G'day from NT Australia.
Signed up a little while ago but forgot to put up my intro.
I have a 97 Sportage for a number of years (since 07) and have been very slowly improving it along with tons of research.
managed to access a number of previously perceived lost or non existent modification options to the Sporty community through sheer bloody mindset and patience.
My 97 Sporty currently runs 4 inchs of lift comprising of 50mm extended front forks, 40mm Dobinson Springs, KYB front struts, 35mm Jeep TJ Dobinson Springs, RAV 4 OME shocks from ARB,
Other ad dons include: snorkel, K&N Air filter, power chip fitted with "98" tune,front Kaiser diff lock, 5.38 R&P's, 1&3/8 body lift, Tru Speed device (to correct speedo) sports steering wheel.
Currently working on a fix with a suspension specialist to rectify the AArm issue when we lift our beasties. I have a thread in the Sportage forum.
Next mod will be extractors from wildcat along with ceramic coating and a 21/4-2 inch free flow exhaust and hi flow cat.
My Sporty has been relegated to my son for his daily driver now he has his P license.
Look forward to providing updates to the Sporty community.
