Rear Shocks

Yep, they were nice and easy, took just over an hour to change both sides, main hassle was the bloody alloy nuts not accepting sockets, and then when I swapped a particularly manky one for one on the spare wheel carrier, I ballsed that up and snapped the stud off the carrier! As the other […]

MOT Pass and Advisories Sorted!

Well the Landie passed it’s MOT earlier in the week finally, so thought I’d sort the advisories out yesterday. Easier than I expected (and def. easier than my 300-series) the shock bushes needed changing as did the pads. As I had new shocks to go on, I just replaced the whole unit as it has […]

Typically it is the front and rear port studs that snap, although I was fortunate to only lose the front port studs. A number […]

Off-Roading at the Weekend…

…up on Salisbury Plain, and taken some awesome looking photos! Some good ones were taken from the boot of Lloyd’s Discovery 3 – awesome vehicles those offroad, wish I could afford one! My favourite images are here, with the full 870 images here if you want to sift through them! No photos of my truck […]
