ARB Winch Bumper - Suspension Mod's Required?

Did a quick search but did not see a thread that helps here.

Thinking about moving from a stock D-90 bumper to an ARB Winch Bumper. Do I have to make any suspension modifications to handle the increased weight from the bumper and winch setup? I heard if I don't the front-end will dive without mods.

If so, what needs to be done, and how much will that cost (estimate)?

Thanks guys. GW

You need stiffer springs. A set of stock Disco I or RRC rear springs (RRC rears would be my choice as they are highly progressive) should level it out nicely. About $40 used for a pair.

Thanks Ron. You are my personal D-90 adviser. Might need to put you on retainer. GW
