Did you get the work done yet? Happy with the setup?
Thanks for chiming in

Just dropped the car in for a set of Cooper Zeon LTZ 255/55/19.

Have been dealing with a mechanical issue, which is delayed requiring parts from UK, so have delayed the springs until that's sorted... wouldn't want to provide an avenue for buck-passing.

Should hear back this afternoon if the fitment went well.

Fitment seems to have gone well. Tyre guy said it was real close front and back, but did fit, and if I wasn't going to get the lift, then he probably would have said no.

I think the stance is much improved. Looking forward to trying out for real off-road. Seems to have improved ride-quality. Not so harsh going over small bumps etc anymore.

Lift is about 15mm.

Speedo has more or less been corrected too... My speed was out by -6KM/hr before, now its only -2.

Nice video we took climbing up from Oaky Beach, Murramarang NP with a Patriot X1 and ISI 4x4 4 bike carrier in tow, featuring the Cooper Zeons. Weight is <1.5T

Very competent. Didn't air down at all.

Haven't got the lift kit in yet.

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.
Hi nigmar28,
Thanks for the valuable information shared! Im just starting my offroad adventures with my DS and want to be as informed as possible when it comes to mods and warranty etc..
Mine's an HSE TD4 DS 2016 - After becoming bellied out on the track way out of Bribie Island on Australia Day, Ive been searching for advice on exactly what you've done so I don't have to be as 'clearance concious' moving forward ! Ive spoken to Eibach last week to get this moving, sadly they're out of stock until March with the springs...
Your DS looks great with the lift, hope to see you offroad or on the beach in the future!
Side note - Graham at Land Rover Newstead kindly pointed me in your direction...
Cheers - Tim.

How heavy is that trailer looked like it was pulling without much issue, I usually pull an ATV with some equipment (very little) on the trailer the rest of stuff packed in my car how did you find it and how was your gas milage after pulling, those tires look pretty awesome as well! I'm looking at getting a set come the spring to replace my summers.

Trailer GVM is 1.5T and tare is 960KG. I carry 40L of diesel, and 140L of water in it, water was 50%, diesel was empty, so I estimate about 1.35T.

And yes, Disco didn't really care.

On the highway I use about 11-12 L/100KM pulling the full rig, which is why the extra 40L of diesel comes in handy!

Hi,

I have been following this thread for a while and now have a set of these springs inbound.

Quick question are there any noticeable issues with the self levelling xenon headlights once installed? Will the system still adjust the level correctly at startup. If not is there any manual adjustments required/possible.

I have a HSE with adaptive headlights but from what I read all xenons may be self levelling.

Any experience you guys could share would be really appreciated.

Dan
