I guess Oily bits is the closest section for this, Has anyone here had a P38 (or even better a Disco 2) on a 2 post lift, and if so where did you put the pads to lift it on please?. Having checked Rave, it says use a 4 post lift though doesn't explain why for both models. Having tried it, it seems there is a lack of suitable lifting points may be part of the reason, plus causing potential problems with the EAS system if the suspension is completely unsupported seems to be another suggested issue looking elsewhere.

It is possible to lift using the factory jacking points (the radius arms) but far from ideal and certainly not a reassuring sight either. The only other photos of locations I've seen appear to be from a NAS spec vehicle (which seems to be slightly different to what I'm seeing) and looks like its being done on the ends of the sills as far as we can tell?

I put mine on my 2 post fairly regularly, I use the chassis, at the front just where it starts to curve up and in to the engine bay, and at the rear just by the radius arm mount, the key is to get the fore and aft weight distribution correct which depends on arm length etc. but is ideally 50/50. Because the chassis is wider set than a defender it is actually pretty stable. I sometimes have an issue for some reason with the RH rear airbag but generally its fine, yes they hang down but usually they're fine.

^^^^^^^

As above, had Disco 2 and P38 online lifted on chassis as above.

Never an issue with the air suspension hanging down.

The axles should be restrained by the shocks, as they would be on full articulation over rough ground, so there shouldn't be any suspension issues.

Lift it on the chassis..

Just make sure it is evenly loaded.

Cheers all. I suspect the comments I'd seen elsewhere might have been bags that rarely got fully extended failed in some way, as said the shocks should limit travel anyway there.

It may be complicated by the side steps installed on mine, but we seemed to be struggling to find suitable points on the chassis that weren't blocked in some way or other.

Sorry I don't have a lift but I have supported both the P38 and D2 on the frame (chassis) rails with no issues

Hello, have been using a two post lift. Supported on the chassis at front and special angled supports for rear for trailing arms. Also have sidesteps no problem at all.

The worry is the height sensors moving outside their usual range of travel causing the track to pick up debris and start causing spurious signals. If you regularly have it on full articulation off road then either they'll be no issue or you've seen it all before.
