Adjustable drop links. was created by mike83
Before anyone buys the expensive adjustable drop links get on eBay and search adjustable drop links. Scroll down till you see the small Subaru adjustable links. Same things half the money.

and for comparison some superpro branded ones:



I suspect there is some quality difference here, but even the cheap ones look better than the factory things.

I'm taking a Jeep outlook on the sway bar thing as my jimny is so much less knackering to drive with it on, doesnt want to change lanes, was laughable at pay and play tho won't leave it on next time..

Yup, that’s my link to the SuperPro ones...

As usual I fell for it and bought three pairs thinking people liked premium products, but no, you’d rather user cheaper Subaru ones, so I’m still stuck with two pairs, having fitted one pair to my own Jimny money-pit...

Ah well, I’d be better off selling Land Rover it Jeep parts where people pay premium prices fir premium products for their pride-and-joys...

:(

You are always going to have that with Jimny as they are seen by many as being a very cheap little toy that exists as a second or third car after the daily drive eurobox. Consequently the Jimny is never going to really get the time love and expenditure on it that the first car does. Means that if there's a cheap and nasty way of getting to a given level of modification it will be fully exploited. There are obviously exceptions to the above, people who do use their Jimny as a daily, have become emotionally involved with it or have become so consumed in serious off roading they have discovered, possibly the hard way, that cheap is not always best and such people are prepared to pay for the best quality or most appropriate alternative regardless of the cost. Such people are massively outnumbered though by the cheap and nasty brigade and from a retailer point of view that is the market to tap into.

What a load of old rubbish.

Cheap and nasty brigade. What a sweeping statement.

Mines a daily that does lanes and pay and play weekly.

These poxy drop links that have so offended you will only be used on road.

Riccy I appreciate you comments mate. Cheers boi. Yeah disconnected is a nice by
