    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello Folks, I recently bought a 2009 4.2L Supercharged. During hard acceleration on the highway it darts a bit from left to right and requires careful steering input to keep it going in a straight line. It feels like a front wheel drive vehicle hunting for traction in slippery conditions...

  9. Input needed: rattle-like sound on hard acceleration

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I've had this noise for close to a year, and haven't done anything about it. The only time it appears to diminish is after extensive driving, where everything is very warm. For this reason, I assumed it to be a loose fragment in the catalytic converter/loose bolt/clamp in some exhaust fitting...

  17. Arnott Gen3 air hose hard on frame

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I just installed rear Gen3 air springs today. My concern is that the top of the spring barely sits above the frame (chassis), so that where the air line enters the spring, the air line actually rubs on the frame. Is this normal? I didn't pay attention to know if the old one was the same. If it...
