ive decided on OME suspension on my 300tdi defender , so now al i need to know is where is the best cheapest place to buy ?

and which springs do i need ?

going to settle on the 2" lift as 4" is just a bit too much , the truck going to be used for winch comps , green laning and playdays , will have warn 8274 front and rear , and usauall recover gear waffles etc , so which springs are best suited

is it also worh fitting -2" turrets and -2" rear shock mounts to extend its travall ?

cheers guys

From King Springs :lol: Just buy some Britpart springs and paint them black, then spend the money on something else..

For a 2" lift you'll want 751's on the front and 764's on the rear

Part No. Axle Rate (lbs./In.) Length (DS) Length (PS)

751 230 15.3" 14.9"

764 220 16.9" 16.5"

Cheers

Do not mess about,

If you thinking of drop out kits as well...

Buy 11' travel ome shocks (We supply) Gwyn Lweis Drop out kit and cones

With

OME springs

Sorry am not not doing the hard sell, just fed up of people getting the wrong kit first time round.

If you do want our advice give Jennie a call Monday 01732 463600

Best system on the market by a VEEEEEEEEERY long way :D

I am running Gwyn lewis kit on my 90 and have given it some severe hammer/Testing and I recon you wont beat it for functionality.

It dosent look as bling as some but it works far better IMHO.

Give him a ring or look on his web site

Gwyn Lewis's website

Jim (d90sv) and rob , any chance of a bit more info on gwyns kit and maybe sum pics, and prices , gwyns site is good but no pics of the complete kit and like all over 4x4 parts sites no prices (why is that ?)

cheers

OME is well respected as is Devon 4x4 so you could do a lot worse.

You could also do better but OME would be a good compromise while other solutions might be more specific to your requirements and particular truck. Propably worth doing OME now and then tuning later to your specific needs when you feel you understand what these are.

I have OME kit but a different spring set up than Steve suggests.

I had:

764s all round

and on a H/T it sat lower at the back than the front even with a winch/bumper and steering gaurd fitted

So I changed the rear springs for 781s

It now sits level and I prefer it offroad now.

There are loads of set ups available just decide what you want to use it for and massive travel dropouts etc can make for intresting on road manners.

Standard set up:
