Rear axle spring seat.

Recommended Posts

I currently run X-springs on the back of my Discovery and to get them to work nicely I ended up turning the lower spring seats over. This resulted in a lift of approximately 25mm because of the top hat shape of the spring seat. What I now need to do is replace the rear springs with some HD ones which will also give approximately a 20mm lift when un-laden, this will result in a total of 40mm lift which is more than I require.

Can I safely replace the top hat section with a piece of flat plate (6mm thick steel) reducing the lift by approx 10mm which in combination with removing the rubber spring isolator (also approx 10mm thick) will get the back end back to where it is now.
