    Land Rover VIN look up?? Topix, VINDECODERZ Not working ??

    My experience is vindecoderz only showed detailed information for LR3's not LR4's. Or, if I'm not remembering correctly, it was hit and miss with LR4's.

    Best quality replacement LR3/4 front lower control arms

    After owning my LR3 for the last 8 years and trying different arms and bushings. I would have to say stick with the Meyle HD, or go with RRS arms as @tdhunter13 stated above. Stay away from Poly bush all together whether it's the stiff Orange or the softer Green. They simply aren't flexible...

    LR3 upgrades options what to do

    You're going to love the LLAMS, I've got it and use it almost daily, it's a solid system. Regarding skid plates, if you were to add just one plate, I would add a Tactical 4x4 gas tank skid (or equivalent). I installed mine in 2013 and it is completely beat to ******** saving my gas tank from...

    GAP IID Tool Guided Suspension Calibration issue

    You don't need to put it in tight tolerance mode, the guided calibration takes care of everything for you. Get in, make adjustments at each corner, get out. Done!

    LR3 Tie rods???

    I've pretty much always replaced the inner and outer at the same time. If you only do one end, it's only a matter of time before the other end wears out and you'll be right back in there to replace that, and you'll need to align the wheels (AGAIN). My LR3 eats tie rod ends like M&M's.

    How to Bleed a 4.4 Cooling System?

    You'll probably have to keep monitoring the coolant level each day or as it cools down and top it off as needed. After a week of driving it should settle in somewhere. The top T-bleeder valve (under the engine cover, near the front of the block) is a good place to dispel air in the system.

    NAS LR3 build with an overseas twist

    I have the same set up as you (minus the NOCO) and want to share my experience with you regarding wiring the solar panel directly to the AUX battery. I have the USI-160 traxide system, not sure if you have that one or the SC80. The solenoid is designed to work with the charge coming from the...

    Air suspension and Alignmets

    An alignment is highly advised once you settle on the desired daily driving height as the wheels lean in/out depending on the height you drive at. You can take it to any reputable wheel alignment shop, but be sure to ask if they have experience with LR's so you know they can handle the job.

    LR3 block heater

    I live in Minnesota where the winters get cold. Last year we had a polar vortex whip through and the temps were around -25F (-32C) or colder and my LR3 could handle it no problem. Sure things go a little slower but it never lets me down when it's that cold. Save your money for maintenance or fun...
