hello there nice to see people love their isuzu as much as i love my trooper. had her 3 years. just going to replace the steering system and suspension. easy enough. i just cant find a pitman arm, idler arm, or rear coil leaf springs and struts. Ive checked basically everywhere. rock auto parts geek auto shack anything i can find online. finding everything else was easy. so if you know of anything i could use from a different isuzu or something... any information at all. just let me know. im really stuck right now.

thanks

Hello, a 93 should have coils, there is an extensive list on this forum, of compatible coils with part numbers. You do not have struts, you have shocks. They should be available most anywhere, includin RockAuto. KYB is a good brand for shocks.

Also, the pitman arm on a Trooper has no moving parts, so I don’t see a scenario in which it would need replacement.
