Question about 2002 Land Rover Freelander

2 Answers

My Land Rover has really bad vibration starting out . It goes away at about 35 - 40 MPH . Then from 55 - 60 MPH the vibration comes back . AT 70MPH it is fine . Then When I brake the vibration is very bad ( Feels like it wants to leave the road . ) I just had replaced the tires (ALL 4) . It made little change .

    Would rotors cause vibration at a slow speed? Parts and repair costs are expensive for my Land rover . I would appreciate some test I could do to confirm my problem before I go buying parts . Thank You .

You most likely have bad rotors. Have have you checked your brake pads and rotors? The replacement of rotors and new pads will most likely fix ya. Check both sides in the front. Also check for loose ball joints etc Thanks Gary

    Hey,
    you should be able to have them checked by a professional and for free. There is little cost to verify the fact that the rotors are shot.
    for visuals - remove one wheel - look closely at the rotor - is it scraping as you spin it? Are the disk brakes rubbing and scraping? It is also necessary that while you have the vehicle up and the wheel off you check for tightness the ball joint and also your tie rod ends. While there also check the wheel bearings. I am not sure who installed your tires but they should check these things as professionals.
    I wish you the best on this but these things all are combined to make the front end run true. I would take it to a professional I can trust and that you are comfortable with and have them give you an inspection and diagnoses of each part on each side. Left hand brake pad - rotor - ball joint - wheel bearing -tie rod end - sway bar. Then right side.

    Best of luck.
    Gary

Did you have the tires spin balanced? If they are okay, have the rotors checked. You could also have a CV joint going bad. Depending on how hard you press the gas pedal, you will get more vibration.

    Yes they were spin balanced . This is a 4wheel drive . I made sure all the tires are the same tread , make etc. The vibration really shakes the car bad . It does go away at certain speeds . Then when I brake it comes back . I let off the brake and it makes no difference until the LR slows down to a speed of about 40 mph . Is there a way to pinpoint the vibration ?.

If it were the prop, you have vibration at high speeds/out of balance. Look at the back of both wheels. If one has oil around where the rearend meets the backing plate, bad axle bearings.
