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,

faulty shocks/struts.

  1. ## ### ALSO CHECK THE POWER STEERING BOX LASH - ALSO BAD

    RUBBERS ON PANHARD ROD LINKS AND A FAILED STEERING SHOCK

    ABSORBER

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.
