Can someone advise a Landrover mechanic/specialist involved in the 4wd scene in Brisbane north. Trying to sort out suspension/tyre issues and other things.

ARB, TJM, Opp Lock are not much help.

Can't blame them when it comes to something sophisticated like a Landrover.

Truckster,

Just trival mainly, bits and pieces, but annoying, time consuming.
e.g

1. disco has TJM springs (about 40mm lift), but original shocks, polyairs on back. sits highish, std tyres, rides seems hard. do I need to do anything with swaybar etc. i.e suspension. think original shocks are maxing out due to lifted springs, buggered if I know. need it all looked at.

2. want a bashplate, protector plate made for fuel filter near rear tyre etc

3. Tow a camper (1000kgs, 125kg drawbar). std towball too short for AT35 hitch, too close to bumper, need longer but landrover shaft 53mm not 50mm (std aftermkt tongues sloppy).

4. plus whatever else comes up

Basically I need experienced all in one operator for advice relating specifically to this vehicle.

Try MR Automotive at Redcliffe. Excellent LR workshop for all makes and models. Don't know about advice for modifying suspension, etc but worth a call. They have a heap of photos on the walls of Landrovers doing crazy things off road - as you do when you have a Land Rover and not a Torrak Tractor.
