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 told that there was a recall and Land Rover is replacing the existing shock absorbers with a better version. Anyone have any issues with their suspension so far?

Yeah, this recall dates back to August 2014 if am not wrong. Search on the L494 for suspension clunk.

I have to wait close to 2 weeks for the parts to be shipped from the UK to New Zealand. So hopefully it's fixed properly the first time.

After getting the truck back late last week with the dealer replacing both front shock absorbers the rattle is completely gone. It seems to be riding very smooth again. I am pleased with the results.

I was told that my left shock absorber was completely bad and lost all lubricant from inside of it.

Hi has anyone got a link to the recall document pertaining to this, the wife has an australian delivered MY14.5 vogue, and it has the loose/rattle feeling coming through the steering wheel on certain type of roads especially going over expansion joints.

Thanks
