How much should I remove?

Post by Guest on Wed Dec 29, 2010 11:23 am

Hello everybody, I've started to fit a 2 insh lift kit (spacer rings) to my L-series 5 door freelander, the back have gone on fine, then the boss wanted to go shopping so going to be finishing the full lift tomorrow (weather permitting). Before been drag around the shops I had a quick look at the front and noticed that I was going to have to enlarge the holes in the inner wings where the steering arms poke though......... Now before I go chopping I would like to hear from anyone who have got around this issue.

Many thanks,

Paul

Well spotted.. once fitted, with the car in the air and wheels on you should be able to see what needs to be removed...

On the L-series... (maybe others too) main word of warning here... Diesel pipes/ clutch master/slave pipe down the nearside... make sure they are clear when u start cutting!!! Smile

The lower part of that inner wing is double skinned. Cut down to that point at the rear of the hole. You can either just fold the flap inwards using a hammer or trim it off properly. Personally i would trim it properly then paint the bare metal.
Pip has said already, be carfull of the diesel pipes on the nearside.

I found "hit it with a hammer" very useful! That's what I did! no problems, covered with rubber guard.

Thankyou very much Pip, I was a bit worried about cutting the hole in the wing, but Mantec supply a template and all was good in the end, it does come with a 'u' piece of trim that pushes around the hole making it very tidy job.

Hey guys, in the end of the day, after the lift kit what size of tyers can be fitted? does it need wheel spacer? I was thinking to use 235 x 75 x 16 but my original tyre is 235 x 60 x 16 and is pretty close to the base of my springs.
I am a bit concern about rubbing in the sides or shocks base.

cheers
