FIT COILOVER ON RANGE ROVER CLASSIC

Hello

I want to fit coilover suspension (14" travel rear and 12" front) in my rrc, but i don't know the correct angle to work them; create new point of attack isn't problem and i know the right height. what are the angles longitudinal and toward to chassis?

Thanks all for support

That's pointless.

Fit long shocks with retained coils and your result will be much easier to achieve, especially considering you don't sound like any form of mechanic or engineer... 14" Bilstein 7100's would do nicely... Use similar to stock geometry, just make your distances between brackets suit and make sure it cycles without binding mounts.

It's all in the packaging...

unless you change the radius arms for a design that will handle 14" of travel, I wouldnt use anything more than 10" up front. maybe 12"

12" in the rear should be fine.

But why is the question? unless you are doing it just because.

The time of "that's dumb, that's not how rovers do it" died a fantastic death 4 years ago.

You want coil overs, do it. Do it.

I try to explain better.
I already have a raised suspension with shock absorbers Oram 12 travel, radius arm, etc.(www.equipe4.4.com) The reason for my question is that I would prefer the coilover system rather than the off spring disconnect

Gary-I think even you just got pwned!

Alright, now that you've teased me, MORE PICS of that truck.

I wanna see more of the rear winch.

As for your question, grab a tape, your calculator and start csiphering!

NICE truck!

There's an Alloy version that's very similar.

Clicky

You wouldn't pay the Inc VAT price as you're not in the EU.
