2006-2009 Range Rover MkIII / L322
Hello everyone. First off I'd like to thank this forum for all the posts about changing out the front air strut on my 2007 4.4 HSE Full Size that I bought a couple of months ago. A few weeks ago I ran into a rough road and developed a prominent rattle in my front end drivers side wheel well. So, after a thorough search, I isolated it to the strut on the drivers side and bought a cheap Ebay strut/airspring combo for $171.00 that turns out was made in China. This morning I changed it out and the defective strut that apparently broke and was rattling was an Arnott Remanufactured strut that had a date of 2014 on it. I thought those were the good ones? It couldn't even hold up to a few miles of rough road without breaking down. Sorry, so not impressed!!! The changeout went well (thanks to this forum and RSW Solutions videos) and this strut combo seems awesome! It looks very well made and was packaged very professionally. I guess time will tell, and I'll keep you informed if this one doesn't last either. If not, I won't replace it with an Arnott one though. I'll search and find a different brand. Thanks again for all the helpful posts. Here's a picture of the literature that came with the new strut/airspring combo.
