I have just had the lift springs fitted to my DS. The lights seem fine so far without any adjustment. I havent had a opportunity to try out high beam too much yet... so not sure if there are any adjustments required for these.

Unless you are changing wheels/tyres for a non-standard size, you there is no need to adjust the speedo.

Right, but the tires that nigmar28 installed are 255/55R19 while the original were 235/55R19, so the speedo would show a slower speed because the tires are 3% larger in circumference.

I've responded by asking what the ride's like in normal mode (rather than dynamic/firm) and whether the system throws any error codes, they're going to chase up some people who've installed the springs on AD cars for some feedback for me - might take a while though.

Getting closer...
Hi Meddo,

did you ever get an answer to your follow-up question or did you fit the Eibach springs?
My Disco Sport is also equipped with the Adaptive Dynamics and I wan't to raise it with the Eibach kit...

Greets & thanks,
Hauser

Hi folks,


I also have the Eibach Pro Lift kit installed in our HSE Luxury. (+ KO2's on 17" rims and Rival 4 mm protection).
I am happy so far, except of some strange noises which occasionaly occur (Turning wheel at slow speed, "klicking" noise on
small bumpers).


Greez, Caol

For the people that have the Eibach springs, is it a doable DIY job or would it be better to let the professionals handle the installation?

Hi guys,


Great thread - exactly what I have been looking for: we've just bought ourselves a DS as a "family adventure vehicle" - and will (from my experience with a Freelander) need a bit of a lift to prevent bottoming out on little trips off road.


It's now 1 or 2 years since some of you guys fitted their lift kits: what is the experience with them? All good?
