Sportage extended front forks

Postby 4runnernomore » Fri Jun 26, 2015 10:46 pm

G'Day every one ,

Been a while since I posted last.

Recieved some good news that I wanted to share with other Sporty owners out there.

Since watching Ads build his rig I have continued with mine and found a number of items that were not readily available a few years ago.

We can now source 5.38 Ring and Pinion, adjustable pan hard rod, front diff locks from two different manufacturers and a rear difflock.

I received an update email from Michael at Pl Spares from Korea the other day showing latest pricing for lockers and R&P's . Curiously he had provided a price for 50mm extended forks.

I sent a return email querying if the forks were available again.

They have manufactured 100 sets. Quoted price was $U156.22
Get them whilst you can. I already have a set fitted to my Sporty.
Send an email to Michael from Pl spare parts in Korea . picorp@hanmail.net

Here is the original email I recieved the other day.

DEAR MR. CHRIS,

PLEASE REFER TO THE BELOW 3 ITEMS FOR THE SPORTAGE BY NEW QUOTATION.
1. 50mm front long fork set : U$156.22

2. 5.38 set(front + rear) : U$412.00
3. 5.38 set(front only) : U$206.00
4. 5.38 set(rear only) : U$206.00

5. Locker (front, rear, 26 spline, 28 spline) : U$430.00 / 1 UNIT.

Usual no affiliation etc etc, just a happy Sporty owner wanting to spread the news.

Looking good Chris, nice to see you are still working on it

Extended front forks? - sounds more like something I would read on a custom motorcycle site :smile: - assume it is some part of front suspension?

Thanks Nig,

Correct,

The Sportage has a unique front suspension setup comprising of a seperate fork and strut. The strut attaches to the fork which then attaches to the lower suspension arm.

Cheers,Chris
