    Hard suspension 2018 Discovery Diesel

    Bock lives under 500 foot elevation hence not a elevation pressure altitude issue. Pay the ripoff prices and have Nitrogen installed but first have the tyres deflated then filled a couple times to purge out most of what's left being 22% oxygen along with mixed gasses and moisture which should...

    Hard suspension 2018 Discovery Diesel

    Correction needed Brock, your a woman or lady and not a girl respectifully speaking. I'm surprised there was a spring conversion replacement available vs dealing with airbags unless airbags were an option and coil springs as standard equipment? Considering diesel engines weigh more than gas...

    The history of the Land Rover Discovery

    My opinion, after being roped into replacing heads on a "as-is" not running auctioned LR4 a friend had to have purchased dirt cheap. Once up and running he knows i'll never touch a 5.0 again. All said and done this friend later offered me a direct swap for my 95 Disco. Nope not as a free gift...

    Genuine New Front Crossover Pipe Defects

    With Tata stating they turned around their investment now owning JLR their main company investment. Funny read Ratan being "humilated by Ford". Also the remark "Ford about bankrupt", that there was another comeback stab at Ford. Back in 03 I replaced the manual antenna for the 95 Disco, LR...

    Driver's Ergonomics

    Not a clue about smaller wheels. Had to ask, manual or power steering something to consider going smaller diameter? No not a small welded chrome chain wheel like the Low Riders LOL. Up down thigh clerance or front to back belly clearance? Long legs another one to consider hence the added...

    Driver's Ergonomics

    I have a "rather large friend" (too round also tall) with seating issues in several of his vehicles. Not with any LR products but older BMW's and GM SUV's i've used 3/8" tick x 2 1/4" wide cold rolled steel strips, drilled holes matching the floorboard to secure strips. Once seating position...

    This a solid rear axle vehicle, and if so there is a panhard bar that secures the rear diff (axle) from shifing left and right mounted to the frame, oops I mean body?

    Just one example of "Top Hat" liners securing the liner never fearing of failed head gaskets along with liner slip issues.

    Leaking in car ruined my interior, and fried my electrical!!!

    I'd be giving your atorney a call and heads up about the leaking issue and hope to get a third failure to fix then apply the Lemon Law on it. My LR while waiting for an engine replacement of five weeks sat in a lot facing downhill along with the driver's sunroof open in the rain. I stopped by a...

    Quick Compressor Replacement Question

    LR should of made a note stating preventive maintence to replace filters by 4 or 5 years time or X amount of miles before having a total failure issue at 10 years then it was too late. I bet by the 4-5 year time period it was due to be replaced not your 10 with total failure time. Hell might as...
