NAS D110 Lift Height ?

Trying to figure out how big the lift is on my truck (done by PO).

Need someone to measure from the ground up to the bottom of the wheel arch (measure thru the center of the wheel) - and tell me your tire size and lift/brand (if its lifted) so I can work backwards.

Did some searching but no luck. Wondering on garage fitting after a re-shoe and potentially some new springs.

I am running 285/75/16s and get about 39" or so from the ground up to the wheel arch. Its a little lower in the front. I assume I have about a 3" lift but thats just a guess. The springs on there now are supposedly from a Disco lift kit or something.

Post a pic. I think my 90 with the same tires in the front was around 35-36" - I at least have the rear at 36" from the ground to fender. Hope that helps. That's with a 2" lift from what I remember. I have OME 761 and 762 from what I remember.

Lots of info regarding heights, associated with "garage" threads on here.

Best to start by stating your garage height max here, then work backward from there.

Hey Josh,

Thx for the info. I can figure out the garage fit (std 7'door) but also trying to determine how much height I lose if I swap springs and I will also be going to a smaller 31" tire - I don't want to be running 31" tires on a 3"+ lift as thats not the look or performance I am going for.

If anyone else out there could take 2 mins and measure for me that would be great. Just want some macro numbers I posted above so I can figure out if new springs are needed or not.

Do the springs have a part number or paint code on them? Old Man Emu wraps a little tape tag around the springs with the part number on them and Land Rover paints a series of colored stripes on the springs. That would give you a very good idea of what springs and the amount of lift you have.

Ah - great idea Oliver - I saw the front springs and shocks sloppily painted chassis black with no tags so assume they all were. The back one did have a tag - OME 754 so that helps as that info is available on the web. Not sure what the front springs are but no big deal since it sits level now so I can use the 754 info and work backwards. OME-754 springs are rated VHD and should apply 50mm (2") lift on heavily laden D110.
