Well, I didn't get to ride yesterday, but it was a productive day for me with my tow vehicle... 2000 Land Rover Discovery Series II.

I installed a new drag link and turned all four rotors yesterday. That completely eliminated the steering wheel feedback I was experiencing under heavy braking.

Up next is a set of new OME shocks and maybe a 2" lift...

Some photos from the job...

Putting her up on the rack


Turning the rotors


Nice and true...


Driver's Front


Passenger's Front - With a nice look at the new Drag Link


Driver's Rear


Passenger's Rear


All done!


Took me about 2 1/2 hours working by myself to complete the entire job.

Monday I'll throw it up on the alignment rack and dial everything in to make sure the alignment is in good shape...

I'm very pleased with the results. I have no feedback in the steering under heavy braking at all.

I ended up taking about .004" off each rotor face to get rid of the warpage.

Sounds great. Looking forward to working on it and riding, but I gotta spend some serious time shoving crap from stable to make room!

Jesus,thank God you fixed that shimmy was downright scary to ride in!

Can't say it was a good use of your time though...even I got my KLX250 out and rode for several hours with Bill Super.

Back to garage today for Fantic trials project,Hey,I do have a little more Aluminum Welding for Mark,Got to replace some broken fins on the cylinder and cylinder head. Wondering if he needs me to tear it down completely or If I can just bring him the complete engine?
