These NEW Pin/Pin Rear Shock Mounts have been designed to use a Pin/Pin fitting Shock on the rear of a Defender.
It is a known problem for the upper Eye fitting on standard fitment rear shocks to break off due to lack of sideways movement.
A Pin fixing allows more movement in all directions without breaking off, which has been well proven over the years by my +5inch Challenge Pin/Pin Rear Shock mount.
This Mount will allow the use of two lengths of Old Man Emu Pin/Pin shocks, we can supply Standard Length in Medium Duty (GL2005) or Heavy Duty (GL2006), or +3inch in Medium Duty (GL2007) or Heavy Duty (GL2009).
If your Defender is light and you need more rear end comfort then you can fit Standard Length GL2000 Shocks, or the same in longer travel GL2001 Shocks.
This Pin/Pin Rear Shock Mounting is for use by those who want the much improved reliability of a Pin/Pin fitting shock over the Standard Eye/Pin fitting and that do not need the maximum amount of Axle Articulation available from my +5inch Pin/Pin fitting Challenge mounting.
These mounts bolt on directly in place of the original Land Rover Shock mounts, you do not need to move the Fuel Filter mounting on TD5 orPumas which you need to do with my Challenge Pin/Pin Rear Shock mounts. These mounts are GALVANISED and come with the required bolts.
If used with standard length Pin/Pin shocks then you can keep your anti-roll bars and your springs will not dislocate, this is good for road bias cars and for those with lowering springs, you won’t need extended brake hoses either.
If used with +3″ Pin/Pin Shocks you will need to remove anti-roll bars, fit springs retainers, re-locators and extended brake hoses.
These mounts will work with lowered springs up to 3″ lift springs when used with the correct shocks, all of which we can supply.
