    Thumbs up Sagging Disco (Right hand side)

    Hi Guys,

    Wonder if anyone can shed some light on my problem? I drive a 1997 Discovery V8 with 160 000km on the clock.
    The problem is that I became aware of the vehicle sagging on the right hand side some Km back. Thought it was the coil springs on that side. Fitted an Iron-man suspension (coils & shocks) all round.
    She is still hanging on the right hand side! Front more than the rear.
    Any views would be appreciated!

    I am sure whoever installed the iron man would have checked/noticed if something was "wrong" underneath the car.

    Swop springs left too right. Right hand drive vehicles have longetr spring on right to comepsnate for camber on road and drivers weight.

    The landy has solid front and rear axle. Torsion bars where do you find them. Sway bars can influence height?

    The best thing to do is to park the vehicle on a level surface with the wheels in a straight line. Note the surface must be level. Now measure the distance from the top of the rim to the the beginning of the fender. Note the difference say 5 to 10mm. You can purchase poly spacers in 5mm and 10mm to fit on top of your spings from 4x4 megga world for the ome suspension by asking for the spacer for the disco springs. This will raise the body from the axle to correct the level. It will not raise the body from the chassic as in a body lift. Before you do this make sure you have the correct springs for you vehicle.
    The Old Man Emu 10mm Trim Packer is designed to act as a shim to level out listing vehicle. Fit a Trim Packer to to the rear spring on your vehicle's low side to level things out if your vehicle lists to one side Always fit the Trim Packer to the the top of springs only, and not on the bottom

    Thanx Landjero for that chuckle!!

    Beans, would the OME poly spacers would fit the Iron Man's?

    Yes they should and easy to fit at the rear. Loosen the shock and jack up the body of the vehicle and then slide the spacer on top of the spring. If you have a air jack it works the best.
