as above my mate has a defender with 3" suspension lift but the arms hes fitted are the paddocks ones trailing and radius but weve realised that on both items they say suitable for 2" lift so two questions what arms does he need to buy for 3" suspension lift and second question will his arms fit my disco 1 Very Happy

put the arms on anyway, then the castor angle will only be ever so slightly out as if the vehicle has only been lifted an inch,

you can lift most defenders and disco's an inch or two without castor correction,there all different.

once you fit castor correction arms you will need to use a wide angle prop too as youll eat normal uj's.

You can get arms for either a 2" or 4" lift so your mate might as well keep what he has

Personally I really don't like castor corrected front arms, because of the prop shaft UJ angle implications.

I would fit castor corrected swivel balls or get the front axle casing re-jigged.
