The suspension in comparison is practically the same. The torsion bars and leaf springs have a different load rated capacity. The shocks are not really special but they are Bilstein edition.Real nice job. I have the exact same truck except with the 5 speed. I’m not restoring it, it is an all-original survivor. It is however getting paint cause it’s very tired although it’s not rusty. Are the suspension components on these the same as non-baja s trucks? I want to do a small suspension lift and larger tires but info is a bare minimum on these little gems. I call mine a baby square body.
For the lift, the rear leaf spring shackle can be replaced to make the bed higher. The torsion bar keys can be replaced if the stock keys don't raise the front enough for you.
