As mentioned before, RRC axles are not rated for the weight of the 110. Whilst i'm sure they work fine, if you have an accident that results in an insurance/police inspection, there is a strong chance the insurance could be invalid as an incorrect part has been used. A salisbury should be replaced with another salisbury (or perhaps a later TD5 axle if i have read other posts correctly).
Edit - VB beat me to it!

The number of people that think it is ok to use disco alloy wheels on 110s also amazes me - it should be published more widely that some of these conversions are incorrect. Too many mods are carried out in a haphazard way that could result in unroadworthy and potentially dangerous vehicles......you only have to search back through this forum to see what can happen (sadly).
