Bump stops do not restrict articulation as many think, as the axle articulates and the angle increases....the coil spring and the bump stop comes away from the axle, you would have to have very long bump stops to restrict articulation.
These Bump Stops are universal fitment, the mounting plate is a heavy duty 5mm plate with 6 mounting holes so you can fit to Front or Rear.
Suits Defenders, RRRC & D1 Bolt in replacement Front Panhard.
These Panhards include a Heim joint with Stainless Steel high misalignment spacers for bind free movement at the diff mount, and quality Superpro bushes at the chassis end, which due to its free floating crush tube, allows the whole system to virtually bind free. This prolongs the life of the bushings, as well as giving a more responsive and direct feel through the steering.
This kit includes:
1.5" solid 7075-T6 Panhard
7/8" Heim & SS spacers
Machined thread bush housing
What is 7075 Alloy? This particular material has been proven around the world in Rock crawlers, Ultra4, Rock Bouncers, & other motorsports. For it's strength & resistance to bending. Whilst remaining very light weight. 7075 has a memory characteristic, Meaning it will flex & return to straight in extreme situations. Whilst still retaining its strength
When raising your Land Rover, the front axle is shifted to one side...putting your diff off centre
Note there is a 14mm AND 16mm Bush Sleeve variants of these.
*The most foolproof way to identify which you need, is provide us with your VIN number at if your not sure what size yo need.*
THIS KIT DOES TOP AND BOTTOM - HI TENSILE HARDWARE INCL.
Different strokes for different folks....but contrary to popular belief (information regurgitated over and over by those with no actual experience), To retain instead of dislocate in a front radius armed truck, you will most importantly increase your rear roll stiffness, which increases your stability off road especially in off-camber (or leaning) situations, whilst not losing ANY flex. (Remember a spring will stretch as just much as it compresses)
This makes your vehicle not only more capable by introducing additional roll stiffness to the rear suspension geometry over a dislocating setup, which in turn will make your vehicle more stable, more predictable...but also forces more of the suspension forces to the front...forcing it to work harder. A must for any front radius armed truck!
Just look at any competitors in any offroad events, in any discipline and you will be hard pressed to find any rigs running dislocation cones. (except in the UK 'green-laning' and 'twistoff' flex ramp scene)
Ask your local fab shop that works on the likes of rigs for Tuff Truck etc...guys that REALLY know their stuff. Mention dislocation...and your most defiantly going to get some fairly strange looks :) ..and mabee laughs when you leave even :D

At KINGPIN Fab we always match shock mount height to your shocks...so some ask why why we sometime opt to include these in our custom suspension kits we put together.
We most commonly use these in our own setups to reduce UPTRAVEL, if though conversation about the vehicles intended use, we decide that due to the lift we can reduce some of the up travel to unlock transfer that wasted portion of uptravel to down travel. We are able to unlock down travel by say adding a 25mm spacer for arguments sake - then match with a turret that is 25mm lower than what we would provide if not using spacers.
Someone who like to give it abit of a squirt an/or agressive driver offroad on the forestry tracks/tarcks between tracks, or does beach work etc etc...definatly would benefit from keeping all the up travel avail in most cases.
Running 37" tyres will often require running spacers too - if you want to reduce the amount of trimming to be done. Our personal preference s to cut the rig to fit the tyres however. It all depends on the setup of course though.
These Offroad Series of the Superior Engineering Superflex Radius Arms are Suitable For Landrover Defender 90/110/130, Discovery (Series 1) and Range Rover (Series 1)
Superflex Radius arms not only correct castor angles after performing a suspension lift, but also utilise standard OE spec Nissan Patrol rubber bushes in the Radius arms.
These features allow for increased articulation and eliminate the need to use expensive Poly aftermarket bushes that are considered inferior to OE style rubber bushes.
The Superior Engineering Radius Arm design will also permit you to run a Superior Engineering Radius arm Spacer washers to push the front diff forward, increasing clearance and achieving a better approach angle.
Superior Engineering SUPERFLEX Radius arms were designed in 2008 for Competition Trucks to benefit from maximum articulation as well as Excellent High-Speed Handling as well.
High Tensile Bush Eyes
Massive 32mm main Beam thickness for maximum strength
Rubber Bushes pre-fitted into arms and rear bushes and washers are supplied
Laser cut to precise measurement and caster location
Authentic Superior Engineering Logo machined into side of Arms
Sand blasted with rust prevention applied
Powder Coated for maximum durability and finish
Adapter plates and bolts have an SA5 Zinc coating for rust prevention
Allows vehicle to track correctly on road due to correct caster
Factory Nissan Patrol bushes fit the SUPERFLEX ARMS, We don't use special sizes Bushes
Superior Engineering's Super flex arms are a Patented Design
Patent No's. 2008202797, 2010100451
Supplied as a pair with rear bushes and washers and all other parts needed for a correct fitment.
Note: factory sway bar will need to be removed
(pre-93 rigs with narrow arms will require modification to the Superflex arm to fit - we can do this if needed +$175)
This kit is to convert a STRAIGHT Land Rover rear Swaybar for OFFROAD use!
Obviously being able to run a swaybar on-road is going to bring back some lost road manners as well, so it's a win-win situation.

Chromoly Heim Joints with Zinc Misalignment spacers + Jam nuts
New pre-welded axle brackets
New swaybar chassis brackets
The rear end of a Rover with its A.frame and trailing arms is highly lacking on any roll resistance like the front end with its radius arms. By running a rear swaybar, you introduce some roll stiffness back into the rear.
For offroad this has a number of advantages that it seems are not commonly understood.
By introducing roll stiffness into the rear, with a swaybar system that is laid out so you do not loose any flex, you are nor forcing more of the suspension forces throught he chassis to the front. The front end now can begin to work in a better balance with the rear..in which every one knows is easy to get to flex. Whats far more impressive and better offroad is a suspension system that works together in balance.
Common assumtion tells us that a swaybar will kill flex and we must either use dis-connects or remove altogether if we are to have better offroad performance. Lets pause for a minute and think about the pinnacle of the technical 4x4 scene here in Australia...TUFF TRUCK!
You will be supprised how many teams are using offroad swaybars systems. Sure, they are running dual triangulated four links with hyrdo steer up front with little to no roll stiffness at front compared to rovers with radius arms up front with bucketloads of roll resistance, but they recognise the advantage of introducing some roll stiffness to thier systems...namely the rear. These guys are fully cycling 16-18" shocks with ease.
This kit includes everything you need for the conversion...MINUS the swaybar and the brackets that fix the swaybar to the chassis brackets.
