Suspension Refresh

08 D3... 120k...

I know the front end needs doing (knocking over rough ground - silent on road and anything encountered in city though)...

I'm looking for a cost effective solution in Perth. Any recommendations as to where to get the parts and/or the job completed?

You may find getting airbag/shock assemblies shipped from the UK difficult, as not all of the usual vendors are happy to ship anything classified as Dangerous Goods.

Some are happy to do so, and are set up to do it, it just takes a bit of hunting.

I order most of my spare parts from Advanced Factors, one of this site sponsors and they offer a discount for forum members. Last order only took 7 days from order to delivery in Aus. Very happy customer.
Cheers

Hi Aedo

I have just had the front end of my D3 done by Tickle's Discovery Automotive in Wangara. They are LR enthusiasts and have been looking after my vehicle for the past 5 years. Highly recommended!

Cheers

I have just replaced both front air springs. Got them shipped from LR Direct in the UK for less than half the price over here.
