2.5 k may buy the chassis , but it wont finish there ,, poly bushes ruin what is all ready a very poor ride , and the extra vibes help bits fall off , so bad that even poly bush have brought out softer ones , seriously just put in original bushes and replace them , the one exception being series vehicle chassis bushes for spring hangers.
good job you didnt have wheel spacers too then ,, one puddle and it would try to leap over the hedge.Dunno as polybushed the trailing arms front and back on my 1992 90 and didnt know too much difference but then was jacked up 2 inches and on 235/85/16 tyres so already was death wobble.
Where should I look, apart from everywhere....
Thanks Tom, that's exactly what I wanted.
I think it's all steel panels, alloy panels? Are some bits steel and some bits alu?
Great post, thanks.
Could you expand on that comment please.
Agreed UMM's are pig ugly however once you'd owned a Land Rover, and weigh up the constant amount of money that needs spending plus weekly maintenance, then you will realise there are far better vehicles out there to consider. A neglected Defender 2.5 petrol will be a MASSIVE money pit to get up to a decent level.
