    Parabolic springs

    :LL: I'm sure this subject has been done to death, (not quite as my search on the topic found out). The rear of my SWB 'sags', and if I put what I'd consider a medium load she appears to 'bottom' out on minor bumps. I believe the springs need replacing and I think I want to go with parabolic...

    EAS Valve Block Issue

    Hi Everyone - thanks for the feedback on previous posts! I recently rebuilt my original eas valve block - new o rings, new diaphragm, coupled with a new compressor. I am not getting any air from the compressor to the tank, thus no pressure to air up the springs. I have checked for proper...

    Freelander rear suspension has become stiff

    Hello everyone. This is my first ever post so hopefully I've done this right. I have an unusual problem with my TD4 - the rear suspension has become stiffer and may be the reason that I'm getting the dreaded uneven tyre wear on the rear tyres with the associated tyre drone. Anyone else...

    Suspension Identification

    Hi Everyone - Happy Easter! :rabbit: This Easter, I've decided that it's time to change the rear shock absorbers on my land rover 110 (1986); the outer protection sleeve has been eaten by rust worm and when I pull on the shock, the top-bush seems non existent (I think that's the source of one...

    Suspension options

    I think the rear dampers are weak on my 2003 5dr Freelander as under mildly hard cornering I can feel the nsr dive a bit. What dampers do people recommend? I've always gone for gas dampers on previous cars, but wasn't sure whether they'd be a bit hard for off road use?

    Freelander rear swinging arms and the MOT

    Hi my 2003 freelander has failed the mot on the rear swinging arm bushes which i had replaced about 18 months ago. is this a common fault and where the best place to source new bushes/arms and is there a more solid version? as 18 months of normal driving is'nt good enough.

    Side slope driving

    How much of an angle can the Disco 2 take on a side slope without risk of overturning? I am sure the car will lean more than my nerves will allow, but it would be nice to have some idea !

    Bushes: Rubber or Poly?

    I am revamping a 1995 110 in hot, tropical Ghana and one of the (many) pieces I have to change are suspension bushes. I understand the Poly bushes last longer but provide a stiffer ride than rubber. My local (Ghanaian) mechanic is in favor of poly, and my source (Famous Four) provides...
