Not that I know of

Best bet is to get a rear axle from a 1994 - 1999 Disco series 1 pretty much a bolt in swap

Yes, swap a Discovery I rear axle for your 90 drum brake axle.

I am soon to have the same problem!!! I was told by a couple of people that 1-1/4" spacers would fix the issue. Where did you find the discovery axles? Can you change out the enitire rear end?

I found the axle in my country bahrain used one for a disco if u wont i can fined u one but the shipping will be very expensive

Check this link they sell spacers so u can fit them and then u can fit ur alloy wheels

http://www.4x4tyres.co.uk/defender/3...rs-p-1431.html

Check with them i think the shipping to us will cost 10 gbp

Welding ? Shouldn't need any. The disco axle is a direct bolt in replacement, you pick up the 24 spline axle shafts and rear disc brakes-nice upgrade and only takes a couple of hours. The local pick and pull yard here sells them for $100.

I found an complete rearend today from a dicso 1. Will it bolt in or do I have to weldup any parts. Or can i just swap out the axels and reuse my current housing? Which is the best in the long run? I have a 1992 Tdi defender.

You can just bolt the entire disco axle in no welding.

You could also put the guts into your 1992 but that would be more work.
