LandRover Coil Spring Workshop DVD £9.97+ 2.50 p+p worldwide

One of the most rewarding jobs you can do on your LandRover whether its a 90 a 110 a range rover classic or a Discovery 1 is up rate the coil sprung suspension.

 

Our full length DVD shows you how to change everything in your coil sprung suspension system from the bushes all the way through to the springs, shocks and arms. Empowering you with the knowledge and confidence to it yourself.

 

The purpose of a vehicle’s suspension is to support the weight of the vehicle and absorb impacts, maximising the tyre’s contact with the ground while maintaining stability and control. When using a Land Rover off-road the limits of the standard suspension are quickly realised when the lack of wheel travel affects traction and ultimately the vehicle’s ability to maintain forward motion.
The added benefits of long travel suspension are exponential. Taller suspension allows larger tyres to be fitted as well as allowing greater suspension movement. Raising the suspension will also increase approach, departure and ramp over angles allowing your Land Rover to overcome larger obstacles.

 

Here's some of the things we cover, and there are lots of thoughts I mention along the way to save you time, effort and problems of course.

 

Front Springs (+2")  TF014 TF018 TF015

 

We get right in there with the camera and show you how to remove all the old springs and shocks which is half the battle with seized and rusty nuts and bolts. Its my baby we're working on and I'm passionate about the build and want to share with you the details of course. A few precautions are mentioned on the way as we don't want anyone getting hurt. Building your vehicle is part of the adventure.

 

Front Shocks (+2") TF116 TF118 TF120 TF122LT TF123 TF129 TF125 TF127

 

Ok lots of different flavours of shocks to choose from and above are the part numbers of the TerrafirMa parts this covers the fitting of. I show you exactly how its done from start to finish so you feel like you already know the job and problems to look out for before you even start. Just one tip hint or trick could save you hours of backtracking or worse!

and all for just a tenner. Don't forget we also show how all the brackets fit for the twin shock kit ! It looks smashing

 

Front Coil Spring Dislocation Cones TF501

 

All part of the removal and replacement of the front springs and whether you intend you use them or not if your fitting a suspension kit and going to strip the front suspension down why not add them in your build, they look the business.

 

Front Shock Turret Securing Rings (heavy Duty ! ) TF502

 

Almost a necessity on almost all the models they fit, Defender, Discovery, RR classic, Usually rotten and not very pretty and if they look good will the studs snap when you're removing your old ones ? Get these ready to go, its all covered on the DVD and you'll see why I had them ready.

 

Tubular Front Shock Turrets TF503 TF504

 

Fabulous looking bits of kit and like the securing rings almost a necessity because they rot like a goodun. Don't bother trying to save the old ones as once again if you are fitting smart new suspension gear then this will be an part most like to be rotten so treat is as service item for your suspension system and get rid of the old and fit the smart new.

 

Front Coil Spring Retaining Plates TF505

 

Another standard item that really should be considered part of your new kit as stress and fatigue will have taken its toll on this item too.

 

Caster corrected Front Radius Arms TF508

 

Ok the guvnor part and a very big lump to change and can be difficult. In the DVD as you will see I like to investigate the easiest least stressful way possible of doing the job. Apart from having a ramp to do it on I did the job solo and the ramp didn't necessarily help, we use it to get in there with the camera that's all. So your big bolts may all be seized solid into their sleeves and all manner of other problems may arise but I show you the easy to remove them all and get on with the job minimal pain and suffering.

 

Rear Springs (+2")  TF015 TF023V TF027V TF010 TF019 TF011

 

Ok a bit different to the front springs and you may have to release you axle from the grip of the A-Frame to allow it to drop a bit to get your higher springs in. Its not brain surgery, but it is a bit of a lump so make sure you watch the details on what to do in preparation and a few ideas on releasing the joint from its taper. Brake pipes too are things to watch out for and shown in detail.

 

Rear Shocks (+2") TF117 TF119 TF121 TF122LT TF124 TF126 TF128 TF130

 

For those that haven't experienced the difference between worn out shocks or worse, worn out oil filled dampers let me just say the difference is phenomenal. A short story, I had an RR classic and one day after a particularly horrific high speed (70mph) motorway bend rollercoaster white knuckle ride from which we never fully recovered I fitted some gas shocks on my full fuel disposal spec (3.9L) vogue and the same curve was possible in comfort and control whilst towing a trailer ! It is unreal what a difference so see how to fit these life savers in detail.

 

Rear Cranked Radius Arms TF509

 

These are an easy one to fit considering their size and importance. Always get new nuts, bolts and bushes for both ends. Assume they are going to be seized before you start and give them a good soaking in wd40 and then watch the dvd for the quick to get them out of the way, no fuss no stress.

 

Rear Coils Spring Dislocation Cones TF510 TF511

 

Dislocation cones ensure the rear springs relocate after dropping away on full suspension articulation when using longer travel shocks or lowered rear top shock mounts. A super easy one to fit while your changing your springs so get them ordered as part of your upgrade and see exactly how they all fit in on the DVD.

 

 

Rear Coil Spring Retaining Plates TF506 TF507

 

Coil springs can part company from their mounts when long travel shocks are fitted. Heavy duty spring retaining plates are used to secure the coil spring to the axle to make sure they relocate when the suspension compresses again. Its pretty easy to see where they are but a bit fiddly to do so have a look at what your in for before you start the job.

 

Front + Rear Bump stop Spacers TF515

 

Increase the size of the original bump stops by 1" to help prevent larger tyres from touching the bodywork on full suspension compression. They are also used with lowered shock mounts preventing the shocks from bottoming out. Easy to fit with the right spanners and on the DVD you'll see there location and the nuts and bolts that hold them

 

Caster Correction Bushes For The Standard Arms

 

These replacement bushes are the alternative way to get the correct caster angle back after your Land Rover has been lifted. The Polybushes have eccentric centres which rotate the axle the 3 degrees required to correct the steering geometry for vehicles lifted 2-3". I had to use the press but I also demonstrate how to do it without one although getting them in will

 

We also show you how to fit

 

Lowered Rear Top Shock Mounts TF512

 

For up to 2 inch more (50mm) suspension drop out these are the bits of kit for the job and we show them in location and where the mounting nuts and bolts go through the chassis.

 

Twin Rear Shock Mount Kit TF513

 

Smart looking items we show them fitted up with a twin shock kit and all the details and thoughts on doing it at home. Both Chassis and Axle mounting brackets. Very Very Smart looking kit.

 

Twin Front Shock Mount Kit TF514

 

Tubular twin front mounting kit, top and bottom brackets all demonstrated and fitted so you can see how its done and what it looks like on completion.

 

We have spent days filming the details of this job so that you can see all the potential trouble spots when removing your old system and then painstakingly put it together for you as fitting instructions.

 

If this DVD saves you one mistake, skinned knuckle or head scratching moment then its worth every penny. After you've watched it you will feel like you have done the job personally and can then pass details on to any friends or forum members you want to help.
