Anyone have a part number for the 110 rear isolators? I'm just seeing the 90 ones.
I run them top and bottom in my Range Rover Classic...I even hang one from the rear view mirror when Briggs is in town.

It's so quiet and smooth in my truck I can hear myself think!

For a nice upgrade you could go with a genuine progressive spring all around.

Front you could go with NRC8044/NRC8045 - 155/215 progressive

Rear you could go with NRC9462/NRC9463 - 210/240 progressive
or NRC8044/NRC8045 - 155/215 progressive

These shouldn't give you a lift at all and will take up the smaller road bumps better than stock. Those isolators can help vibrations but will add 1/2 lift.

I also purchased a set of the new gas charged Defender shocks. Supposed to be a nice ride.

I think the LR HD Springs and Brillstein's are a good combination. Wait until Memorial day weekend and get Rovers North to eat the shipping when you order them. They usually offer free shipping that weekend.
