Screen rubber sorted, problem 2 rear anti roll bar


Recommended Posts

Me again.

Whole new problem to sort. A while back I had a replacement chassis fitted, I was told it had come from a 2012. ( not so sure now)  Apart from none of the exhaust mounting points lining up I find that I don't have any mounting points on the chassis to mount an anti roll bar, I have the front ones and all 4 on the axels but nothing on the rear of the chassis so no reference point to weld on new ones, any info on the right position or right method to determine where they should be would be a great help...( the good side of this damn lock down is I got lots for time sort all these problems )  Just as a point of interest it look like its had any bars fitted for a long time.

IIRC Tom, chassis of that age have rear bolt on hangers. You'll need to do some research but I think it's the correct tree to bark up.

2012 chassis fitted to an older Land Rover is a whole new can of worms 😉

Hello Mo,

I ve been trying to find a few pictures but all ive come up with are 110s with what appears to be a tank guard , I have nothing like that but just had a close look it appears that some kind of fixture has been cut off, Just wondering if I could fabricate my own the only prob sizes, as I guess its important to have the bar mounted so it doesn't  affect the axel travel,,,, Just wondering if I could make them similar to the front mounts.

Hi Bowie,

I agree mate, starting to think the firm that fitted it for me weren't as good id been told. Having said that it was almost a basket case when I bought it and id suspect the anti roll bars weren't there in the first place. Either way I want to fit them.... as for being legal it passed its mot with no probs ...

MOT is not a certificate of legality. 

Use of a second hand chassis is the issue, the ID of a vehicle goes with the chassis. You are driving around in a '2012' defender with 200TDI or whatever bodywork attached.

Essentially your numberplate and chassis number now don't match.

well all have is the paper work from when it was changed . I asked what to do about the chassis numbers and was told " nothing just keep all the paper work".

All the work was carried out by 4x4 fabrications . Sandford, Whitchurch

Cheers Mo.

Must admit my heads spinning with all this. I was looking at the replacements on the Island 4x4 site, they look a straight forward weld on job, im wondering if I can mount the bar to the axel then use that to give me a location to weld them on.

Ive emailed 4x4fab for some answers about my chassis, see what they come back with, then maybe get in touch with DVLA and see if the stories match.... Either way I had the work done in good faith lets hope it follows through.
