    Been looking at terrafirma +2 springs and +2 shocks all round (FOR MY DISCO 2)
    And also +2 springs and +3 shocks
    With the +2spring +3shock combo im assuming i will need dislocation cones was hoping someone would beable to guide me a little better as im relativly new to all this and was wondering if i need the bigger package or the +2 +2 would be sufficant enough
    I plan on doing a bit of green laneing and some pay and play and the occasional flooding fun play
    Any guidence and help will be muchly appricated

    Your question didn't specify what vehicle you're wanting to put high-lifts on. ;)

    How much off-roading have you done with your D2? They are very capable machines with standard spec suspension.
    Can I assume it's still got air on the back?

    Ive done quite a bit but i would like to beable to go down a bit more than a bumpy gravel track also lots of the lanes near me are rutted like mad and people are getting stuck with 4inch lifts so would be looking to give myself a fighting chance and yes is on air still on the back end

    I see you've already got a thread in the Disco section, so might be better asking this vehicle specific question in there as well as it'll get more views from D2 owners. ;)

    If they are rutted badly enough that they are impassible without getting stuck then they should not be being driven! Have a look on glass website for more information on green laning, they are not pay and play sites and should not be treated as such

    In relation to your suspension question, if people are getting stuck on the lanes due to ruts that is more likely to be clearance between the diff and the ground, not clearance between the body and the ground, therefore a suspension lift will not make any difference.

    More to the point, what size tyres are you wanting to fit. Lifting the suspension has no effect on the ground clearance under the axles which is where the majority of vehicles ground out.
