Crashed 😩 Imperial metrics.... 🤣

The job was done by a local 4x4 suspension specialist but not real expertise is needed just a regular suspension shop could do it.

No holes or any modifications needed but the rear is complicated due to the lack of space to work otherwise the fuel tank has to be removed. Total time was 5h it cost me 100€. The spring set was 334,66€ including shipping, the springs are made by a company in Poland.

I know there is an american manufacture that lift the discovery using some supplements in the springs so you use the stock springs costs was similar, but if you are on that side of the ocean it might be of interest to you.

Sorry for the poor quality pics.
The tires look tinny now they are 235/65R18 I will drive it a few hundred kms and then go for the taller, more of road oriented tires.

Handling of the car is almost the same, suspension feels a bit harder and I guess in the twisted roads will be less agile bit I havenít had time to drive anywhere else than around the city yet.

Happy with the Eibach product and delivery time.

Interesting. So an inch in the front and two inches in the rear. Who did the work and what was the bill for parts and labor? Did any new holes need to be drilled anywhere? I like the concept but I have to see if it's cost effective.

Next will be tires and/or spacers.

There has been much discussion of the DS' off-road abilities including ground clearance and the need for lifting, and how it compares with other vehicles. This all made me curious so I did some research. The figures provided come from various sources including manufacturers' web sites, Wikipedia, and off-roading web sites. I found when the same vehicle was shown on multiple web sites that the numbers given were consistent across web sites.

Crashed Thanks that’s what I concluded after reading and checking pictures from other members. I am searching for options in that size.

When shopping for new tyres I was told a 255/60r18 will fit - you can get the new Pirelli Scorpion in this size.


I would have got these but ended up finding some 17" wheels instead.

Crashed Hi guys!

This conversation prompted me to register.
I am planing to lift my Discovery, put some spacers and install a sump guard.

I am having a hard time deciding between the aluminum or the steel sump guard, could someone drop some knowledge that would help me decide?

Also my stock wheels are 235/60r18 and I want to put some off road tires with higher wall to assist the lift.
How could I know what tire sizes would fit my rim?

Thanks a lot!

[email protected] I installed Pirelli Scorpion ATR 255/60R18 tires before I got the lift and they fit just fine, no rubbing. The Eibach lift has made the ride a little more 'sporty', but have sure increased my clearance and reduced sagging when full of cargo. I've gotten use to it and think that's a winning combination for this car.
