Im new to this forum and 4x4...
I am currently driving an 06 plat TD4 Freelander, love the car, but a few niggles and advice from anyone in the know would be greatly appreciated.
I recently got my front tires changed, same size and same make as the originals (michelins ), the same day I got them fitted I developed a vibration which ended up undrivable, the long and the short of it was having to join the AA on the spot and Landrover Inverness changing the front O/S drive shaft.
So after this very expensive few days I developed a faint vibration which I hadnt noticed before as it is at speed and because of the snow we had up north I didnt have the Freelander over 40mph.
This vibration seems worse some days than others, its a pulsating vibration that starts to be noticed at 50mph and is worse at 60mph, then fades above 70mph.
I am of course worried im going to damage something, but the Freelander seems to be ok otherwise.
I have read alot online about if fitting new tires ALL 4 should be changed at the same time, or that the new ones should go to the back, I have also read that the bearings eitherside of the VC are prone to giving up, and then I have read that VC give up too along with IDR and rear diffs etc all of which I know is very expensive.
Bearing in mind the car is an 06 plate and has only covered 42000 miles, has anyone got any ideas what is going wrong with my Freelander? I Love the car, but Im slowly getting dissappointed and seriously considering going for FL2 this summer as they are excellent, but i would like to have the option of upgrading and not being forced into it.
Please help someone.
