I have a 92 complete tracker as a doner.. also, i am doing a SOA lift... so many manufacturers, and so confusing, there is NO kit im impressed with on the market... so i'll proberally piece it together with numerous differant products, also looking for any suggestions, whats worked for you, what hasnt, products to stay away from, etc.. .looking forward to your responses... thanks, Jay

Second on with the information.

The 1.6 swap not to familiar with. Havn't done the kit yet but plan on doing it in the future. Somebody will come through with more knowledge on it.

I have heard that petroworks kit is pretty good.
1.6 conversion

Then you have trail tough.
1.6 complete install
There is many more companys that make this kit.

For the sidekick power steering
I went with calmini. They make a kit that is all bolt on.
http://www.puresuzuki.com/power_steering2.htm


THere is also trail tough but there kit you have to drill and add braces.
http://www.trailtough.com/index.php?...mart&Itemid=53

If you browse lowrange offroad, they have alot of all the brands out there on one website.
http://www.lowrangeoffroad.com/

WHen i first did my spoa i went with sky manufacturing spoa pads theres is really easy to setup> You set them on top of the axle they sit right in the old perches. That way you don't have any measuring for proper castor angle.
http://www.sky-manufacturing.com/new...uct.php?id=109.

I just went over some things i have found on the internet and have put on my samurai. There is so many kits and parts. I would just piece the kits together to get the exact setup you need.

stafford01.... thanks for the reply....I have been ding a lot of research, and a lot of what your saying i agree with... I was leaning toward the calmini bolt on P/S setup... the petroworks 1.6 kit, and the sky spring pads.... just want to get some more opinions, or good/bad issues with these components, I have been on low range, and done a ton of research, but "everyones" stuff is the best... My plans so far: Calmini P/S set-up, the Sky spring pads, weld on lower shock mounts, ext. brake lines, driveline spacers, front upper shock hoops, and rear upper adjustable shock mount, The Sky OTT steering set-up, a 2" shackle,(1" lift) (which set????), a 6.1 t-case kit(????) 32 or 33" tire(????).... Any other suggestions???? Siderails?, front/rear bumpers? etc..

I would check out www.zuksoffroad.com
He has the 6.5 gears. Also has the best transfer case cradle (Snatch) on the market.You would need a transfer case mount with those gears or you will be breaking alot of parts i.e transfer case, mounts.

I'm getting ready to order the myside from him this week.

Trail tough has bonz shackles which are pretty good. But for the money i would just make my own set.
Have you checked out http://www.shrockworks.com/Suzuki. they have a really nice set of rockguards (Siderails)

Welcome to ZK


And go with Lowrange when you get ready to buy that crapmini PS set up. Do a search here on cal mini and draw your on conclusion on the deal. Seems like LR stocks the parts so you will stand a real good chance of having a good transaction.

Sounds like your on the right track!!!

Side note; the Petroworks 1.6 kit lowers the motor, it helps to have a spring over first?.....Good luck..
