so a short while ago i purchased an 85 suzuki samurai

after a few outings i have relized it likes to roll over due to poor suspension flex

im pretty new to 4x4 so i dont know much about how the supensions work
what can i do to help this out?

it has a Breeze spring over-with Calmini shackle reversal im told, and its on 33" tires if that helps

apparently thats a zuki thing.

put it on toy axles and it'll be a lot more stable.

Think ya just need to know the limits[31]

Wheelspacers or 2" backspace rims will give ya a wider track.

First mistake was you bought a zuki.

Start loading it up with Toy parts or just go out and get a Toy

I learnt to keep my 2 cents to myself a while ago about technical stuff. With the amount of people on here with more knowledge then I am going to forget all I can offer is stupid jokes or brand bashing.

Just doing my part.:D [31]

What shocks do you have, every samurai i know thats sprung over is soft as soft can be.

^^ has rancho rs 5000 shocks,
they seem pretty stiff to me, but hey im used to coilover sports car suspension so i dont know

other than the obvious new axles
what else is involved in the toyota axle swap?
how is it mounted? brakes? ect ect
is there any one alxle better than another?

i looked around but couldn't find too much, probably wasnt looking in the right places, but bear with me im new

Breeze industries sells a toy axle swap kit for samurais
the biggest problem with the swap is the passenger side front perch. IT gets in the way of the third member and U bolts cannot be used normally.
Breeze also has a toy axle to samurai steering box high steersetup.
brake lines are easy the extended suzuki ones thread into the toy ones.
You can use the suzuki brake booster/mastercylinder they work fine.
The front samurai driveshaft can still be used (depending on lift and angle)
For the rear Use a front driveshaft from an 85 or older toy pickup (do not use a n 86 or newer they are longer and dont have as much articulation.
