    Wanted to know if anyone knows for sure if a Discovery series 1 (1989-1998) front differential is the same as the front differential used in a 1992 Land Rover Defender? The reason I am asking is because I am currently converting a 1992 Defender 110 that is RHD over to LHD. Initially I talked to...

    I recently obtained a '86 110 300 Tdi and having major issues. Entire rear differential is shot (pitted, worn and broken teeth on pinion and spider gears) and axle stripped. Need to replace whole rear end. I'm pretty novice at this type of work and need guidance. Anyone know where I can get...

    Anyone know anything about changing the Ratios in these 101 forward control differentials? Are they identical to the Dana 60? I'd like to change from the current 5.4:1 to 3.75 while installing the ISUZU 4BD2TC and R380. Also considering fitting ARB lockers at the same time.

    I just replaced all the bearings on the rear diff of my 1992 RRC. I torqued the pinion nut and its hard to move.

    Where is this supposed to be routed on a defender 90, 300tdi? Mine came zip tied to the exterior of the left hand side radius arm and doesn't strike me as the standard fitment routing. Cheers.

    Hi guys, This is my first post to this forum:) I have a '97 Defender 110 with a 300Tdi, left hand drive. I had water in my rear diff that froze and damaged some of the pinion bearings etc. :( I thought my Defender would have the Salisbury axel, but when I looked at it it appears to have the...

    I just got back from a weekend of Trail Running with my 1986 D110, with the rig mostly unscathed, except for 2 minor scrapes on both diffs. The truck is at stock height, and I have no plans to lift it, so the next upgrade is under body protection (plates) and differential guards. What does...
