Default G1 Custom lift

I took my g1 body off and me and my friends made a homeade 5 inch suspension lift on a rainy cold afternoon. Keeping it real low budget and it is working nice. Now the lift is done im going to paint it and put a bigger piston in along with shaving the head! thanks for all your help

we made drop brackets for each piece of the suspension and welded them in place they were actually like 6inches but leaving space for the bolts made the lift more like 5 inches. the hardest part was the steering knuckel that comes off the shaft. we cut it in half and extended it and we had to change the angle to make the tires not off camber a few times of cutting and welding and it worked great

search on banshee pipe on g1. one of the best builds of a G1 was on buggies unlimited.
do pre mix, bike carb , banshee pipe and you should be able to double the horsepower

hey paul it wasnt too bad makn the lift. the rear was real easy i'd say it took about an hour maybe two. The front took about three i wanted to make sure that all the drops i made were perfect so it didnt sit lower on one side.

great.I would much rather spend 5 hours making my own lift than spending 300.00 to buy one.
thanks paul
