In answering another thread about OME suspension a gent called Tony mentioned about putting 80 series coils on board my Rangie to stiffen the suspension up, I'm interested, at present I have the OME shocks and I'm looking to put some springs in, I don't want to compromise the articulation if that's possible, that's one of the reasons I have this beastie, the other is the excellent fuel consumption (snigger)....

Greetings, I had Ranchos on a previous Rangie and found them to be very good. I'm about to fit them to my GQ

Martyn, the experience I have had is in the Out Back Challange in a Rangie and using 80 Series coils gave a heap more travel and a better ride hight, (and the body was lifted 3") we run them with OME shocks.

Tony,
Thanks for the reply, Outback challenge, right!!! Did you have to do any other mods and also what size tyres did you fit after this little excersise, from there what motor was fitted to turn the axels, I only have the bog standard motor and haven't any great desire to change it at present, this is just a "bush hack" for having some fun in, I like the sound of the extra tarvel and the extra lift though.Keep the shiny side up

You can get Army heavy duty coils for the 110 which will fit the Rangie.
This will stiffen things up alot.There are Land Rover specalists who can supply them, DON'T go to the dealer!
