    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    So, its a 1997 AA Yellow 4.6 HSE Vitesse. I am very attached to this vehicle, and have been keeping it in the best running condition I can. However, the front axle has been making noises similar to the old army truck axles where the ring and pinion don't mesh properly. The difference is, If I...

  3. Leaky Rear Axle - Which seals need replacing?

    Range Rover Classic
    After a lovely day at Cars and Coffee, my rover decided it didn't like all that oil in the rear axle and spit some of it out the passenger side onto my wheel. I have read that this issue typically starts with a blocked breather. I crawled under the truck and did not see anything blocking the...
  4. 2018 SVR - weird locking axle sensation while reversing

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I’m hoping the collective brainpower and experience on the board can help me determine what is causing an occasional issue with my 2018 SVR. About a month ago, I was pulling out of my garage (while access mode was engaged) and my SVR came to a slow halt as if my rear tires nudged up to...

  7. Broken axle

    Range Rover Classic
    So I broke the right rear axle on my classic last week, and seem to be having a hard time finding a replacement 10 spline. A little backstory; it is a 94 LWB with ABS and TC, so as best I can tell it should be 24 spline, but in the rear it has a 10 spline set up, so I am guessing something went...

    I have a punctured rubber boot at the wheel on the rear axle on my AJV8 2006 that needs to be replaced.

  10. 82 front stub axle

    Range Rover Classic
    I've got the slotted stub axle that doesn't seem to be available any more. I've tried ordering two replacement flat types, but neither seem to fit onto the CV joint properly. Any thoughts on modifying the stub axle from imperial to metric would be much appreciated. It's driving me nuts!

    Range Rover Classic
    Recently Broke the Ring Gear on my 1995 County LWB which put a hole in the axle housing. Haven't had any luck tracking down a 95 RRC rear axle assembly near me but have found a few Discovery ones. Does anyone know if they will bolt up to the Range Rover mounts? The Discovery is a 1996 series 1...

    General Chatter
    Though this is a RR forum, I think this is of interest for those who off-road and want a solid front axle in a new rig. Looks like Jeep may be the last option now in terms of new rigs. https://jalopnik.com/what-it-means-for-off-roaders-now-that-the-mercedes-g-c-1821783691 At the end of the...

    Range Rover Classic
    Hello everyone, (first post) I am rebuilding the front axle of my 92 RRC (without ABS brakes, with vented rotors, with CV joint suffix "B"). Vin # ending in 1240NA. I'm told that a '92 without ABS brakes is somewhat of an anomaly. When dis-assembled, there was a "sleeve" bearing/bushing that...
