rover 600 rear springs should give 3 inch of lift

merc 190 front springs should give 3 inch on the front too but I know a guy who did this with 190 diesel spring and had to cut 1 ring off so the suspension would move at all

Get a set of Grand Vitara springs, they go straight on, have about the same compression but are approx. 1.5" longer and will give you 1.5" lift.

As for the rear shocks, get some extended shocks from PARASOURCEUK on eBay.. they are good Very Happy and only £40 and they are for lifts from 2-6inches!! But you will need to fit 1.5" front stut spacers if you fit the GV springs.... or you could keep the standfard rear shocks and use some 2" spacers that screw on the top..

Coincidentally i have a pair of the 2" rear strut spacers for sale.... PM me Very Happy

Christian.
