I've been looking for a few days for some kind of bolt-on coil-over hoop mount that will work on a 110. So far I've found a number of weld-together more generic kits intended for other vehicles that might work but nothing specifically intended to be mounted on a Defender.
What I'm looking to do is to take the suspension linkages from a D2 and a set of Diamond Axles or Currie Aluminum Rock Jock setup with full-floaters and D60 knuckles and mount those using Bilstein 9100 coil-overs onto a 110, I'll be buying a new frame to do the work and assemble the new rolling chassis prior to moving the 110 over to it hopefully by spring.
1. Can anyone help with finding mounts/suggesting ones to adapt?
2. Does anyone see an issue with the approach? I'm patterning it off the Wildcat suspension setup but the don't even run coil-overs and have not done a modified watts linkage to improve articulation.
I have another truck for trail runs, this one will be mostly for daily use and very long distance driving, I put about 50,000km on a year heading out to various climbing destinations and mountaineering trips and having something that'll handle great on-road and keep its off-road manners as well is the goal. It also gives me a chance to mount some better brakes, stronger knuckles, axles, etc while at the same time cutting the unsprung weight significantly all using readily available and servicable parts.
