19 inch Rims with AT Tyres and Spring Lift

Hi Guys,
Just thought I'd share some pics of my DS. Factory black 19 inch rims with 255 55 R19 Cooper LTZ Tyres. I have also done a spring upgrade using Eibach Springs. Total lift is 60mm including tyres. Pics are taken on Moreton Island, Australia. All sand driving. The DS didn't even look like getting stuck even when the bigger Nissan Patrols were having a hard time . My wife is 170cm tall to give you an idea of height.

That looks AWESOME!! I have 20s on mine and I was thinking of going with 275/45R20 in the Coopers LTZ or the Atturo Trail Blade XT.

What is the part number on those Eibach springs? Did you have them installed or did you do it? Any warnings or codes being thrown?

That looks awesome as well as totally badass. Yours are the first pictures I have found that show what a DS looks with a lift and A/T tires. Congrats. Thats a great rig, and thanks for posting.

Questions, if I may:
What were the dimensions of the OEM tires that you replaced?
Are the springs removable? (I am leasing my car)
Does TPMS still work? Any other warnings?
Any changes to handling on pavement?

I used to work for ARB so had some invaluable help.. Fronts were easy...ish. The rears took a lot longer. Normally LR would probably remove the fuel tanks to remove the lower control arm but we didn't. We released the control arm and sensor brackets and levered it down. Then we used spring compressors and levers to get the spring to seat correctly. The biggest issue was getting the rubber insulator to reseat with the spring as it slipped into place. In the end some well placed cable ties did the job. All up they had the vehicle for a day and this included time for a 4 wheel alignment. I have kept my OEM springs to refit once I sell.
-My vehicle doesn't have TPMS.
-The OEM tyres I replaced were 235/55R19.
-The springs are E30-71-007-01-22 - Eibach Pro Lift Kit for Land Rover Discovery Sport. (Listed as 30mm lift but mine came up higher!)
-No warning codes being thrown.

I cannot be happier with the ride. The springs maintained the ride quality whilst giving me the lift. Handling is a little less responsive because of the height but consider it a small trade off.(Actually I haven't changed my driving style at all)
Sort of looks like the new Disco...actually better!!

Only a small increase at the moment however as they wear they will get a little noisier.
