp490 on August 18, 2020, 11:19:59 PM »
I realize this is an old thread but I'm hoping someone with some firsthand experience can offer some advice. I live in Costa Rica and purchased a 95 Gen2 3.5L not long ago. The suspension is very tired and needs replaced. Pretty much the only suspension kit I can find here is Old Man Emu. So, I think I will go with their springs. But, I would prefer to go with the Bilstein shocks, either the 4600 or 5100. I have read everything I can find on them but just need a bit more clarification.
Many of the roads here are rocky, washboard, rough dirt/gravel roads. And my goal is to be able to drive on them without having to go super slow (as I do now because of the worn suspension. i.e. lots of bounce, very rough). I am leaning towards the 5100's because everything says how soft they are on these types of roads. But I'm afraid they would be too soft and bounce over large bumps. The 4600's also get great reviews. I would lean towards these because I really don't like bounce. How much stiffer are they? Does anyone have experience with the ADD Combo Breaker kit? Or either of these combo's?

For Sale Automotive / 94 SR CV axles for sale
« Last post by TheDesertYeti on August 18, 2020, 03:42:05 PM »
I replaced my 94 SR CV axles when I got my Monty because there was a tear in the driver side outer boot. It had some play in it so I would suggest a CV rebuild. Still has that sought after thick axle though.  Passenger side is in fine condition. They sell as a pair.
Message me with offers, I will update this when it is sold, payment by paypal only.

General Discussion / Crash repair dimensions
« Last post by CharlieN on August 11, 2020, 06:01:04 AM »
Anyone have access to the crash repair books that have the dimensions of Gen 2 frame mounting points?

Gen 3 would be useful as well.
I have bought a book covering Gen 1 so I should have that info soon.
I intend to plot these in CAD so I can understand similarities to help plan future projects.
