Here's an interesting article on a product that helps with air suspension failing and dropping to the bump stops.

I ordered one last week.  Should be at the house when I get home.  It's one part of my plan for 33" tires.

Limit straps on an LR 3/4 Discovery 3/4? That's full of win right there!

It's actually a critical piece of the puzzle, as well as getting the angle of the extensions just right.  Talking to Justin at Lucky8 he said they killed many CVs in the development process. 

 

The spacers sit on top of the struts between them and the chassis mount but by themselves don't actually induce any lift because the height sensors are not affected.  So if you want lift you still need rods or the LLAMS tool or something like it.  They limit up-travel relative to the body because the bump stops are built into the struts but do not change the range of movement of the strut.  And that's the catch- by pushing the strut lower relative to the body you can now get excess down travel and exceed the limits of the CVs.  Solution:  limit straps.  Not perfect but it should work fine as it's just keeping the travel to the stock limits.
