Discovery I drop arm on D90 box??

Will the Discovery I drop arm fit the D90 steering box, ie are the splines the same?

I already know the drop arm does not have a ball joint (that's the point).

Has anyone made this mod??

Seems that even though the arm is shaped differently and is "higher".....the ability to use a TRE should allow it to still be used.

Not a real problem. The disco arm has slightly less drop even with the bottom mount TRE (ball joint in Land Rover speak). If you do make the change, I am interested in your take off arm and the cross tube. I would even trade you for the disco stuff. I should add that you would want the disco tie rod as well (it is where the damper mounts on a disco).

Most people go the other way because the damper on a disco is vunerable off-road to damage.
