LR Discovery Suspension

Hi all, thank for advice received so far, it really helps.

Next job, suspension.

I want to replace the springs and shock absorbers on my 1995 3.9 V8iES and
would appreciate advice on what to fit and where to get it from.

Given my grossly inexperienced status it seems sensible to buy a "kit"
including bushes, nuts and bolts etc.

I am aware of "polybushes" but don't really know what they are.

Confidence and understanding of my Discovery is growing now that my 16 year
old son and I have given the old Disco a better service than it has probably
ever had so while we are still bursting with pride and enthusiasm we want to
tackle the suspension.

One last thing.... I tow a trailer weighing 2 tons a lot of the time so need
uprated suspension at the back.

Thanks

Les

PS. This is the third time I have posted this, the first vanished into
thin air. I see someone has been posting test messages as they too seem to
have a similar problem.

either dump ntl or subscribe to newsgroups using news.individual.net , a
google should find their registration site.

I did both in the wrong order but am much less stressed now.

Your multiple postings are making it 12000 miles across the world where
they're reallu beginning to annoy me. I'd suggest that you stop your
multiple postings otherwise you may find that (at the best) people stop
being helpful, and at the worst they get downright nasty.

You've done this twice now, so it's third time unlucky for you - pull
this stunt again and the fun will really start.

Thanks Paul, another well informed comment, but you are a little ahead of
yourself.
The term '****wit' is a newsgroup term for someone who REPEATEDLY and
CONSISTANTLY proves themselves to be impervious to knowledge, enlightenment
or advice.

I have not been around this newsgroup long enough to qualify.

What about the subject of the post?

Does anyone have an informed comment about suspension that would actually
help me?

We all have to start somewhere.

Les

Les, may I suggest that you get your posting problem sorted out using one of
the alt.test newsgroups, and then come back with your suspension query?
Fresh start and all that.

Your query is a valid one, and you will get a lot of help and interesting
responses from this group. However, repeatedly using a specific newsgroup
as a test-bed for your news program and/or news server won't make you many
friends here.

I think you'll find we interpret the term ****wit quite broadly here :-)

Thanks Richard, in my own defence I think I am being hit a bit hard here.
It is NOT me that is posting the test messages, I do, however, sympathise
with the person who is. Of course it is rather out of order to use this
newsgroup as a test bed for a news server or program, looking through recent
posts, even the "test" ones, does not suggest that anyone is. Some posters
are having a problem, however, and it is reasonable to allow them a bit of
leeway so that they might sort it out.

When I post to news groups other than this one, messages appear quickly and
reliably.
I am quite new to this specific newsgroup and I have found that sometimes
posts simply do not appear, at least not visibly to me. If after waiting a
few minutes my post has not appeared, I re-post and hey presto, it works.

Only on one occasion (my post re- Suspension) has a duplicate post appeared
(this one was actually sent three times). This is irritating for all of us.

Les

Fair enough. I wonder if you are being patient enough (take that the right
way). When I started on this ng a while ago, using the BT news server,
posts could take anything up to 6 hours to appear, but they all did
eventually. Now I use news.individual.net and it's instant.
