my springs & shocks came from these people .. http://www.tbruk.com/index.html?lmd=39379.390671 ....and cost £380 ish quid .i know thats quite a lot for 2 springs and 4 shocks ..but OME is good quality stuff :D :D ..

DO NOT move the spring mounts ... ..lift is attained by fitting larger tyres ....to accommodate the larger tyres a suspension and/or body lift is carried out (i've got both on mine)



wonder if your mate is the one i spoke to on the "Devon4x4 forum" about making me a winch bumper at his workshops in exeter :wink:
