Chassis overhal

Hi all, I am just starting a chassis overhaul including all the suspension
components, my question is where is the best place to get the bushes and
nuts, bolts and washers etc: for the brackets and bushes from, and the other
thing is, would it be worth the fitting of Pollybushes now or do I go for
original bushes, I know this is the age old question but I am confused over
the opinions on the news groups, the vehicle will do a bit of off roading
and trialing but mainly will be on road so please give opinions or links to
such sites.

Assuming it's a Defender, then all the bits (including washers etc
not usually listed) are on the site below - most for other models are
also there.

As for Polybushes or not - well, there are plusses and minuses, it's
prety much impossible to give an opinion unless you have a particluar
problem/circumstance you are trying to address. Bearing in mind
how much easier and quicker it would be for LR to fit polyurethane
bushes in production it's may be worth noting that they don't.....

Hi Richard,

Have you thought about offering a kit of bolts for doing specific jobs?
It would be invaluable for those doing rebuilds to have sensibly
packaged parts of a known quality rather than making do with large
packs of generic nuts & bolts. It's a bit of nightmare wading through
any website looking for LR partnumbers.

I'm speaking here as someone who has in the past recieved four hundred
quid's worth of nuts, bolts and other "bits" in a "full" 110 CSW
fittings pack from LR Fasteners (it's a pretty heavy box....) His
packs are all very well and good (every LR part number hand written!)
but are too big to be manageable and I was most displeased that the
axle kits are seperate from the "full" kits.

So, can we see a "Defender front axle bolt kit, all bolts+nuts for
assembling axle to chassis, complete with torque settings sheet" and
"Classic Range Rover front axle fittings kit, commonly used bolts and
fittings for rebuilding front axle, including all seals, bolts, brake
pipe brackets, loctite and torque settings sheet". Follow on with
swivel kits including bearings/railco, shims etc as well.

Regards

William MacLeod

Re: Chassis overhal

Thanks Richard for your input sadly it's a classic Range Rover so I need the
correct ones for that basically all the bush bolts,washers and nuts, A frame
chassis mount bolts 3 per bracket, etc
The point about the pollybushes and why Land Rover do not use them could be
that they are not all they are cracked up to be ( only my opinion I have not
used any and is unfounded, just a statement ) but could be that they might
fall apart in the assembly of the parts on the production line..
Oh well must press on.

Famous last words - but they shold all be listed - however the RRC
pages are still "big long lists" - one day all the site will be like
Defender.

Drop me a mail for a quote if you like.
