  1. P38 track rod re-installation question

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi, So I'm in the middle of replacing all the front bushings on my 2000 P38 with 117K miles. The install went about as smoothly as you'd expect (I have this sinking feeling that the truck is probably going to drive the same as it did before I started this whole debacle once it's finally done...)...

  3. Tie rod issue

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have a 06 Range Rover HSE that has a knocking sound when I turn sharply back and forth and when I hit a bump. A mechanic said it look like the tie rods. Should they wear out by now? I have about 124k on the vehicle. One other thing, I never heard the noise until I got my brakes inspected a...

  5. Brake booster rod adjustment.

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi. I've just dismanteled my RRC-95 booster, and rinsed all valves and screens. A lots of "old fun" in there. No wonder the brakes was binding. The abs-valves was clicking without any reason. A bump in the road was enough. This was caused by dust and salt in the house under the booster. Where...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I replaced all 4 of them in DEC 2012 and the front ones are shredded already. They were Bearmark as I had read britpart are junk and stayed away from them. Is it normal for them to only last 6 months?
  7. Adjustable Panhard Rod

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    After lifting the P38 a lot with RTE springs, the body gets shifted and is not aligned over the axles. My previous offroad height from center of wheel was 20.5 inches. Now, my rear is over 23 inches and front is just under 23 inches. To correct this geometry, you need an adjustable panhard rod...

  9. Tie rod end diagnosis

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Read many threads and need to ask. While I had my rig on a lift doing some maintanence I figured I'd check ball joints and tie rods. When I grab the tire and try to wiggle it left to right there is play on both front wheels. It's not like something loose though. More like I can move the wheel...

  12. Replaced Tie Rod - Super Shaky Steering Wheel

    Range Rover Classic
    After replacing a tie rod because I had over an inch of play on the steering wheel, I now have a new problem. On the freeway, the steering is super shaky around 50-60mph. My mechanic only recommended replacing the damaged tie rod, but now I'm thinking I need all new tie rods. What are other...

  20. Worn Track Rod?

    Range Rover Classic
    While replacing my steering damper, I noticed that my track rod was loose: It did not shimmy from side to side, but it could rotate very easily around its own axis.
