Question:

The little Suzuki samurai 4x4 ,how good are they and what kind of parts are available,as for gears and axles?

can you buy lower gears for the front and rear axle‘s like a low 586 set and what company sells the largest amount of suzuki off road parts in the U.S. thanks

Answer:

I've had a Sami for 8 years and it has went from stock to pretty dang amazing! I didn't do the lower gears in the axle thing- I just put a lower geared transfer case in. I got mine from Trail Tough in Medford, Oregon. It was cheaper and easier and very effective. As far as vendors there are a few- Petroworks,Trail Tough,Calmini, Roadless gear and Rocky Road Outfitters. Theres more but that will get you started. Now just about any part you could imagine is available so look around and just have fun! I've taken my truck thru some pretty hairy spots and came out ok so, properly driven, they are very capable . Good luck and enjoy your Samurai!

I have a Sammi that I bought for $450.000 not running and except for the tires, Oil, filter, Radiator hoses and Themostat I have been able to find I any parts I need on line especially on OKorder. Just installed a Remanfactured Head which bought off of OKorder- price better than anything I could find locally.I really enjoy driving mine especially withg the Mesh 'bikini top during the summer. I may get passed a lot on the Interstate ( top speed about 70 unless modified) but I don't care- It is a fun car.

The lowest you can get for a gear ratio is 5.38. They don't make the 5.52 anymore. The best thing to do is rob a 5 speed Tracker for it's 5.12. The auto's had 4.33 I think. But I stole the 5.12s and did a heavy duty axle upgrade on the front. Is not very difficult. Does not require and gear backlashing.
