Steering Stabilizer Disco front end

I just got my Disco rear end in my 1985 D90, I finally have breaks, what a difference.

My question is, we started looking at the Disco front axle, and I see that the steering stabilizer is on the rear of the axle, it appears that I could set it up on my 90 either way (I think)
Question is, should I leave it like its set up on the 90's, or try and make it like the Disco?

Leave it like it is. Its super easy to hit the stabilizer with the Disco setup.

Good judgement comes from experience,experience comes from bad judgement.

x2 on the D90 location. The D1 location is stupid if you off-road. I moved it on my Disco.

Four wheel drive allows you to get stuck
in places even more inaccessible.

The Disco tie rod and drag link are interchangeable with your Ninety set up. Use the stuff from you Ninety.

Like Doug and Tom both were saying, go with the Defender style setup-I moved mine to that style as I upgraded steering components on my Disco.
