  1. ive fitted dozens of kilen springs. always been perfect.
  2. baseless 2 posters are best, we have 3 2-posters with bases and a 4 poster. nothing worse that doing fwd clutches on 4 poster. we have just picked up a baseless 4.2ton 2 poster like blanco has (5 meter tall). should make it a "joy" to do clutches on big vans with out it literally being back breaking. 4x4/rwd clutches/gearbox are a pita with base ramp as it always gets in the way on the transmission jack.
  3. apologies. got it wrong way round. indeed fronts are longer as they go up and sit on top of the inner wings where as the rears only go upto the brake flexi's. its common to fit front sensors to the rear if running big lift kits and /or lots of suspention flex.
  4. 2 differences. 1, abs sensor is about a foot longer on the rear, but these can be removed, just dont forget the little o-ring and sensor shims if fitted. 2, rear wheel bearings have a grove for the o-ring to seal to the axle. so rear wheel bearings fit both front and rear. fronts wont fit rear unless they have a groove and youll have to trasfer old o-ring to the new bearing.
  5. holy thread revival! in the 8 years thats passed. ive found: HID's are utterly herendous and a complete waste of time and money. you couldnt pay me to fit these. wipac clear lense with good branded +150% osram/philips/ring bulbs or 80/100W with uprated relayed wire loom is mehh, nothing great. cheap ebay LED 7" headlights with built in halo sidelight/indicator which i currently have are also pretty poor. but they do look cool! 🤣 52" LED light bar along the roof on the other hand, is just fantastic. trucklite LED's are going to be next i reckon.
  6. ive got one of these and its probably the best thing i ever got. like 330nm in the palm of your hand! worse part was paying nearly £50 for a protetive boot from USA! as for power setting, i only use max power and auto shut off which great as a fast/ 0 power nut runner ready to be properly torqued.
  7. would like to start making progress on the 110 project. been abandoned for 7/8 years now!
  8. same as richards/marsland/designa/sheilder? *you dont*
  9. bang for buck, get a dewault. naked there £150. full kit is £250 i use milwaukee. cant fault it really for the use and abuse it gets. 4-5 years and its had 2 cases and 2 switches. (second time was out of warrenty which cost me £160.. 🤬) original batteries which are still strong. again, full kit on ebay is £380 snap on are only fit for the bin.
  10. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/173252840724 thats the kit, top quality. its what i fitted 4 years ago (altho i fitted d1 box complete with pitman arm) as it caused me to have vague steering as seen here.
  11. quick, go buy a lottery ticket! i wish all landy jobs were this easy..
  12. ive have had/got spacers on all my cars/trucks and never had a issue. never come lose or have wheel bearing issues. tyres ranging from 225/40/18 that do 160mph+ often. 265/75/16 for 6 years and 35" simex on the old truck and 285 feds on the new one without issues. never had to check them and never used locktight.
  13. i had 265/75/16 STT (not the pro's) for wear there rather good but other wise there a bad all rounder as there a 50/50 tyre. too offroad based for good road handling and not aggresive enough for offroad so for now ive gone back to 100% road tyres on the 90. and have fedima sirocco on the D2.
  14. only time ive seen this is when pinion seal has failed and diff oil is flung up when rotating.
  15. there easy nowadays to get good bhp from. stock turbos are pushing 195bhp. all down to money. but as above, i want jose from td5inside when hes next in uk to map mine with popcorn. ther are multiply turbos etc for vavious power outputs. im struggling to remeber the company name. buy they have a td5 pushing 295bhp running a custom darkside developments tubular manifold kit with meth and bupane.
