  1. Front air shock: top sticks out higher (right vs. left) on 2006 L322 S/C

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    See image below. I have gotten an occasional "Suspension Fault" code, but it resets itself. Also, it seems to lean slightly to the right in front (i.e., passenger side, where the top of the front shock/strut seems to stick out more than on the driver's side). Finally, when in off-road / tall...
  2. Removing Front Damper/Air Shock Assembly - depressurize?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi - I have a 2011 RR Sport with active suspension. I'm trying to replace my front stabilizer bar links and bushings. Was able to replace the rears without too much effort, but the front assembly is giving me trouble. I can't get a socket on the top stabilizer link bolt - the access is too...
  3. Rear shock options - 94 LSE with EAS

    Range Rover Classic
    I need to replace my rear shocks. As far as I can tell I have the option of a OEM unit from somewhere like Rimmers https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-STC3704 (or a copy which is much cheaper) or a Bilstein B6 unit. Anyone any thoughts? One seem all oil the other partly gas. Looks like changing...
  4. Passenger front shock absorber noisy...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello again, the passenger front shock absorber of my Td6 is noisy : when lowering or moving up, it works by step and made a strange thud. And it's the same when I drive on road. Both shock absorbers are new (Dunlop). Any idea of what it can be? Chris.

  6. Any ideas? is the shock gone?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    :sad: Hi guys just driven 400klms on dirt, air suspension working fine and the ride feels normal, but looking at the car as it drives over the corrugations I think the shocker has gone! any ideas? The hideous rattle is from a loose mud protector on the disco brake.
  7. Shock absorbers on coil Spring P38

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi all, I last week I fitted a new pair of rear shock absorbers to my 4.6HSE. One has failed completely within several hundred km. I presume warranty will not be an issue. The shock absorbers were purchased from eBay and were surprisingly cheap ($100). I do understand that in life you get what...
  8. Need Basic Advicre Shock Removal

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi Everyone: I've decided to convert my 95 RRC from EAS to coils and I'm having trouble removing the passenger side front shock. I removed the bottom nut, but the top nut appears to just spin, although the washer under the top nut is looser (i.e., there is a gap between the top nut and the...
  9. Air Leak - Front Right Shock

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    The other day I was driving and the "Suspension Fault" warning came up, but the vehicle was driving fine. I stopped, restarted the car and it went away. Well yesterday I noticed that when going over uneven roads, the sound of compressed air escaping from my right front wheel well was present. I...
  10. Shock absorber bottom bush orientation

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Fitting some new front shocks - here it is pictured as it came in the box. Looking at the RAVE file it looks like I should rotate the metal washer at the top and bottom so the "peak" of the cone is against the rubber. Is that correct please? The diagram is not the clearest and I am not sure why...
  11. New shock absorbers recommendations

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I was looking at replacing the shock absorbers as they are 18 years old with 122k miles use. It is a 1998 2.5 Diesel Auto P38 with Air Suspension. I have found genuine ones but for over £100 each. I can get Terrafirma (all four) for £130 which is tempting but are they any good? Or any other...
  12. Shock absorber shock

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi everyone, I hope this wont seem like a stupid question but I can't seem to find an answer anywhere on the forum so far. I own a (very) late 2010 RRS Autobiogrphy model, there's barely 50.000 km on it, has been serviced regularly and so far only minor issues have come up. 2 weeks ago I started...
  13. Shock cavitation / remote reservoir option?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I am currently using terrafirma shocks and I have noticed on the last few trips that after some heavy wheeling the terrafirma's lose much of their damping. Once cooled down and sitting for a while the damping is back so I assume it is cavitation/heat causing this. Fair amount of gear inside and...
  14. 2014 L405 Shock Absorbers Recall?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I took my truck in to the service department today due to some bad rattling when going over bumps on the left side. After they verified the rattle it was taken in and noticed that there was leaking from the shock absorber. They are going to replace both to ensure they are both okay. I was then...
  15. Which OEM shock absorber to buy?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi All, I need to replace a front shock absorber on my 2009 L322 (3.6) there are a few other companies selling them. Firstly would it be a mistake to not put a LR part in and secondly has anyone had other shock OEM parts that have proved to be OK? Here is a listing from LR Direct with a few of...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    shock absorber effect with eas system my 98 range rover suspension is on air bags although i did the jumper trick to get rid off max 35 km/h message (long story of struggling with EAS repeated faults) and got EAS manual on display, i am still using the air bags but inflate them with external...
  17. 07 Rear Shock Parts?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I need to replace rear shocks in my 07. Finding a lot of confusing parts breakdowns for these assemblies. Entire OEM assemblies priced the same as a sub-assembly gas piston (approx $350)? The gas piston sub assembly non-OEM for approx $130. Has anyone replaced their rear shocks and been...
  18. 06 front air shock

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Just ordered a replacement front air shock. I am 98% sure that it is the source of the problem. (heard leak, it is the first to go down, etc) If I replace it and it does not fix the problem, what other valves, etc are there that could be the source of the front passenger shock losing air...
  19. Shock absorber lifespan?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    How long do these last under normal driving conditions? My suspension failed and on closer inspection by the dealers, the cause was determined to be one shock absorber that cracked at the top, letting out air, My vehicle has done 129 000km and one shock cost a ridiculous R14k! According to the...
  20. Shock Absorber dimensions

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    After a myriad of searches on the internet I decided to create a list of shock absorbers that could possibly fit the P38. I have attached it to this post (hopefully) for all to use. Note that this is my own take on the subject and there are several sections of this that have not been checked...
