Hi,

I had the coil spring conversion done on my 2002 P38 about 7 years ago and now I want to convert it back to EAS. Back then, I did not want to go the dealer for obvious reasons and I used an independent technician I found through the forum. Unfortunately, I lost his number and I would like to contact him to see if he can do the conversion for me. His name is Joe and he used to be in Farmingdale, New York. Joe did a professional job on the conversion and I would like to ask him if he can do it again. I am in Mineola (Long Island), NY. If anybody knows Joe or anybody else (independent technician or shop) who can do the conversion, please drop me a line.

He was a Land Rover Technician, used to work for a dealer. He knew P38s very well. Sorry I don't remember if he specialised only on P38s

I took mine back to bags because the ride quality was crap. It is a different car, now.

I agree with John. The ride is not the same with coils. My preference is also to keep my P38 stock. The reason I went to coil springs was a matter of circumstances at the time. Back in 2011, I was about to go overseas on a multi-year work assignment when the bags went bad to the point where I was riding on the bumper stops. The car was not driveable and I couldn't leave without doing something about it. Within the short time I had left, I researched it a bit and I found an independent Land Rover Technician who could do it for a reasonable price. I figured if the car is going to be sitting for long periods of time (I had somebody running it once every two weeks), I should spent as less as possible by putting coils on it and worry about it when I get back to the US. That was the decision I made then. So, 6 years later I am back in the US and I want to return my P38 back to the stock suspension.

By the way, thanks to DFNDTHIS. I am meeting with Chris from Rovertek this Saturday to arrange for the conversion. I hope my story helps you ECCO.

I met with Chris from Rovertek today and it turns out that he is the guys I was looking for. Apparently, I had a senior moment when I went looking on Rangerovers.net for a guy named "Joe" who did a fantastic job on my P38 years ago. I am glad that Chris is one and the same as my imaginary friend "Joe". He is a top of the line technician and knows P38's inside out.
