Well,the lift springs are installed and I couldn't be happier although they are probably just now standing down from the red alert at Visa that happened when the charge hit the system. The work was done by Overland 4x4 of Alexandria, Virginia, that is a specialty shop for Land Rover, Range Rover, and Jeep (and one 1996 Bentley that is impressive). Their holding lot has classic Defenders of all wheelbases and years, Discos 1 and 2, and classic Range Rovers. Mine was the first DS to be in their shop.

The mechanic who did the work said that I probably got 2 and a half inches out of it, and he was pretty impressed with the DS on the whole. How does it drive? I have put maybe 20 miles on it since I got it back. The miles are on-road - from interstate to neighborhood streets - and the on-road ride is unchanged, and it actually handles the neighborhood speed bumps more smoothly than before the lift. If you have been on the fence about the Eibach lift springs, here's a vote for get off and do it.

Just curious, what did they charge and how long did it take?

Overland estimated 5 hours each front and rear for $1700, including 4 wheel alignment. The actual turned turned out to be a little more, to the tune of $1950. The parts from Eibach were $420. I probably could have saved a few dollars by going somewhere else, but Overland specializes in Land Rover/Range Rover and has very good reviews. This being my first new vehicle in 20 years I wanted to take it to someone I was comfortable with.
