    If the springs are ok you can leave them however the choice is yours but changing them alongside new shocks could improve the ride.It all depends on your needs.Eg load carrying,towing.

    If they’ve never been changed they’ll be really tired, might as well stick new ones on while you have the chance

    Thanks, I was thinking along the same lines.

    You just look underneath a landrover to check the oil.

    Very rarely need to top up the oil on my V8 which is unusual as the original 3.5s had a reputation for burning oil a bit. Still this one was put together carefully.  As I expected, it didn't need any. Have to watch service intervals as well because the oil never changes, gets dirty, as LPG does not produce any carbon, so watching oil change times is important because oil itself still breaks down over time.  Just had a look through my invoices for bits and work in the last ten years including the purchase price.  Works out at £7000. This is not including normal servicing cost, filters etc.    189 thou on the clock. 70 thou when I purchased it.    29yrs old and ready for another 100 thou.
