do i need uprated springs?


Recommended Posts

Hi

Having finally aquired an H14 PTO driven winch and all the bits, and having weighed the winch in it's bumper (it came in at 110kg!), I am thinking I might need uprated coils on the front? If so, what should I use? I see paddocks etc have a heavy duty 110 set (in the defender parts catalogue) - will these suffice, or do I need to look at something else to stop my front end drooping!?

It's going on a 1996 110 300tdi by the way!

Many thanks

James

Try OME springs, they do a front pair that will take a constant 110kg load & still let you go to max gross vehicle weight. got mine from Surrey off road @ Dunsfold

I have a set of new 110 HD front springs that I bought for mine, but never fitted then sold the LR. I bought them because I had a hydraulic 525 on the front. Your for £20 + P&P? :ph34r:

Surely the springs arent that much new? - the red/white stripe rangerover heavy duty springs I bought for the 90 were 8pounds each :rolleyes:

remember that most aftermarket springs are a heavier rate than stock, yet usually the same free height or shorter (depending on rate)

Better to work out how much the front end sags with the winch/bar and get some springs the same rate but longer than stock. This keeps your ride and off road articulation.
