Hi Allan, I live on a cattle property in North Western Queensland and recently purchased a 1999 Suzuki 3-door Grand Vitara. I went with Suzuki because I should be able to repair the simple motor myself in an area where the nearest mechanic is 200km away. The roads are upgraded for most of the year, heavily rutted and corrugated.

I need to upgrade the suspension to handle the conditions and your advice would be much appreciated. I’m interested in the Calmini 2.5in suspension system. Are you familiar with the product and would you recommend it? It seems like a complete kit, but I’m concerned about whether or not I’ll need to modify the gear lever and/or gear lever boots. Will there also be enough flex in the drivetrain with the 2.5in lift?

I think in your area, the suspension system you’re looking at would be ideal. I’d talk to them about the gear lever and boot and the flex in the drivetrain, but I’m sure they would have covered that in the design of the kit. But yes, I believe that’s a good suspension system, I haven’t had direct contact with it personally, but if it’s available in your area, then I reckon it’s probably a smart way to go.
