Before the 200 was registered, Rambler spec’ed up the suspension with a full 4-inch lift second-stage manufacturing set-up from Superior Engineering. The kit is hands down one of the most extensive on the market and painstakingly upgrades multiple components to help increase the 200’s maximum gross vehicle mass.
Up front, the kit uses 4-inch taller coil springs on optional 2.5-inch body Superior Engineering remote reservoir struts. They’re matched with billet upper control arms to dial caster and camber back in after the lift. The front diff has also been lowered 50mm as part of the kit to help flatten the CV joint angles.
Up the back, a matching kit has been fitted with a few extra additions: 4-inch taller Superior coils sit on the live axle, with 2.5-inch remote res shocks reining them in. Superior upper and lower control arms dial the pinion angle back in, with a healthy strength upgrade in the process. A Superior Panhard rod recentres the rear diff, while longer brake lines and a sway bar relocation let the Cruiser make the most of its new travel.
