Changing Steering from RHD to LHD

Am I correct that to change from RHD TO LHD, I would need the following:

Steering Box
Dashboard

And if so, does any one know where I can source these parts

Many thanks

Yep, swivel assembly for the drag link to connect to and the actual heater itself. Pretty sure the steering bracket listed is the panhard rod mount as they are sided,the panhard rod itself is not.

Doug's site has a good write up on a conversion. The LHD dash parts are getting very hard and expensive to find. You can re-use the dash you have but need to make some modifications to it to make it work. You do have to have the steering gear box, and heater box as they are LHD specific. You can find some used swivel ball housings off a Discovery but get everything as your truck may have a different style.

D-I front axle with D-90 front brakes is your best bet, as there are a few different Defender front axle assemblies, and the hubs vary, making steering components difficult to fit.
