Would the ones from a 97 disco be the wide or the narrow? I haven't measured yet, I'm just holding on to both(all 4 actually). I was hoping to do the bushing on the disco ones I have laying around, to save time when I swap them.

Aight, so a disco rear disc axle housing setup will swap right over to a 90. Anybody know about if it'll do it to a 110 with a sals rear end?

You could swap it but the sals diff is wayyy stronger than the rover diff so you should keep the rear sals in there. If you want rotors instead of drums you can swap in new rotors.

Since you are in the UK you could also go to the breakers and buy a sals that will come with the rotors from the factory but I think either way you should keep the sals in a 110.

Itís pretty much a Dana 60 so it is strong and when / if you decide to buy gears or a locker you can use Dana 60 parts and save some money compared to rover stuff.

I'm aware of the strengths of the sals. It's a 24 spline set-up from my 98 Disco with ARB GBR axles and 4.11s so I'm ok with swapping down from the sals. The idea is to just get the shit off the Disco and onto the 110 so I can completely scrap the remains of the Disco and then rebuild the sals into equivalent to the Disco set-up and have a toy to play with then have the remaining rear 24 spline to throw onto the 90 down the road for funsies.

Since you have a 90, not a 110, the disco rear will bolt right up. To fit a 90 axle to a 110 (or vice versa) you need to account for the 1in extra diameter in 110 rear springs by moving the spring plate (drill a couple more holes and/or reposition captive nuts ie no big deal) and fitting the proper spring plate. You will have to use a shorter driveshaft with a sals than a rover rear axle due to pinion length.

Word. Thanks for the input. Originally the stuff was going onto the 110, but it's received some dents on the front wing so it's going to become the offroader... onto the 90 the parts shall go.

Alright. Disco LHD front axle housing to a RHD 90. What was the verdict on ease and extra stuff I'll need. Deployed now but going to take this on when I get back and putting all the Disco goodies onto the 90.

Actually taken off road

Finally got a chance to take the truck somewhere besides the beach. It wasn't MAR, but it was close to home.
Dog wasn't crazy about it though.

Frame is going to the galvanizer, finally listened to everyone. Still contemplateing the bulkhead.

Had a Fuel fill cut to match the NAS truck so it would work with my under seat tank. It would of been easy, but the tub had some bondo right in that spot.

Roof is getting painted

middle section is the color, 26173 semi gloss gray

I have done it before. Not hard, not very easy either but the end result will look better if you are painting.
