    it does! basicly, i found a fabricators in tavistock that can modify my existing bike rack ( adding metal extensions but at the same ime, sacrificing the original design to fit the bike ) and theyre hopefully going to sort it out next week ! panic over! no tow hitches and money saved. win win situation me thinks!

    Coilovers are now Fitted

    Took me all bloody afternoon and a crushed finger but it's worth it. The ride height is all to pot at the moment as I set the fronts to the same as they were before but got my measurements wrong on the rear and manage to drop it a few mm

    Mandatory old v new shot



    Fitted (poor photo)



    Front ride height



    Rear ride height




    Engine bay




    I've set them to full soft all around until they settle in. Has anyone got any suggestions as to what settings I should use when bedded in eg. 6 clicks front 8 clicks rear etc

    i've always been a bit sceptical with alignment - if the setup is miles out then you notice a big difference but when i've changed suspension on occasion in the past i've found it very hard to notice any difference at all, if anything it always feels better???? it sometimes seems like 100 quid for peace of mind but not having it done is frowned upon lol......

    Ha ha I guess it'll help stop tyre wear if nothing else. Will definitely need it after the full alignment set is fitted tho.

    Good news is I still don't have any rubbing on the back even with it being lower

    They are pretty stiff compared to standard even with them on the softest settings all around. I'm really liking them so far

    Will do mate. It's not really fair of me to judge until they are set up correctly and bedded in. First signs are good tho

    nice 1 chris

    you will need alignment done once you get your ride height how you want it cause just cause the top mount camber bolts are in the same place either side there will still be a big difference , also when set up properly the grip difference is unreal

    Still got alignment arms to fit as well. Will have to wait until after payday as the landrover is getting it's gearbox rebuilt this month

    It'll only do about 50 miles in the meantime tho so all is good
