I really like your MPV, it's well modded and fully functional! Very Happy

Even though the last reply from mpv4mike was almost a year ago (make that 2 years) I would like to know what has been done also, i have only seen one mpv on here with lift and english was his second language so I wasnt able to get much info.

Every time i bring it up on forums i get a ton of reply's saying "you cant lift the mpv the front axles will bind if you lift it more than half inch". I lift mine all the way off the ground and at full turn my axles work fine so i know this isnt the absolute truth.

I would greatly appreciate any info

Nice. What did you use to lift your mpv? Currently have airlift bags that I got from 4 wheel online and I'm thinking of lifting my ride as well. My friend told me that that only route is to have a custom lift which will be expensive.

For the front i built strut spacers.
I had to remove an inch off the 3 front differential mounts and them grind a slot in the top strut mount to get rid of the positive camber.
You have to use OEM axles otherwise they just blow apart.
In the rear I used 1990 Nissan pathfinder springs with a 2 inch spacer on top.
I replaced the rear shocks with some I had left over from a jeep YJ build.
The wheels are also left over jeep parts.
Roof rack is off a ford escape no boundary edition.
Front brush guard is off a Toyota that I cut and welded to fit.
Overall I have less than a $1000 in this build Including the purchase price of mpv.
