Couple items

Rear Upper Shock Mount Bracket (pair) (will take hardware and bushes if you have as well in good condition)
Shock Tower Retention rings (pair)
Spring isolators (both front and rear.


Anyone have? OEM or aftermarket OK as long as in good condition

edit: all this is for a disco axle set up but should be same as a defender

I have a pair of 2 inch drop rear upper shock mounts - were on my truck prior to swapping to my Rockware hoops, if you're interested.

Ok. Not sure if there are any negatives to running those with a 2" lift...will look into and get back to you.

They are precisely what you need for a 2" lift, if you're using stock shocks. I'll try to see if i can fit these into a flat rate box.

Just make sure you install 1" longer bump stops if using 2" lower shock mounts.

10-4. My concern would be you would bottom out the shock on compression if it was too low. I guess that's a legit concern!


Ed shoot me a price on those brackets when you can.

Yes, I've measured everything up with the springs out and with the normal 1" extended bump stops, you can safely use the 2" lower shock mounts. With stock bump stops, you will bottom the shock in articulation.

It is a good setup for people with a lift. The lift springs usually prevent you from hitting the stock bump stops and you lose useable articulation.

Also, depending on the length of your springs, you may need to do something to prevent the springs unseating. Something to check.

Good point. That I won't know until I get it all together. Can always add cones later. Then again I will prob never get this thing that twisted up to find out.
