I'm in the middle of a rebuild of my Defender 110. Chassis is now completely torn down and off to be blasted. What was just going to be an engine and transmission swap has turned into an everything swap.
I like the current height of my truck but was wondering what stock components should be upgraded while it is easily changed? The truck is almost primarily going to be on the street and my daily driver so I don't need any crazy off-road equipment. Ideally something that gives me great road performance and handling given the large increase of horsepower with the new LS3.
So question is 1) what components to upgrade and 2) what are the best suppliers of the new components?
Also wanted to ask if anyone knows of a good air bag solution for spring replacement. I really like the idea of being able to lower the truck on the highway or to allow for easier access to parking garages. I have seen the air bag man system on their website but it does not have pricing nor can I find much specific information on operation or install. I could only find a Youtube video that showed a guy hooking up a trailer and then using an external air compressor to level the truck. My ideal solution would allow me to change the ride height from the drivers seat using an integrated controller.
Thanks in advance for the help!
