Defender 2" Lift

Hi guys,

Planning a 2 inch lift for the defender, was looking at springs and shocks from paddocks.

Would i need extended brake hoses aswell or would the standard ones be fine?

Anything else i would need to do this?

Cheers.

Hi davy
i would recommend that you fit extended brake lines with a 2inch lift i fitted britpart kit from Paddocks to my disco and have found it to be spot on, Also for the Britpart snobs out there Britpart now give a a 2 year guarantee on there parts!!!
cheers see you on sunday 14th

Hi
i would really recomend that if you get two inch springs of whatever make, go for the plus 5.5 inch shocks. terrafirma do them along with old man emu and pro-comp though dont think their great seal wise.
Google Gwyn lewis 4x4 and have a look at what he has got. a great bloke and fantastic service.
it may cost you a bit more for the longer shocks and new mounts as they use pin - pin but improve articulation ten fold.
as H109 has suggested brake lines would need doing.
have you thought about weight of your vehicle what your going to add on? winch/s, roll cage etc maybe in the future?
if i was to start again i would put a 1 inch lift and raise the seat boxes three or so inches in the back and have the plus 5.5 shocks. but thats alot of work.
without doubt Old Man Emu is the best suspension setup you could buy!

Yeah been looking at the 5.5 inch shocks, would be great but think il just go with the 2 inch ones for just now.

Yeah going to get a winch and bumper at somepoint aswell and probably do an engine conversion as its a 2.5 petrol, was planning 200tdi.

Cheers guys see you on Sunday.
