Did you use the 1" or the 1.25" spacers? And did you use the hubcentrict to vehicle or hubcentrict to vehicle and wheel centrict to wheel?

Also, did you have a shop do everything? Or just the calipers?

1.25mm spacers . I bought the spacers from someone on expo portal and thus have no info except re size... I think they are hubcentric to vehicle and wheel centric to wheel. I would give them a call... They must have an idea what other LR order

Just to let you guys know.... You only need to test fit wheels on before you grind anything. Make sure you can spin your tires freely without any rubbing. If you rub then you can check to see what's touching and where. Then decide what to do next. This way you didn't damage anything permanently.

I have used wheel spacers before. I think they were 1.5" and I never had any issues. People who complain about them don't really understand them.

Do you think I should consider using something like this as well?

Four Uprated Ride Height Sensor Rods For 2.5 Inch Lift

And should I also consider the IID Tool or both?

Did you add Ride Height Sensor rods?

I got the rods from green oval in Australia. They are much better than anything else than I have seen as they have three different heights and thus you can run the rods at a normal height and then switch them to off-road or extreme off-road whenever needed.

I'd say you could get away with just rods but the best setup is the rods (I run the ones you linked to above) AND the GAP tool. While you can change ride height with the tool, the rods + tool gives you the most adjustment and you don't have to get under the truck to change things, just push some buttons on the dash.

I think the GAP tool is a must-have for these trucks. I don't think you have to spend the extra for the Bluetooth verion - I did and have never used the BT functionality. It's pretty easy to use just on the steering wheel buttons. It may or may not give you enough lift for your tire size by itself; it varies from truck to truck how much lift you can get depending on how the sensors are bolted to the frame...and given Land Rover's incredible attention to detail on that front, it can be fairly different! Some people can go 80mm and some only 50mm.

I'd say get the rods - you don't need the adjustable ones (unless you really want them), fixed are fine - then you can fine-tune with the GAP tool up/down.

I am very curious how this goes, but I know a few LR4 folks who used spacers or drilled out the wheels instead of spending the large amount of money on Compomotives. They have had no problems at all and do the trick just fine.

At least Erin has lots of help from this group! :)

Erin, are you going to run at 2.5" lift full time? As I mentioned, I have the same rods as Michal and only did a 30mm lift with my IIDtool, don't want to run lifted full time. If I went with bigger tires, I would need a permanent higher lift.

I'm not going to run 2.5" all the time. Just want to adjust the EAS appropriately for the bigger tires.

Do you guys know if my lug nuts on my current 19" rims will fit on the 18" LR3 rims? I'd rather not have to buy new ones since they are around $200.00 for a set of 20

I've been emailing back and forth with Lenny at Motorsport Tech and he says the BORA off-road spacers are just as good as the Motortech Sport ones.

They are little less expensive... any thoughts or anyone with experience with the BORA brand?

That needs some explanation because I thought BORA was just their brand name ....

Adaptec and Bora are two lines made by Motorsport Tech as they were acquired by Motorsport Tech last year.

So... I think I have everything on order that I need. If I'm missing anything let me know.

Wheels and wheel center caps
Off-Road Lift Kit
Spacers
IID Gap Tool


Still have to order tires... but will wait until the wheels get here.

Will we see you tomorrow in the LR4?
