  1. '07 SC Front Air Bag/Shock Absorber Problem

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I purchased brand new Air bag/Struts assembled from Island 4x4 but the black "damper" is not installed on the new set and there does not seem to be a way to get it off the old one's to install onto the new ones. Do I have to purchase a new damper/upper insulator as they call it? According to the...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello again, the passenger front shock absorber of my Td6 is noisy : when lowering or moving up, it works by step and made a strange thud. And it's the same when I drive on road. Both shock absorbers are new (Dunlop). Any idea of what it can be? Chris.
  3. Shock absorber bottom bush orientation

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Fitting some new front shocks - here it is pictured as it came in the box. Looking at the RAVE file it looks like I should rotate the metal washer at the top and bottom so the "peak" of the cone is against the rubber. Is that correct please? The diagram is not the clearest and I am not sure why...

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi everyone, I hope this wont seem like a stupid question but I can't seem to find an answer anywhere on the forum so far. I own a (very) late 2010 RRS Autobiogrphy model, there's barely 50.000 km on it, has been serviced regularly and so far only minor issues have come up. 2 weeks ago I started...

  7. Shock absorber lifespan?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    How long do these last under normal driving conditions? My suspension failed and on closer inspection by the dealers, the cause was determined to be one shock absorber that cracked at the top, letting out air, My vehicle has done 129 000km and one shock cost a ridiculous R14k! According to the...
  8. Shock Absorber dimensions

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    After a myriad of searches on the internet I decided to create a list of shock absorbers that could possibly fit the P38. I have attached it to this post (hopefully) for all to use. Note that this is my own take on the subject and there are several sections of this that have not been checked...
