Does your Mitsubishi L300 make a strange noise? Need wheel alignment specs?

L300 shocks

Postby Growlerbearnz » Mon Jun 12, 2017 4:28 pm

They're incorrect. I have 919520 on the rear of my van and they are pin/eye. (913515 on the front, 2" spacer lift at the front, 2" RemoveTheSeats lift at the rear, just for reference.)

I bought mine from a little online store: https://www.amazon.com/Pro-Comp-919520-ES9000-Shock/dp/B004XBBW5E
Nothing says "poor workmanship" more than wrinkles in the duct tape.

Hehe - "little" :p

So regarding the previous poster's bump will 913515 + 919520 fit a stock height Delica?

I just replaced 4 shocks for my stock height L300 a few months ago. I got Pro comp 919520 for the rear and Monroe 550012 for the front (Monroe because, yes, I could not find the right mounting config in a procomp version, although one may exist). Both fit just fine, ride fine, and are fairly cheap. I got them on amazon. I regret not getting the polyurethane bushings tho because the rubber ones that come with the shock are already cracking. I'll have to replace the bushings soon.

What are you looking for when finding shocks that will work? Type of mount front/rear? minimum/maximum travel?

I have dobinson torsion bars, otherwise stock, so the fronts maybe 1-2" higher than stock depending on how wound i have the bars. may set them loose and use a balljoint spacer.

as for the rear sometime over the summer im having a shop near me that does desert truck leaf springs make me a custom set to match the height of the front.

so factoring in around 1-2" higher than stock what should i be looking for? I'm factoring a big budget for suspension, there doesnt seem to be much info for higher end shocks, more the mid range rancho shocks etc..
