10mm Radius arm spacers
Nissan GQ GU Patrol
Kit consists of
· 2 x Spacer Washers and
· 2 x Thread Spacers.
One kit does two Radius Arms (one vehicle).
Designed to fit GQ and GU Patrols with coil front, the Radius Arm Spacer Kit is primarily used to ‘push’ the front diff forward (approx 10mm) to give better clearance for larger tyres so they don’t hit the front mud flaps and guards. Another common issue with the Patrols is for the standard radius arm washers to bend following excessive impacts, which can result in premature failure of the arm. Bigger tyres also generally means bigger shocks with longer travel.
This increase in travel can put additional stresses on the rear radius arm rubber bushings, causing them to distort and become dislodged. The High Tensile Radius Arm Spacers, being stronger than standard, resist bending and aid in radius arm longevity. The Radius Arm Spacers are also designed in such a way as to ‘cup’ the rubber bushing, preventing it from being dislodged, resulting in improved bushing longevity.
Radius Arm Spacers mount to the stud on the Rear of the Radius Arm where it bolts to the chassis.
It is recommended that you check the clearance from your diff to your Panhard rod before and after fitting the Radius Arm Spacers.
The Panhard Rod and Diff Pumpkin run very close on some Patrol’s depending upon other suspension work that has been done to the vehicle. Pushing the diff forward with the spacers can result in the Panhard rod making contact with the diff or the front of the radius arm, affecting the articulation of the Panhard rod,
This can place additional stress on the Panhard welds and brackets, leading to premature failure.
Full range of bushes are in stock if required.
