Differences steering box RRC / Disco 2 ?

Postby Christoph » Wed 26 May 2010 8:32 pm

Cheers everybody!

Are there any known differences (regarding durability, steering ratio, compatibility) between the steering boxes of Range Rover Classic and Discovery II ?

Is it, by the way any recommendable to swap the older for the newer one?

Thanks

Are you sure that I will need a longer drag link bar?
I assume it to be longer because a Discovery 2 has wider axles than Range Rover Classics.

Modifying pipes sound managable...

Is a Disco II drop arm interchangeable with a Range Rover's?

thanks
