Default How to identify a wide angle prop

Mornin all,

Pretty much need to do what the title says. My rear prop needs replacing and the UJ's are going on the front one so i thought stuff it and ill just replace them both. My 90 came with a two inch lift though but im not sure if the props have been changed to wide angle ones or not. Would i just be able to replace them with standard ones or would this affect things because of the lift.

Cheers in advance,
Dave

I bought some Defender 90 TDCI wide angle props for my 90 as its got a 2" lift, it does make a difference. You can use standard props but your uj's will wear out quicker with the lift than normal (stating the obvious)

The TDCI props are a straight swap - i got mine off ebay for 200 delivered
(taken off a delivery mileage TDCI this year)

Wide angle (aftermarket) prop : PM1083 | Wide Angle Propshaft - Rear Defender 90 300TDI

You can see how more "open" the ends are where the uj's are

Oh that is not cheap. Might be a 'one at a time' job lol. Can definitely see the difference though and mines are standard which explains the dodgy uj's.

Cheers dude

wide angle props will only last longer if issue is yokes binding before that point they are no better than std prop ,transmission sits a little further back on a 200 tdi that later models

+1 what JM says, wide angle props wont fix a problem with 2" lift you will be wasting your money. Are you getting prop bind with your current props? if so, thats an entirely different problem!
