Height of front of syncro poll

Hello group,please take the time to measure the distance between centre hub and wheel arch on you vehicle and do the poll.
I know that there is some variants that could effect your measurement,but just measure it as it sits at time of measurement,on a flat surface with no-one sitting in the front.
Thankyou
BenC

Have voted Ben. Although mine is high it has been done with 2wd front springs and spacers at the back. The front is just too soft and even when driving through some  intersections in town I have to slow to a walk. Would be terrible on the Plomer Rd. Am going to put syncro springs back in. I have some at Marks waiting until I can collect. As I also have the 15” mefro wheels I am not too fussed about dropping the height 20 mm.

Do you recall that photo I posted of mine in front of Harts?

Cheers, Peter from Port

Peter,I did have a good look at yours whilst at Harts.
Whilst up in the drivers seat it felt so much more higher than mine.
I wouldnt use the 2wd spring option for the same reason that you do not like them,although,they may not be so soft in a lighter bus like mine.
I really liked the extra height that the 2wd springs give you.

Ben,

I just checked mine and the front is 505mm and the rear is 515mm with everything in bar the camping gear, ie including the fridge, cupboard, rear tailgate tent, but not including:

All the wife and kids clothes, my back pack and the main tent annexe, tarp, chairs, table, camp kitchen, tele, surfboards, sleeping bags, pillows, Christmas presents, a 110L fridge full of food and drink, towels, blankets(in case it snows mid summer on the NSW Mid North Coast, a large bag of shoes, a large bag of toys, Sienna's cab bunk etc etc plus me and my family. Hence the syncro is missing a fair whack of weight.

I haven't measured the clearance after fully loading as we have to take off as soon as it is fully loaded.

It would be interesting to see the difference.

Cheers,

Skot

Peter. That extra height really helped Ben test driving your van on the beach at christmas. Bill
Bill,

You forgot to mention how well it jumped the dunes with a that softer front suspension.

I'm sure you will get all the sand out one day Peter.

Now that explains why I keep finding shells every time I look in the engine bay and under the seats!!! Hope you all had fun.

Cheers, Peter

Ben,

Have measured it but can’t open the poll  (me ,not up to the task) front  505mm rear 507mm empty DOKA . Had Seikel springs (from B.Jaeger) fitted, found them way too stiff for such ‘light’ vehicle ,sold them and re-fitted the originals after Mueller’s & M.  had them stretched for me. That was some 6 yrs back and so far they have not settled anything noticeable.
