too... ah ha, but the car is now with my dad and he's having his fun with
my car. I'll get the numbers and the contact numbers for you to call and
ask though, at least you'll have something to refer to.
I really suggest that you change your absorbers. I've already changed them
twice in a space of 3 years. If you look properly, they don't need to leak
to be faulty. Bad ones will make your car judder and shake like nobody's
My wipers are also dying, so that's in the list. THe car is just out of the
workshop today. The absorbers were changed once over, and the bushings
replaced. Overhaul and clutch plate still pending though... ($$)
I'll post again tomorrow.

I just got out of the mechanic again last week, and the end result is a
fantastic ride! The car handles and drives wonderfully again, except for
the clutch. Sigh.
Following were done:
New leaf springs front and back.
New absorbers all four corners
New rubber bushings all around
Engine servicing and change timing belt.
Total spent RM2000 (plus a bit here and there)
Now, the next heavy activity is to change the clutch and replace the
gearbox and engine gasket. *WOO HOO!*
So far, the engine still reliable, and driving is still great.

I am new to this forum. I bought a Suzuki Jimny SJ413 Long chasis version
(more space) about a year ago. Initially, been using it as a 2nd car to
transport my mountain bike and odd stuff but now also using it for daily
use since pass my other car to my mom to use. It's a previous telekom car
and had no choice but to get it from a dealer since I kept missing the
auctions where it is the cheaper place to get from. Anyway, good thing is
I could check it out first and have not had any serious problems with it
so far. Been using it road only and haven't gone offroad yet.
Just spend $800 painting it up so now time to replace the worn out
suspensions. Right now it's extremely bumpy and rough. Went to a serious 4-
wheel drive shop and they quoted me $5K to change all four leaf springs,
shocks, and replace with PU bushings. Guess that's the price for quality
as parts all all Australian or US import. However, since I using so much
more on road first, I prefer something cheaper like the $2K you spent.
Can you tell me where you got your parts and where you got it done so I
can do the same?
Just like you guys, the reason I got it is because I feel in love with the
boxy and rugged shape of the Jimny and the functionality of it. I also
find the narrowness and asset for offroad usage and long body version
gives so much more room space.
