This write up and thread saved my life! http://www.landroversonly.com/forums...pension-68194/
Well not really, but saved my LR3 for sure. I was eyeballing this conversion for the last year or so but not wanting to swallow the pill. After several attempts to resolve my ongoing "cross articulation" suspension fault to no avail, I decided to bite the bullet and finally tackle this conversion. I have a LR only indy shop nearby, they couldn't solve the fault. I have a dealer nearby, they couldn't solve the fault. I have done extensive research and also purchased LR specific software to recalibrate the suspension...also a no go!
So I pulled the trigger about 2 weeks ago and bought the HEAVY DUTY conversion kit by Old Man Emu (OME) from Atlantic British. At the time, it was on sale $100 off, and I signed up for there whatever thingy and got another 10% off that, free shipping. I was going to do the job myself, requiring me to purchase about $300 in tools and gear, since I've downsized my tool chest about 2 yr ago. Plus an alignment +/- $125 for a total cost of $425.
At the last minute, I decided to call a local shop to see if they could do it for me. My guy says yes, they do this conversion on Lincoln Nav's all the time. How much? $775 including the 4 corners, the splicing in of the ecu defeat box, and the alignment. SOLD!
The install was a bit of a headache, but this linked thread was super helpful in providing some insight for the shop that did the work. Also, I have to say, the instructions provided with the kit were thorough and comprehensive. I read them with a fine tooth comb before dropping her off. When the shop struggled to get the red fault light off the dash, I asked them a few questions and that identified the missed step. 10 more minutes, wua-lah!
Additionally, I was extremely happy with the quality and build of the parts from AB, really top notch stuff. So how do I like? I LIKE! A word of caution, the heavy duty kit will add at least 2" over the stock normal ride height. As previously mentioned in the linked thread, the standard kit will drop it 1" from the stock norm height. That was not an option for me since I already run over sized 32.5" BFG KO2's. But be sure to measure your garage clearances before to ensure fit post install. And the truck rides perfectly. No bucking bronco truck manners, just a touch tighter than stock. With the additional lift, I haven't lost any cornering confidence whatsoever. This is probably the best repair/upgrade/maintenance decision I've ever made for the 9 years I've owned this baby. I don't yet have any off road experience. But I did go through a deep swail the other day at an angle, and all four wheels were touching 100% of the time.
If your wondering whether or not to do it...DO IT!!! About $1800 out the door for a 2" lift and never another suspension fault!
