 Suzuki Samurai Suspension Kits:

CALMINI

2-Inch Shackle Reverse Suspension System

This kit is the single best handling and ride quality improvement you can make to your Samurai. Allows front axle to trail down the road and over big obstacles - the way it should have been designed. Proper caster angles are maintained, which means an excellent handling vehicle on road, as well as providing a 2 inch lift that  improves ride quality. Contrary to myth, the kit does not reduce forward approach angle.  It actually improves with the lift kit. One piece laser formed tower is ultra strong. The kit comes with laser crafted 1-piece front tower assemblies, front heavy duty crossmember, bell shackles, boomerang shackles, bump stop extensions, polyurethane bushings and new hardware. The kit is fully bolt-on and requires no drilling cutting or welding to install.

CALMINI

5-Inch Basi SPOA Suspension System

One of the newest additions to the CALMINI suspension line for the Suzuki Samurai is our exclusive Bolt-On SPOA mount kit.  This kit takes the guesswork out of flipping your springs and eliminates all of the hassles involved with weld-on kits.   This kit can be installed with factory springs, although to reduce axle wrap we recommend new lifted springs.  This kit can be installed by anyone in their driveway with normal hand tools.  The complete kit comes complete with our laser crafted spring mount boxes with integrated shock mounts, bump stop extensions (not pictured), as well as complete Grade 8 hardware throughout for a trouble-free install.   These SPOA kits will require a modified steering system; either our Full Hi-Steer System, or modified drag link.

CALMINI

6.5-Inch SPOA Suspension System

A simple way of achieving maximum lift on a straight axle vehicle such as the Samurai has been to go ” Spring Over”. Easier said than done. Grinding old mounts off, fabricating new shock mounts and correct length bump stop extensions from scratch, and trying to weld it all back together correctly makes the conversion a mess for the home installer. Our designers have come up with the answer to this problem. Our new mounting system is a fully bolt-on system that requires no guess work or fabrication to complete at home with simple hand tools. It contains fully bolt-on mounts with built-in correct shock mounting positions, built-in bump stop travel limiters, and leaf spring perches that automatically position the axles correctly for proper steering and drive line angles. This makes the install foolproof. However, the “Spring Over” has other issues that must be addressed in order to maximize its performance. Axle wrap. The increased leverage that is applied to the leaf springs in this configuration tends to deform or “S” curve the stock spring very quickly. Our combo kit includes multi-leaf, military wrap design springs designed for this application. The complete system includes: Full spring mounting system, 4 correct length shocks, steel braided brake lines, 4 springs with full polyurethane bushings, rear boomerang shackles and drive line spacers front & rear. It’s sold complete and ready to assemble. We recommend this kit for the driver that is primarily off road using up to 33” tires. On-road ride quality is fair but not as good as our shackle reversed combinations. We also recommend the use of a Hi-Steer setup to correct steering issues associated with this size suspension system.
