    Suspension and brake sensitivity

    I have had a 2008 RR HSE Sport for about a year now.

    I have driven all kinds of cars and I am comfortable driving any kind car. Getting used to the sensitivity on a car isn't a problem for me.

    I have still not mastered the brakes on this range rover and also any bump, crack, smallest of pot holes i hit makes the ride feel like a roller coaster.

    I have also driven my friends RR. Same exact car. and not a problem. the car drove as smooth as ever.

    So does anyone have an idea why my range rover feels like a roller coaster and why the brakes are so jerky,

    *car is in good condition, brakes aren't making noise, car isn't making any unusual noise either.

    The first place to look are the shock absorbers - if they are worn they can cause some unusual handling and braking issues - so get them checked.

    What tires do you have and what does he have? Are the tire pressures the same?

    Hi, had a similar issue.. Resolved. I threw in a pair of Arnotts on the front+stabilizer bar bushings all around+ links all around+ good alignment.. While airbags were absolutely fine, shock absorbers were not.. I think you can replace shocks only but Arnotts were $370 a piece with lifetime warranty so I figured do the whole thing.. While just a shock might cost less, time to reassemble the whole thing will add up to the project cost.
