1 x Steering Damper relocation Kit.
Weight :- 2KG
Part No :- GL80RHD-GL78
Manufacturer :- Gwyn Lewis 4×4.
The Kit includes :-
1 x GL80RHD Pin/Pin Damper clamp on mount.
1 x GL78 Side mount.
Fits:- Discovery 1 and Range Rover Classic with Pin/Pin steering damper RHD, (LHD kits are also available).
This kit allows you to move the standard steering damper from the track rod (rear bar) to the drag link (front bar) in front of the axle, the original damper is normally on the rear bar behind the axle and gets caught and bent when off roading.
This kit uses the original Disco 1 / Range Rover Classic steering damper, Pin/Pin fixing and has 8-1/4 inch of travel, for general off roading with over size tyres this kit is fine.
If you wanted more steering lock I recommend you use the Defender Eye/Pin steering damper and GL79 Eye/Pin mount that has 9-1/2 inch travel (this only applies if you are going to adjust the steering stops to increase the turning circle with small tyres for trialing).
If you do want one for the Defender style Eye/Pin steering damper click HERE, this kit will also work with a return to centre steering damper.
I can do a LHD version if required.
The GL80RHD clamp on mount will fit all heavy duty steering bars from 29mm to 32mm and obviously our SUMOBARS, this one is for Right Hand Drive only.
The GL78 side mount is multi hole fitment as there are so many different types of steering guards which are sometimes in the way, the ability to use the different bolt holes allows you to fit the side mount so that the damper does not foul the steering guard, ideally you should mount the damper as far forward as possible.
