  1. Extreme Vibration / Steering Shimmy under braking

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello, I've recently (April) purchased a 2010 Range Rover Sport HSE (Facelift) 3.6 TDV8 which is a brilliant car but has had the dreaded shimmy / vibration under braking since I got it. I've done a reasonable amount of remedial work myself & other garages and I've still got the problem so I'm...
  2. Steering wheel shimmy when turning 45 degree L/R and 0-10mph

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    While maneuvering to park or backing up at slow speeds, I get a shimmy in the steering wheel. If I turn the wheel all the way as far as it will go, the shimmy stops. Percentage wise, I'd say the shimmy occurs from about 60 to 80% of full turn in either direction. It also will do this if I'm...
  3. trying to like my p38 but.....

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I bought a 2000 Range Rover 4.6 Rhino Edition about a year ago. I've had Jeeps for over 20 years and had seen some Land Rovers on trails and was always impressed with them. So, I figured I'd give one a try. My most concerning problem right now is a Very Bad front wheel shimmy at freeway...
  4. 2008 Range Rover HSE wheel shimmy

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi, I have a 2008 Range Rover HSE with 125k miles on it, and randomly on the highway the steering wheel will shake & shudder at 70+mph. It only happens when I hit a big bump, and will stop immedietaly if if I tap the brake. It's in the drivers right front wheel area. I'm guessing a bushing...
  5. Front end shimmy

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I get a really bad shimmy and vibration in the front end especially when I drive over a pothole or expansion joint at a speed around 60 mph. New steering damper and shocks are in good shape(around 20k miles). Couldn't see any obvious steering linkage or ball joint wear after a quick inspection...
  6. Steering shimmy when braking at 50+ mph

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I looked through the forum for some answers, and found some posts on this, but I could not find an answer, so sorry if I missed it somewhere. I have a 2008 RRSC with 62,000. Love the truck. For some time now I have a shimmy when braking at higher speeds. I have had the rims checked for any...
  7. Engine Shimmy at Idle

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I have a 2013 RRSC. In the last week, I have noticed that when the car idles, the engine periodically runs rough for a second or two and then resumes normal idle. Happens three or four times when stopped long enough for a stop light. The idle change is not reflected in the tach. Passengers...
  8. 2004 L322 shimmy after air strut replacement

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I just replaced my driver side air strut with one from arnott. We now have a shimmy at highway speeds and braking. The shimmy while braking was there before, presumably because we need new rotors. The highway shimmy developed after installing the strut. I am thinking I should get it aligned...
  9. TSB for steering shimmy, all together loose feeling?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I tried to search for this specific TSB but only came up with TSBs for 2010+ and for wheel and tire balancing. Mine is an '08, built 06/08, that has a really bad steering shimmy. Feels like the front end is disconnected, hard to control at high speeds. I'm bringing it in to the dealer and just...
