So we own a 4x4 shop here in town called All Knight Offroad and we sell lift kits for many companies, one of them is Calmini who does a lot of odd stuff like trackers, samurais, and even Isuzu. I went on there and saw that they sell 2" suspension lifts for 1984-1986 Isuzu troopers. The lift is shackles, new torsion bars, and shocks I think.. I used a trooper for parts on my LUV before and everything looked exactly the same underneath but I'm wondering if anyone knows if the torsion bars, shocks, and shackles are the same on a LUV and a 1984 Trooper. If they are then I can get a 2" suspension lift for a LUV

There was an Australian guy on here that swapped all kinds of stuff, although I haven't seen him for awhile.

Anyone else?

Did you try the search?

yeah i searched it, it sounds like a few people have done things similar, but not the exact thing i want to do. i wouldnt wanna buy the lift and have it not work. i had a trooper for parts and everything looked almost identical, but i dont wanna buy something hoping it's correct based on looks haha

It should be compatible but definitely take a look at the kit if you have one on hand at the shop
