    Upper control arm prices

    Do you have a ball joint separator that you'd recommend? I bought the harbor freight one but it was too small, ended up doing my tie rods with a pickle fork which absolutely destroyed the old joint's boots. Plus I don't really care for the impacts on the knuckle, so would prefer to use a...

    Upper control arm prices

    I've resigned myself to the fact that any repair that requires going to the shop, the bill will be in the $1500 range... I'm trying to do more and more myself...

    Upper control arm prices

    A friend in Seattle was just quoted $2100 for lower arms, plus $270 for the alignment, at the dealer, for context. An absolute ripoff if you ask me.

    2012 LR4 Reluctant to lower from off-road suspension mode

    It's part VUB504700, for Hitachi only. You can get it from LR: Atlantic British have one too: I wish I'd gone this route, as...

    2012 LR4 Reluctant to lower from off-road suspension mode

    Changing the dryer, if you have a Hitachi compressor, is straight forward. Hardest part will be disconnecting the hoses from the back side of the compressor (intake and exhaust hoses), and re-installing the compressor bracket when you reassemble due to a hard to reach bolt that need to be...

    2012 LR4 Reluctant to lower from off-road suspension mode

    Does the front lower ok, and it's just the rear that stays up in the air? If so, wouldn't that rule out the exhaust solenoid valve? One thing to note, given the age of your LR4 the desiccant might have turned to powder and started traveling the air lines and gunked up your valve blocks. I...

    TPMS settings with IID tool

    The car auto-detects the TMPS sensors, there's no programming required. The sensors themselves have a limited lifespan, so it's possible they are due for replacement. There are two different frequencies used, though, 315MHz on older vehicles, and 433MHz on newer. My 2012 uses 315MHz, I don't...

    Happy Thanksgiving

    I agree wholeheartedly! This site has made ownership much more satisfying.

    Misfiring Cyl 2/4/6 ?? 2015 LR4

    I feel you'd be well served getting an IID tool, so you can not just pull codes, but data log sensors live. It would make things more data driven rather than throwing parts at it and hoping they do the trick.

    Starting issue

    For science, can you measure voltages like you did before to have a "good" baseline?

    LR4 market question

    I don't see that here in Portland, I think two things work against the v8: age, and uncertainty about timing chains.

    Wire Loom Cover

    not helpful to you here, but I'm surprised your HSE didn't come with heated seats - ours did, and is not a Lux but does have the locking diff/etc.

    CTEK battery maintainer cable routing?

    Did you mount the plug to anything, or is it just a pigtail and the environmental boot also serves as shock protection as it bounces around?

    CTEK battery maintainer cable routing?

    I want something similar, but to plug in my air compressor when I air back up. My current plan is an Anderson plug in the grille, with a cover for when it's not in use.

    Misfiring Cyl 2/4/6 ?? 2015 LR4

    Thinking on this more, can we confirm that we're all using the same cylinder numbering? The SCV6 numbers one bank 1,2,3, and the other 4,5,6. It would make more sense if one bank was misfiring, so when you say 2-4-6 are misfiring, are those numbers referring to just one bank or really across...

    do you know if the engine was overheated previously?

    Starting issue

    Ideally you'd check the voltage at the battery posts before turning the car on first thing in the morning. The iidtool will tell you what the computers see, which is a good data point, and comparing to a measurement directly at the battery posts will tell you if you're having resistance at the...

    Starting issue

    Does it do it mostly on the first start of the day? Might be with checking voltage at the battery terminals while someone else starts it. I would suspect the battery at first glance. Second in line would be the starter solenoid.

    Tie Rods - LR010667 vs. LR010668

    I can confirm that LR010667 is indeed the correct kit for both sides of the LR4 (at least my 2012). Hardest part of the job was getting the ball joints out of the steering knuckle.

    power steering fluid in bellows - problem?

    I'm replacing the tie rods (104k miles) - took it in for an alignment and the shop said they needed replacing. Decided to give it a go myself, and realized why they called for replacement: the lock not for the ball joint was seized (enough that I snapped my channel locks trying to loosen it -...

    Misfiring Cyl 2/4/6 ?? 2015 LR4

    Is there a distributor for the Gap diagnostics iidtool in your area? Definitely worth the price if you plan on keeping your LR4.

    Guidance for dual battery install

    a company out of Australia, Traxide, make kits. They require a little modification to work in US-spec cars due to our V8 configuration taking up more under-hood space, but folks here have made them work. It's on my list, eventually.
