My buddy's F-150 has a massive lift kit on it. Just gives you an idea of how tall defenders are compared to normal cars
There were a myriad of differences between a series truck and a 90/110/130. the 90/110/130 changed quite a bit through the 80's and early 90's. Things like doors, windows, floors, seat sliders, seat box and trans tunnel designs, transmissions and transfer cases, but none of those changes coincide nor were they intended to coincide with naming the product line defender in 91.
Seats, coil springs, front disc brakes, completely different steering design, power steering became an option, these were all changes from the Series 3
If by Range Rover springs you mean coil springs like most non commercial vehicles have evolved to then yes. Rover had spring ratings for many different springs which were color coded with the paint splotches on the tops of the springs. They would actually put a slightly stiffer spring on the drivers front to keep the trucks from listing to one side. Spring rates differed considerably from model to model based on equipment and drive train selections.
