2003 Montero lift kit?
      #950307 - 12/17/06 11:46 PM

Other then the OME 2", coils and shocks, is there anything else to lift my 2003 Montero LTD. (no sport) What tire size can i expect to be able to fit? with those fender flares i doubt i can put much bigger.

Also can any guru out there tell me if i have solid lock or limited slip in the rear? I doubt i have anykind of lock in the front, maybe limited? My Montero is Canadien.

I had 285/75-16's on mine with the stock setup only had a little rubbing. I would think you could fit a little bigger, maybe.

Nice to have more Gen 3s on board. I've got 285s with no lift on stock wheels. As far as rear you don't have either one just plain open diff but good traction control system.

So the KYB's are dampening the heavier springs ok then? I just got a set of the Ironman springs myself and have been wondering what to do about sruts/shocks.

I would love to see pics of yours with the lift.

Thanks,

Just reread your post because I had a question, and realized that you asked about lockers and such. All the 2003 Fullsize Montero's have a the Mitsubish whammy cool traction control system, electronically controlled. I have found that it works VERY WELL. I know that the 2002 and older older GEN 3's were available with the oprional limited slip in the rear, here in the US at least.

My question, did you install the lift yourself or have someone else do it. I have been planing on doing it myself. The rear looks fairly simple, it's the front that seems like trouble. Any insite you or anyone else can offer would great!

Happy Holidays!

It really isnt as bad as you think to do it. I started mine and was done in a half day. If you have a spring compressor and simple mechanical knowledge then it isnt that bad at all. Just have to unbolt the fronts and then compress them with the spring compressor and re-install in reverse order. The rears are even easier than the fronts cause the springs arent around the shock...so just compress the control arm and unbolt the shock then let out the arm slowly and re-install the spring and voila...done. Only thing you need to be carefull with is the spring compressor cause I have seen springs fly faster than you can see and that wouldnt feel too good if one came loose and hit ya So just be carefull and take your time and its pretty simple...will save ya some dough

There is a step by step write up on the web somewhere that I used the first time when I did mine and its on a 2001 that was a good detailed explanation....cant find it right now though cause I am not at my comp......I think Alex might chime in if he has it though for ya...or someone else

I'm thinking about because i think stock shock sucks, but i'm concern about going HD, is it much stiff then stock to a point being unpleasant?

Center differential is precisely that. It's in the center of the car inside transfer case. It has nothing to do with front or rear axle differentials. The center differential is what allows you to use you 4WD on dry pavement. You lock it when going gets tough

Those fenders are exactly the same as us version. In fact what you drive is US version/spec Pajero named Montero.

Obviously there are differentiel in the axle but i didn't know there was one in the transfer case. Must truck i had the transfer case was totaly locked. At least thats how my BJ42 is, tho i have installed front and rear air lockers on my BJ.

Why? If to fit bigger tires than it's only going to create more problems. I never understood that folks knowledge that you need less backspacing and/or spacers to fit bigger tires (well there are certain cases when it's necessary but it's by far not a rule) I's say even 32" might rub with those spacers let along overall setup is going to be weaken.

I went on a ramp tonight to flex the suspension and the most problematic area is inside when you have the wheel completely turned, spacer wheel will help that, but will make the wheel go closer to the mud guard. But the mud guard is less problematic then the frame of the truck.

I'll mostlikely got with 265/75, same width just 1" bigger.

Good spacers aren't a issue IMHO and i personaly think that the wheels are at least 2-3" inside the rear fenders.

I didn't decide just on a quick call, i went on the ramp tried to flex the suspension and turn the wheel has must has i can't and checked everywhere for clearance.

Once i've got the tires and spacers on i'l post pictures.

i won't get any lift for now, the way the fenders are done lifting wouldn't help at all put bigger tires.

there is no problem inside really since at least few of us run 285s on stock wheels we would have known by know. I'd say with spacer it's very likely to rub on bumper. Maybe not so with 265 but definitely with 285s. Basically for every inch of less offset/backspacing you need 1/2 inch more space inside wheel well for tire to turn on each side of the wheel (front and aft).

Re: 2003 Montero lift kit? [Re: Alex Kogan]
      #953645 - 12/28/06 07:49 PM

Well first, I made a mistake about what size tire I currently have, they are 265/75-16, about 32". when I sold myself the Montero in 2003 we had installed 285/75-16 on 3 of them for the showroom, moved the 265's to Montero Sports, they just look better.

I found out after I bought it that the MPG sucks with 285's like 15mpg hwy, so when they started to make noise, I went to the 265/75's.

Also the 285's would rub on the front at full compression, like when going down into a roller coaster typ dip on the highway, at the bottom, it would rub the fender liner. The liner is actually quite flimsey, on a hot day it will droop and touch them sooner. I never had the 285's seriously rub when off-roading. The 265's work well with the 75 aspect ratio, way better than the 265/70's that were on my 2002. The 285's, believe it or not made the Montero handle better on twisty roads, and deffinetly in the dirt.

I am for sure going to be running 285 or larger in the future. BFG MT's, had good luck with them on my 1990 Might Max.

Discount Tire has a 16x8 alloy wheel with 25mm offset that will work on the montero, I am considering getting a set with MT's for when I go out, and keep the stockers with AT's for everyday use.



Do you think 315/75-16's (34.5") BFG MT's would be cool?

I have done many strut spring swaps on passenger cars, and did all the work on my old MM, but the factory manual say to remover the upper front control arm to access the front struts? Is that really neccesary?

This is GREAT! All these poeple with GEN3's actually working on them and maybe... taking them in the dirt?

BTW, I am putting on the Ironmans because the stock springs are WEAK. Lift is just a bonus after effect.

I got my Ironmans off of ebay, from a parts liquidator.

I had 285/75-16's on mine with the stock setup only had a little rubbing. I would think you could fit a little bigger, maybe.

I seem to have bigger fender flares then the US version or the picture of the white one in this thread, here is a pic from my canadien version. You still think 285/75 would fit?

They are the same as the US 2003.

I have one pic on my pc at home, not great one but you will see. I will post it when I get back.

2001-2006 NM/NP's all used the same springs...regardless of being a Limited or XLS.

OME springs will probably be the cheapest to obtain in the US since ARB distributes them.

Good find John. Those lift thingamajiggers look easy to make. I've got a buddy with a plasma table that could knock out a few of those pretty quick. Maybe I can get the measurements from my M-I-L's truck. Something to think about. Any interest from any of you GenIII'ers?

There's no way she'd go for it. She's still bugging me to replace the plastic spare tire cover on the back that got f'ed up in its 7th wreck.
