The Steering wheel on my 95 Rover classic vibrates violently when the left tire hits a bump over 50 mph what could this be?
Loose steering linkage, loose lower control arm bushings/struts,
- ## ### ALSO CHECK THE POWER STEERING BOX LASH - ALSO BAD
RUBBERS ON PANHARD ROD LINKS AND A FAILED STEERING SHOCK
Most likely to be loose swivel bearings.
Almost all Classic Range Rover steering shimmies can be traced
back to loose swivel bearing preloads.
I've owned a 1988 RRC and a 1994 RRC LWB. I had the same
shimmying at highway speed after hitting a bump. I replaced the OE
Steering Dampener shock with a Bilstein and the problem was
instantly solved. Prior to doing this the dealership wanted $5000
to fix this problem and their list of recommended fixes did not
even include the steering dampener. RR dealers don't fix cars...
they sell them.
