steering damper - Disco vs defender


Recommended Posts

Having aquired some sumo bars at Billing, I want to fit them this weekend. Hoever, since I have a disco, rather than a defender, I need to move the damper to the drag link. The kit supplied to do this with the sumo bars assumes that you will use a defender damper which appears to have a differnt fitment to the disco one (defender = loop/pin disco = pin/pin).

Question is, since I already have a nice shiney new disco damper, does anyone see any problems modifying the supplied mount and using that on the drag link?

The mount supplied by Sumo to fit the track control bar on the Disco can also be used on the drag link to fit a DISCO damper. BUT you need a braket to fit the damper on the chassis rail end of things tho a bent plate with a hole in it appears to be all that is needed. In order to fit a defender damper you would need the special swan neck on the drag link which is where your hole end of the damper fits and the chassis bracket.
