  1. Steering Damper - On-Road use, Standard or Terrafirma?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hello folks, I belive that my steering damper is worn out. There are lots of replacements to choose from, the majority being based on the original. However, for the same price as the standard type I can get one from terrafirma with a bigger tube and greater oil capacity. This sounds great for...
  2. Mass damper "retaining wire"

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I'm gonna regret asking this, I'm sure, but why do mass dampers on the final drive units have a wire going from one side to the other?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi GuysI'm new to this forum and need some help.The right rear top shock mount of my 03 TD6 has disintegrated.

  7. '93 LWB steering is sluggish, is steering damper necessary?

    Range Rover Classic
    My '93 LWB sat for about 2 months while I "fixed" the corroded rear diff cover and rotted exhaust, but now the steering is excessively "heavy"-feeling and sluggish; I need to turn the wheel BACK from a turn rather than let it slip thru my hands like before. PS fluid is up, belt is good, no...

  10. How do I remove seized top bolts on rear suspension damper

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Trying to change the rear dampers and having problems undoing the top mounting bolts. No sign of wanting to shift when leaning on the breaker bar. Some corrosion on the bolt heads so standard hex socket (not 12 point) fit isn't the best. Fit is OK ish but with 80 ft/lb torque on the bolts...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Well after 8 months with a new Britpart damper it's now leaking oil. Britcrap indeed. No offense to our brethren overseas. Given the limited choices for the P38 I may try a Terrafirma one next.
