What you did with your fender inside trims?

M/T's are too much for SUV I think, but looks badass Very Happy.

As the Free 2 is built on the same base would it be possible to fit these?


Just to let you know, I inquired H&R about this and their answer is below Sad

Hello,

Unfortunately we do not have raising springs for a Freelander.

We have not tested the Evoque ones in a Freelander so we cannot
say if these will fit.

Best regards

Wow, impressive! Thank you cli for sharing the info!

Can you please give more details about how the car handles after the mods? Did you had to make any adjustments to other parts of the car (CV joints for example)? Did you get a chance to see how the geometry of the wheels is?

Very nice Thumbs Up , but this thread questions whether you may be close to exceeding the CV maximum working angle in certain circumstances?

The handling is unchanged
Small bumps no long exist
CV Joints are original
The tops of the suspension struts have urethane bushes
Designed by JJJ (I think)
Produced by Martas
Yes the cv angle has changed very slightly

The wheel geometry barely altered
Very very slight wheel alignment adjustments after the bushes were fitted
(hadnt done an alignment for 50 000kms so the adjustments may have been needed for other reasons)
Checked alignment after the bigger wheels were fitted and no changes were needed

Update:

Best mod i have ever done to a vehicle.
Offroad ability gone from great to awesome.
Onroad handling not noticably changed.
Corrugated roads now rarely destabilise the vehicle at speed.
Slight loss of 0-100 performance due to torque decrease
Offset this with a performance chip.
203,00kms and still going strong
