Maybe the Covid shutdown closed his business down...

Sad!

Gentlemen

I am running a Christmas special on most protective parts. I have limited stock of bash plates (for all Y60 and Y61 models), transfer case skid-plates and diff guards, and can make up a couple of sets of some models of rock sliders within a week or so of order.

I also have three sets of dropboxes available. These have been professionally welded and treated (electro-galvanised, E-coated and then powder coated).

I am unfortunately not offering them at reduced prices but I do know that the next batch will be more expensive as my supplier has warned me of price increases.

The reason is that I am about to need some serious dough to cover unforeseen medical bills.

Thanks for your understanding.

Malcolm, a dropbbox is a bracket which lowers the mounting position of the front radius arms down below the chassis.

This is an alternative method to correct the caster reduction caused by a suspension lift which has several advantages over correction bushes and special redius arms in terms of vehicle handling.

Of course there are disadvantages too, but these are purely that they are more expensive than bushes (althiugh cheaper than new radius arms) and that that they may bump or hang up on obstacles.
