D-90 1995. Front axle question.

I have my eye on a 1995 d-90. It was stolen and stripped of the front axle housing, radiator, all lights, all tires, windows broken out etc. She has 129000 mi on her. Body looks clean salvage value anybody? If I buy ill need an axle housing. What rig should i scavenge from Discovery? What yr? and should i buy both the front and rear axle housing's? what would you guys do? Thanks a million.

1994-1999 D1 or 1994/95 RRC. in both cases you will need to change the front rotor's and calipers to d90 spec. the reat is the same.

Thanks for the info helps alot. As the truck is on its frame rails in front ill need to find springs and stabilizer arms for axle will the disco parts work? The d90 needs a complete front axle, track bars, springs, brakes, pitman arm drive line etc can i rob all these from the disco?

Yes, with exception of the drag link and the pitman arm everything is the same.

Why do you need to change the rotors and calipers? I swapped a disco axle in the rear and used the calipers and rotors.

The front calipers and rotors are smaller on a D1 then they are on a d90. The rear is the same on both cars.

How hard will it be for me to find d90 calipers? Could i use the disco brake system until i find the d90 parts or would it be unsafe 2ndry to?

Justin at Lucky 8 can get them for you, or even the local auto parts store might be worth a try, I'll bet Justin's prices are better though. The Dsco calipers are just smaller diameter pistons, they will work just not as well.
I've even toyed with the idea of using a disco pitman arm on my Defenders simple because the setup is stronger, the drop is not as much on the Disco arm though so that will lead to more angle on the drag link leading to more bump steer. The benefit is loosing the silly joint on the Defender pitman arm in place becomes a simple tie rod end.
