    I like SLS and am buying new bags as a preventive measure. Have had to carry a few heavy loads recently but with that and ACE it’s really impressive how normal it feels. Good luck fixing it!

    I’ll just replace with all new standard front springs and shocks and do the air bags and rear shocks too I think. She’s probably complicated enough without buggering about with it. This will be one hell of a bill!!!

    I would like to swap for some steel bumpers at some point, have seen an especially nice non winch one on eBay, not a bargain at £400 but nice! My rear bumper is damaged so that will get replaced at some point regardless and the plow is on the...

    I had already read that thanks, I can’t see any real horror stories from people that are running lifted D2’s and I’d imagine there are plenty of them out there. I have the luxury of it being a toy which I mostly use for laning weekends and the...

    I had this, saw a suggestion for turning ignition on, engine off go between P and 1 quickly and fairly vigorously a few times and viola, mine has been fine since. He says crossing his fingers.

    Disco 2 40mm lift with SLS and ACE

    Why? As on my Wales and lakes trips this year my D1 at standard height on the same 245/75/16’s had issues with the departure angle on occasions, the D2 has a massive arse and I’m suffering from some sag at the front, if I’m swapping springs and...

  7. AdamD1 replied to the thread Disco 1 What’s its worth/what to do with it.

    Im not hurt in any way, I had around £500 in my head. I will be wanting to add difflock to this one at some point but jamesmartin’s reply to my other thread made me realise I’m well out of my depth there! I’ll list it with a £400 reserve and see...

    That is exactly why I didn’t bother getting into it, if you can do it yourself I’m sure it’s not the end of the world to do but I just don’t have the time or inclination, have a new toy to waste time and money on!

    It would be a real shame to break it, it’s been no trouble at all to me, never let me down and starts first time every time, have been all over the place in it. My circumstances have changed and the D2 being a bit safer and a nicer place to be...

    Disco 1 What’s its worth/what to do with it

    [ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH] so my trusty 300tdi has some rot that I hadn’t spotted until mot time, big fail on my part especially after the amount of work I’ve done to it but I’ve decided to go for a D2 rather than get the welding done. I’m...

  11. AdamD1 replied to the thread Disco 2 CDL Retrofit using 300tdi parts?.

    That sounds rather complicated for my limited skills sadly, servicing and replacing bits is about my limit. Buying a used transfer box might make more sense by the sound of it.

    Disco 2 CDL Retrofit using 300tdi parts?

    This has been done to death I know but I can’t find the answer I’m looking for. I have a 2002 facelift TD5 auto without diff lock linkage or the innards, slight fail on my part! However at the moment I still have my D1 300tdi manual which I was...

  13. AdamD1 replied to the thread Dodgy Brakes.. L322 2002 Hard brake pedal hardly stops!!!.

    My recently purchased D2 developed a hard brake pedal though not always. Turned out to be a hose that had popped off, sounds daft but worth checking! Listen for leaks from the servo, maybe try cursing it just enough so it knows you’re irritated...

    As it happens it was paint, before I got it they said it had some done and I couldn’t work out what they’d done. Those were clearly the before pics as it’s all good now, thankful it’s not another job for the to do list!!!! Learning about the D2...
