Calling all Defender owners: STOP THAT CLUNKING!

Calling all Defender drivers, do you have a nasty clunk when pulling off?
Stop that CLUNK!

THE PROBLEM SHOWN BELOW

LOF Solution shown above!

We have found a lot of Defender drivers complain about the awful back-lash in their drive train, leading to clunks and clangs when setting off!

We thought we could explain common areas that are easily fixed, which we have solutions for!

1. Rear Drive flanges on the axle, these are common, they wear the spline, not lubricated and end up causing total loss of drive if left too long (shown top right) The solution was easy, resort back to older designs and eliminate the spline using a solid one piece shaft as shown in the bottom right photo! Real easy job to do, wheels off, undo 5x 17mm head drive flange bolts, slide it out, slide the new one in! (Tools needed: Jack, wheel brace, 17mm socket, RTV Silicone)
LOF single piece half shafts here >

We hope this has been helpful! In addition here is some other parts that can cause a clunk:

1. The Front and rear differential (most common for them to have a lot of backlash on TDCI vehicles
2. Front drive flanges (same principal, best to change like for like with plenty of EP2 grease!)
3. Propshaft UJ’s, easy to check by twisting by hand, we always suggest refreshing the whole pro-shaft rather than rebuilding as it is cheap and easier!
