    I've had loads of Terrafirma stuff, currently sitting on a +2" lift kit from them along with extended braided steel hoses on the brakes, highly recommend the pro sport shocks too, this is my second set and only on these as I fitted +2" springs.

    Brilliant handling, I don't have anti roll bars on my Discovery and even with the lift it isn't wallowy at all and has great flex and articulation, can be seen here.

    I needed to fit dislocation cones after the first outing on this suspension as I didn't realise exactly how much droop the shocks allowed the axle, heavy day out and we drove home as if we had only been to Tesco for the groceries, well worth the extra money.

    Hey, did you have any luck/buy the raptor kit?
    Just been looking at the same one, I want to stay clear of the similarly priced terrafirma kit as had some bad experiences.
    Wondered if the raptor kit is any good for the money!

    On mine theyr dampers were rusted bad after less than 1 year and two of them ''dead'', too bad i didnt take pics of them, bought a full set of monroe which are still good after 2 years... and here's one of theyr's braided hose after around 14 months, was not touched by anything just blew... i ended up without brakes far from home(as i lost the fluid), i removed them all, binned them and fitted corteco all around.... so for me it was bad investment as i paid twice for all those parts in too short time
