And you get Simex tires? Lucky!

Looking good! The 8.8 Ford axle is so common in Cali, lots of unused D35s.
Gen 1 Montero / Mitsubishi Montero SAS 2 door

Hello guys!!

Sharing the bit of advance on my project, it started as a 2 door montero I got for cheap, is running the 2.6 gas engine and 5 speed manual, superb engine.
Got wheel spacers and 33s with no lift amazing cars! but well suspension died and there was something needed to be done.... either rebuild or something cool....

Way too deep haha

So here we go!!

Front suspension is a 3 link, lower links on bushing + heims, upper heims for adjustability
Rear suspension, front Discovery II RA super long and will be strong enough
Heim joint steering with a modified pitman arm and a DIY Hi steer for the dana (similar to what is done for the jeep SOA)
Dana 30 and 35 for ease of parts (Ford 8.8 is way too expensive here and kind of rare) got a non C-clip dana 35 for peace of mind
Rubicon Express coils for the front stock cherokee rear
ProComp ES9000 shocks (30 inch)
Reinforced chassis with 1/4 inch plate on vital parts

Will be running 4.88 gears and 35s

Stuff I need to get, Dana 30 posi lock, gearing, tires, lockers and lot more stuff but we are never over right??  ;D

So Pura Vida guys!!

Hey guys I am selling my 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Endeavor for $4500. I could take off a decent amount if someone from here wants it! It has 208k and I just did a full service on it. I did the timing belt, tensioner, pulleys and water pump all OEM Aisin parts. Have receipts. I also did the front cam seals, valve cover gaskets, spark plugs and alternator. It runs and drives great and very smooth. The 2000s didnt come with a rear locker, but I know a place that I could get the locking rear axle out of a 99 if you desire. I have it on craigslist here if you want pictures. Located in the PNW about an hour north of portland. .
Thanks Guys!

Fast Eddy has gone to the skies.
Internal division is what happened. The Wire remains.

New OEM control arm assemblies are $150 per side and they come with a new balljoint, polyurethane UCA rebuild kit is $80 and OEM upper balljoints are $50 each roughly or you can buy new Chinese arm assemblies W/balljoints for $85 shipped.
 I recommend poly if you have big tires, it's a job but not terrible especially if you buy donor used arms (adds to the cost). If you want it awesome and easy go OEM, if you cheap out on Chinese arms pay attention to the shaft nuts as they are known to back off and spit out the bushing.

How long's it been since you bought OEM control arms? Finding them discontinued everywhere.

I scored front and rear 5.29's from a Montero guy locally that had them since 2003, that he imported from Australia and never installed, I have a 2000 Montero that I installed a 99 Montero rear differential into it. After lots of searching and Mitsubishi manual reading, I don't know if the pinion with 25 splines will work in my 2000/1999 front and rear differentials. Any help would be appreciated. I decided that they are the proverbial "Pig in a poke", but for $400 I jumped on them ASAP. I counted the ring gears 37 teeth and the pinion's 7 teeth and yep, they're 5.285 gears (I just took the sellers word for it, then confirmed after the purchase!). Both pinions have 25 splines.

What do I need to know, to make these work. I'm looking to run 17x8 and 35" wheels in future, that's why i grabbed them.

Thanks, Machobishi
