    yeah Isuzu stuff isnt that bad to work whith though. ON my luv i pulled the sway bars and added an upped ball-joint spacer and it netted me 8" of travel. I would do the same for the trooper but it has too much body roll whith the sway bar /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I had a 88 trooper. It did well for what it was. I have a guy that ran with out club that had a trooper on 35's and it has done stuff that a few other trucks (mine included) couldn't. It's been all over Tellico and draged out quite a few folks that gave it crap about being IFS. It's achilies heel was tierods. It loved snaping and bending them.

    my toyota was pretty sorry with the swaybar, so i ditched it, and pulled the rear rollbar out, and actually LOWERED the torsion bars some because they were set too high..it flexed pretty well for ifs and only got me stuck once when i hit some ruts and found out i had a broken hub ($180 a side)...it crawled pretty good too for open/open!
