HEART

He cut the rear half off and re­placed it with a four-link rear from a 1998 Toy­ota Surf, to de­liver much bet­ter sus­pen­sion move­ment in the rear com­pared to the old leaf-sprung de­sign. Com­bine this ex­tra travel with a set of King Springs and Ran­cho RS9000X shocks, and you have some­thing ca­pa­ble of climb­ing boul­ders. Late-model four-pot Toy­ota Hilux calipers were bolted up the front and Nis­san Pa­trol items in­stalled down the back, which came at a cost, as Joel told NZPC. “When we in­stalled the Pa­trol brakes and hubs on the rear, all was well un­til we went to put the wheels on. The cen­tre bore on the wheels was now way too small, and we had to ma­chine the rear wheels to suit. So un­for­tu­nately the front wheels won’t bolt up down the back.” Orig­i­nally Joel had 37-inch muds on the 16- by eight-inch Mickey Thomp­son Clas­sics, but he couldn’t turn around on his street, they were swapped to the smaller 33-inch Mickey Thomp­son Ba­jas.
