Before I put in the RAIDS I had the original 110/130 dampers.
I haven't modified the mounts/towers. They're strong enough for my purposes.
The Heavy Track RAID series is stiffer and more heavy duty than the "normal" HTs.
The outer tubes are 2.5mm thick, so that that the damper still functions in case of deformation of outer tube by impact of rocks.
The Reservoir tube has a big bore (70mm) and the oil volume has been doubled for better cooling & efficiency.
They have solid, robust heavy duty attachments. The rebound forces are adjustable in order to adapt your damper to your springs and / or loads.
They also have a double dynamic protection: - Rebound: progressive hydraulic rebound stop valve
- Bump: extra security in case of big compression impact .......
They are available for max. 5cm longer springs.
I am going to dedicate a wall in my bar for Land Rovers so if you wouldn"t mind, please send me your favorite picture of your truck,write your name and the state you are in, in the bottom corner.
send to; email@example.com
looking forward to the next D90 meet
This is my 1989 90. Originally a hard top now a station wagon. 2.5 "19J" turbo diesel, standard LT77 gearbox and transmission, Colway 235/85x16 mud terrain tyres on Wolf rims, LR seat covers and cubby box, rear bench seats, side steps, electric fan, Td5 Defender steering wheel, soon to have HD Range Rover springs. My only vehicle, used daily to get to and from the farm, running around there, running errands, greenlaning, off roading and towing. 133,000 miles on the clock still pulls like a train and starts really easily.
Also have a 1969 Series 2A 88 truck cab with a V8 conversion, and a 1974 Series 3 88 diesel truck cab I'm breaking for spares.
Please email one of the current MODs if you need assistance.

Randy I havnt wheeled it with ST , but it doesnt feel much diff on road. I was surprised how light the alluminum top is . A friend and I could easily lift it over our heads to hang it from the ceiling. The B hoop from a SW weighs about 1/4 as much as the B hoop ST. The weight between the 2 setups must be close. JP
