Just had a really good deal with Callum at Alive on some Eibach Comfort springs and B6 shocks.
Hope to get them fitted in the near future & will report my findings.
Well worth giving them a ring if this is something you are looking for.

i would be interested in knowing how far these drop the height of the defender..Alive quote an "inch and a bit"so your experience would be helpfull as i guess from their fudging its more like 2 inches...I would like to keep the same height on my truck but the comfort springs sound good from a ride point of view .....so i think alive are missing a trick by not producing a same height set up for those of us who didnt buy a defender to take a corner at speed!i did think of using spacers to restore the height as i think some have done but wonder how that would effect the ride (and defeat the purpose)and need for longer shocks!

I completely agree, it seems only twisted sell standard height comfort springs but they only sell it as their whole package. I asked twisted if they would sell just their comfort springs alone but they said no you can only buy the complete package which is 2k :'( I think Alive are missing a trick as they would massively undercut twisted and have the benefits of buying the package in parts rather than forking out a massive 2k lump on the whole lot.

If you want a better ride in your Defender, try fitting adjustable dampers.
l fitted some Terrafirma 4 way adjustable dampers and in the softest setting the ride is significantly better (on my 110 TD5)

The springs are standard spec. The Defender rides better on all surfaces.


See my previous post here.

The ride is significantly improved by using standard springs with the Terrafirma 4 way adjustable dampers. The ride height is unaffected and the Terrafirma adjustable dampers are only 60 each.
