Will a LR enthusiast/expert please help out a relative newbie?

If I do a 2" lift on my 110, should I go ahead and upgrade my radius arms? If so, I would be very interested in these... Seems like a good deal.

Thanks.

When they were designed, Jordan @ RTE was calling these "the front 4 link". Obviously they are not any kind of 4 link suspension system nor am I claiming them to be. They are radius arms that are adjustable so you can set your front pinion angle/castor. Instead of the typical radius arms for a 3" or 5" lift these can be set for either, or a 2", or anywhere in between- which is nice because as we all know, for many reasons new springs usually don't provide the exact amount of lift they advertise.

These are not on the RTE website, special order only.

not a 4-link, just adjustable radius arms...

Kent, no, you shouldn't need new radius arms for a 2" lift. I put 2 Terrafirma lifts on 110's (one was mine) and have zero issues...

Sold. I'll pick them up tomorrow along with the RRC - cash in hand.

Thanks.

Tell me about the covers - what I really need is an alternator.... It ate itself 80 miles into my 1000 mile trip today!

It is a Rover - all things considered it wasn't too bad and the spare with a shot bearing is limping me along so far. All part of the adventure - still trying to figure out why I didnt just have it shipped?! Ha ha

Send me your email and I will send a pic. Joel had asked about them just before he decided to sell. I have a Tdi coming from Ca and decided to ship this one as I have way too many similar trips to yours. Fun, but difficult to plan around. It really helps selling to Rover folk too, as it is the norm not the exception. Be safe!! Oh, and no alt on the shelf, sorry..
