two more from today as you can see i had to remove the rear quarter panel so i could get welding my sills on. i moved my wheel arch up a few inches then fixed the original wheel arch back on ,i just used tiger seal and a few pop riveits.

i still have to do the other side,but thats for today then i got to make my bash plates an fit my new suspension and sumo bars.the last job is for after the mot and thats to open the fuel pump up and set my turbo so i get more power at low revs by making the turbo spin up sooner,plenty black reek but it is only 4 screws thats why i went for a 200tdi and a bigger intercooler from a frontera 2.3 Razz Razz

Crickey!! Thats definately gonna need cranked trailing arms!

Are you going the same height at the front? Have you got the correction bushes?


I'm gonna have to measure the height from my roof to the top of the garage door and see how high I can go lol!

i have a set of QT cranked arms but as this is going to be my offroad toy and only on the road for a short time then theirs no need to use the arms{as told by the two partners of the land rover garage i work for}the camber will be out but after a good days offroading it will be out anyway, as for tyre ware it will be minimal as i will be mosty on the brown stuff and yes the front is going the same but with longer heavy duty front coil springs to compensate for my winch and stop the front end bouncing when using it
