The +2" "harsh ride" of LR3/LR4 was not due to increased air pressure in the springs - that's a myth. In fact there is no more pressure in the raised strut, just more volume of air. You only get more air pressure when you add weight to the truck. The "harsh ride" is due to the new control...
@nwoods This is definitely worse case driving....and that was on the smaller v6 brakes rotors if memory serves me. Good to see you back around here lately. Getting back in the LR ?family?
On OEM v8 brakes: I got 35-37k on pads, 65k miles on rotors. Use: typical rural mixed driving, w/32"...
I would +1 everything @Victory_Overland said; "Best mod ever" and "If I ever upgraded to LR4..."
Just to be little clearer: Not the LR3 North American gasoline "V6 brakes". 17" rims requires Disco3 TDv6 brake rotors and caliper hangers sourced from ROW.
Thanks! Yes - confirmed with Google that d5 does have optional 2 speed TC and up to 2 locking diffs:
If you dont want to learn, you can always pay people that were willing to.
I prefer the EAS and its advantages over coils: auto load leveling, adjustable height, Axle-Cross-link articulation, etc
If you value simple over these, go with coils. Nothing wrong with coils.
Sasquatch Rods i think...Mine are about 10+ years old and still working well. More durable than OEM for sure.
I dont use them for lift, I only use mine to re-center the height sensors at about 175 calibration. The sensor's limits are 150 to 250.
The range of usability is limited by...
Posted on the other thread the IIDtool menu should help. You dont just have short rods, you have adjustable rods! I used mine to recenter the height sensors and get more range of motion without fault, but thats a discussion for later.
TexasTJ - I am so confused by your post...why have lift rods to "drive in access (+2) mode with no rubbing"?
That is +2 inches and -2 inches so essentially OEM stock height. If stock height doenst rub, why do you need short rods at all? Unless you are just trying to drive in +2" 100% of the...
Wish I did this years ago...Disco3 TDv6 smaller brakes, BMW X5 17" wheels, and 33" BFG KM3s (LT285/70r17).
>> Less suspension lift = more wheels on the ground
>> More sidewall = less flats
>> Lower PSI = Better ride on & off road
>> BMW wheels little more offset = no rubbin without spacers...
Interesting. I just ordered an IDDTool BT from L8. An upgrade from my EASControl which has been flawless for 10 years.
Hopefully have it and a new set of height sensors in a couple days to test.
My truck literally only complains (red faults) on the hi-way (any road really >30mph)...
