    heavy duty springs

    hi guys last year I fitted some hd springs on the rear of my 90 to cope with a heavy roof tent and it all went well . after about six months they started to sag .then a friend of mine told me that front springs are stronger than rear springs .has anybody put front springs on the rear ?what was the height like ? I'm only asking because I don't want to change the rear springs every 12 months . I carnt bear to see a land rover with a soggy bottom

    headlight bulb upgrade options

    my lights will probably get dunked once or twice a year iv had led indicators before and they didn't like the water . I was thinking of xenon bulbs or something like that .I have a 200tdi defender with well maintained standard wiring iv found them around 55w/60w .ill have to look in to Osram nightbreakers

    chattering clutch plate

    it chatters normaly when you depress the clutch to change in to second .the people who rebuilt my gearbox said the clutch was a valio clutch plate and was much better than the one they were going to fit so they didn't replace it .400 miles later it started chattering and its now 5 years later and its time to get it sorted .
