Hi, Michael for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

My 1999 land-rover discovery is vibrating at 60-80,had the tyres checked all good, any thoughts ?


Depending on the vibration the speed you mention is when drive shaft vibrations are evident. Check all "U" joints for wear,check slip joints for wear especially the front shaft.Check wheel alignment for castor problems and check the steering shocky ( if fitted)

Pathfinder vibration


check the "u" joints for looseness and wear especially the front drive shaft . check sliding splines . The vibration is a harmonic vibration normally associated with worn "U" joints --bent or out of balanced ---worn /seizing slip joints or being excited by a failing drive thrust bearing in the diff. ( big bearing directly behind the pinion gear that takes all the load on drive) check the magnet on the diff drain plug for metal bits.

Slack at rear driveshaft slip yoke and transfer case with driveline vibration


replace the drive shaft as the splines will be worn out especially if on the front shaft. Check u-joints for wear as they work at max angle and are prone to early failure If the front has sagged (weak springs) the angle gets worse.

Check your spindles, especially the shafts in the spindles. If one of them is bent, it'll make the blades vibrate as they spin. You can find replacement shafts and spindles at Partsbuggy.com.

I would next check the condition of the engine, transmission and transfer case mounts. The mounts all have rubber inserts in them to absorb vibration and if the rubber starts to deteriorate or drycrack it can cause a vibration, especially under load.
