    Reading some euro forums and apparently the rear shocks from the Landrover Discovery 2 are interchangeable with the rear T3 Syncro shocks and substantially cheaper.
    Has anyone tried this?

    Looked at this a while back after my new OMEs failed, had to borrow some old shocks off Hamish as a temporary fix.

    Here is a list of Discovery 2 shock lengths https://www.aulro.com/afvb/discovery-2-a/212310-discovery-2-front-rear-shock-length-list.html

    They list a different OME shock(standard length) but the OME NS - 60026 is 593mm - 368mm(longer travel for the discovery).

    As a reference OME N37 for Syncro 591mm - 366mm

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/LAND-RO...718017&hash=item281bb9f844:g:drsAAOSwXeJXe2ol 595mm - 370mm

    Ok disco 2 shocks fitted! The pivot sleeves were about 1mm too long so I ground them down to fit. the eyes are also much larger so the fillet weld on the lower swing arm mount needs to be ground down too. $190 delivered!
