110 springs

Postby kingsonlim » Thu Nov 03, 2011 6:31 pm

It's about time I give the 110 some new springs as the current set seemed to had sagged. Question is which ones to replace them with? Not sure what it has currently, apart from being rusty, old and battered.

Due to the heavy PTO winch at front, seems logical to go for the HD front springs, NRC9448 for both side with that little lift and being levelled.

The rear is normally not loaded, so am having some thinking on the NRC6389 at 330lbs, which maybe too hard for trialing. So, could I actually fit the NRC6388 at 180lbs (meant for 110 with Boge self leveller, and mine doesn't have that)? I know they will be really soft, and will squad down at rear when carrying loads.

What other springs options will any of you suggest? And at what spring rate combination? I do not necessary need to lift the vehicle, as have no intention to fit bigger tyres. But wont mind a mild lift too.

dont forget your caravan is no lightweight, especially with all those spirits in, oh we drank those, but even so, springs need to be good enough to pull it.

If it ain't broke, I'd be bloody suprised.

Go standard (red/green I think on the rear) and up the front, Red/white might work ok but you may need aftermarket due to the weight (I used to use red/white on the front of the 110 but found them slightly soft on the 90 (diesel rather than V8) so am using Terrafirma TF015's
