We have a couple of Freelander vans on the fleet and while one of them was on the ramp today I could not help but notice the really dinky rear hubs. They look like perfect alternatives to the Sierra/haynes ones. They have the lower pivot points along with the arms already on the which are adjustable, if a bracket was made where the strut bolts on to accommodate a top wishbone the job would be a goodun 8-) The diff assembly which is all ali is also an easily mounted job. Will post up some more picks but meantime here are some of the rear uprights. The forward link road could be done away with as per roadster wishbone set up.

Definitely looks interesting Bob, how does that compare weight wise?

I would have thought it would be lighter Bruce, it does not have a separate bearing housing and there is no excessive material around it. A mate of mine breaks landrovers so I might ask him for a set and have a play with them. The two lower arms could be shortened and incorporated into the haynes design lower wishbone , one of the arms has an adjuster already built in for toe adjustment.

Th freelancer diff is already being used in some cases so could be possible to add these uprights and driveshafts for a complete rear end?!!?

Just done a bit of research and it seems the hubs run the same pcd as the Mazda wheels I have for my build. I will dig deeper :)
