X Eng X Deflex Anti roll Bar (with pre Td5 90 Adaptors)

$350 plus shipping (located in NJ). less than 1000 miles on the system. we even added line-x for added rust protection.

Production Land Rovers compromise by fitting a weak anti-roll bar which improves the handling a bit and doesn`t limit the off road capability too much. The standard bars only allow the rear axle to droop by 9" (230mm) - so has to be removed on vehicles with extended travel.

X-DeFlex is unlockable (known as anti roll bar disconnects in Jeep circles) - so it does not have be a compromise. Locked it has four times the torsional stiffness of a standard bar, but unlocked it allows 16" (410mm) of unrestricted articulation, selectable at the turn of a switch.

X-DeFlex dramatically improves the on road handling allowing safer high speed cornering. If you have a `daily driver` with uprated suspension, an overland or camper conversion, an uprated or high performance engine, and want your vehicle to give you the maximum on AND off road - this is for you!

The Kit fits the REAR axle only!

to answer some questions, this has been on my D90 for 1,000 miles. this will fit other defenders if you get the right spacers from X Eng.

Are you putting extended travel shocks in it?

I was wondering why you would want a disconnect system on an ambulance? It like putting z rated tires on a unimog.

Ha! You clearly don't understand what this ambulance does. There's probably no more appropriate use.

I have to preface this with the fact that I've been here for 10+ years and bought/sold 100+ items of defender junk. In that time I've bought some things that were more used than expected but never enough to complain.... until now.

Before I bought this sway bar I asked Mark if it was bent because of the first picture on this for sale thread. He said no it is "An illusion". We agreed on $400 shipped. Turned out to cost him and extra 25$ to ship, and even though we did not agree on that I was going to happily pay just because we are Rover people.

I received the kit a couple days ago and it is clearly bent (just as seen in the first picture), plus one of the ball joints is tweaked. It had obviously taken an impact on the curved bracket.
The bend is my big gripe, because I specifically asked..... But its worth noting that the freewheeling hub NEVER had any grease in it an may have been under water so its rusted pretty bad internally, the links look to have been installed incorrectly and the bushings were warped and worn, the spacers have been chopped and the linex is essentially falling off.

After contacting Mark and telling him the condition he offered no fix or fault. I asked if he could ship a replacement ball joint, mostly as a gesture given the misrepresentation. He said no but I could send it back to him and pay shipping both ways PLUS 100$ for replacing the linex that I took (ehm...fell) off... thanks Mark!
That is not the Rover spirit that I have come to love about this community and what led me to post this.

So, this is by no means a huge deal, I'm out a couple hours getting it straight, a ball joint and some bushings. To be fair to him, I think his mechanic removed and shipped the bar... but the bend was no "illusion" and this is just not how this community should work.
In my opinion buyer beware

you purchased the system after reviewing all the pictures. you asked if there was a bend after it was sold and being shipped. i was not aware of any bend and the system was off-roaded for a good 1000 miles and it worked great. not only did you remove the line-x, it also looks like you broke the upper left bolt opening off; i will for sure not take the system back now. and you asked me to replace the entire tie rod not the balljoint. let's get your story straight

Douche! I'll give you $200 shipped for it if you want to get rid of it. (Referring to OP)
