currently thinking of changing rear springs due to spring sag & weight in back of wagooon plus weight of a car trailer..... have my eye on some secondhand FG one ton ute springs.

pro's & cons??


currently the wagooon has the 'standard' 65 ltr usable doughnut lpg tank, how ever i want to upgrade to the larger lpg tanks used on the lpg only wagooons [as per FAWD]. which also means a custom petrol tank [again as per FAWD]. not sure if currently fitted reece towbar will fit with bigger lpg tank?. currenly have a BF lpg wagooon as a parts car

yes i know the wagooon will have a 'stiffer' ride to to the springs.


hopefully not this weekend but the following weekend i will be fitting the springs. guy said they had done 100,000 odd k's [pretty sure it was less than 150] :mrgreen:

have trimmed both ute front spring hangers to 79.8 mm & factory BF wagooon [round not oval] measures at 78. something mm [lol forgot what it was]. overall there is approx 1.5 mm differance between wagooon/ute eyelets [ute larger].

now to remove old springs & fit 'new' springs. :mrgreen:

fitted one spring .... didn't need to use a clamp to do up u bolts. left diff there held up by the jack. removed old ... fitted new.

important part is to NOT damage the ABS wiring loom that travels along spring :roll:

spring eye was a snug fit & used a pinch bar to open up the body mounting bracket a smidgen. Will finish fitting other spring tomorrow :mrgreen: which is the harder...... due to exhaust :roll:

Image


Image



now i'm not sure how much differance there is but jack is under the diff taking full weight ... pic is the standard spring

Image


ute spring

Image


Image



and if anyone can tell what the part numbers mean........ i'd be grateful

so ... left side springs were easy to do & no hiccups wellll other than being the 1st & trouble inserting front spring hanger. righthand side was a 'bit' of a pain due to the exhaust. however wasn't too bad & was able to easily remove spring & fit ute spring. only problem was when i undid the diff u bolts & went to remove the lower piece of the saddle......

Image


Image


was no bolt there at all :shock:


anyway all is finished.

and ride height

car has been driven .... and drives very well :D [has had a smallish problem occasionally when revving past 3grand... seems to breakdown, but not all the time. think it's the coils maybe breaking down due to sitting for approx 1 year??]

did a bit of "Trial & Error" on the wagooon reverse sensor wiring :roll: so now have worked out how it works & how to wire it up so it cuts out when reversing with a trailer :mrgreen:


in case your wondering ...... the specific trailer wiring looms are not available.
