Raising Suspension for the Mongol Rally

Post by peterbatty » Wed Jan 30, 2019 3:59 pm

I will be taking part in the Mongol Rally this summer with a couple of mates. I have got myself a 1998 1.0l Polo to do the 13,000 mile journey in, there are a few things we need to before we set off, namely replacing and raising the suspension to cope with the rutted and potholed dirt roads.

What is the best way to go about this?

Also what are the chunkiest tyres I will be able to fit?

Any advice appreciated.

I would imagine you just want to pick up a normal set of OE suspension as this is high in itself

Of course, larger tyres will raise the height too but itll throw the speedo

13 inch rims with a biggish tyre is probably the way to go
