Article Date: 04/2012 - GQ SWB Build

Over the past 8 weeks we have been completing the initial build on our GQ SWB. What started off as a gumtree bargain - albeit very rough - has now overgone a complete rebuild. The suspension modifications are as follows:

  • 4 inch suspension lift utilising TJM XGS Gold shocks and King Springs
  • Roadsafe Adjustable Upper control arms Roadsafe +16mm Longer Lower control arms
  • Roadsafe Drop Boxes
  • Roadsafe Adjustable Panhard Rods
  • Roadsafe Adjustable Drag Link
  • TJM Gold Sterring Dampner
  • Extended Sway Bar Links
  • Upgraded Whiteline Sway Bars When increasing the suspension height as substantially as we have the following modifications have been completed to remove the inherent driveline vibrations
  • 10mm Gearbox Spacers
  • Longer Bolts
  • We have also fited a Cornay CVX-30 joint into the tailshaft On top of this the shorty has been kitted out the a dual battery cranking system in order to run the winch in future along with an auxiliary battery. Wrapping up the electrical system modifications is also a HID headlight conversion and 35w HID driving lights fitted. Body wise we have fitted a Milweld Comp Winch Bar and flexi flares to keep the 15x10 steel wheels covered. Work inside is ongoing and at this stage we have swapped the seats over for NIssan 200sx units and fitted a set of storage drawers - There is plenty more to come though.
