Why? What are you trying to achieve? Lift - more carrying capacity - flex?

There are a lot of retailers in the UK that carry the 'police' springs - just pickup any LR magazine and you'll find a dozen or more ads. However, unless you actually are a policeman and travel the M1 at 70mph you might not be altogether happy with them.

The OME springs are much better for off-road and/or load carrying. I tried the 'police' springs and they sagged like a surrogates titties with any slight load. I've had OME 781 rears for about three years now and they are the same height as the day I installed them.

Regards,

Steve
