    We finally finished our long travel struts. Simple strut replacement and get about 6.5 inches of travel and 2 inch lift. Currently we have them available for 1989-1994 Daihatsu. Check them out at http://japanese4x4minitrucks.com/index.php?act=itemdetails&item_id=84
    May 17 UPDATE!
    New Struts available with camber adjustment and fully rebuildable.

    Long Travel Struts

    We are still working out pricing-fairly costly but lots of machining done and high quality. We tried many different struts from NA vehicles and imports but found nothing that worked. Will post pricing soon.

    looks like you are using QA1 springs instead of the AFCO. Was that a price point design parameter? Or was there technical reasoning?

    Long travel struts

    Yes, we have a price now on our adjustable long travel struts-shaved a little off the initial price. This is the best we can do as the margin is very low on these. They give a 2 inch lift and are adjustable up to approx a 4 inch lift-6.5 inches of travel and 200 lb springs or your choice of heavier. Price is 1250 Can$. Reason for QA1 over AFCO only due to local supply-we can use either springs if customer wishes.
    Thanks,

    Struts

    Yeah, lol, wasn't the plan but had Japanese company build them-friend's shop who builds race cars and off road racing trucks-oh well, at least they should last forever. When truck wears out, buy another and swap the struts in.

    Emailed and checked out this site and was wondering if anyone had heard from them. The site says it's under construction. I was ready to through down some coin on these as well as the diff drop kit.

    Struts

    Yes we are still in business. Just been too busy to update new website. We haven't made the struts for awhile as didn't move many at the price they were. We may do another run on some in the spring and try to bring the cost down on them-I don't think we will build out of stainless either.

    Sweet well let me know. How about the diff drop kit, the one that had the 2inch receiver. Do you still have any of those around?

    So I'm guessing no news on the diff and tranny drop kits. Getting a welder next week maybe I'll give it a try.

    Suspension Kit

    Sorry, we've been too busy to make any kits, plus we are moving shops at the moment so probably nothing in the works till late spring.
