LeJeun3, when you change a Range Rover from balloon shocks to coil springs what effects does it have on the ride??


When properly done you get a smooth ride like on a Hillux!

But when done wrongly you get the most unbalanced car you can ever drive.

How is it done wrong (and right)?

This link has the correct coil suspension and EAS reflash

This link has the correct coil suspensions and EAS re flash module.



Wrong:


Involves using springs from a pathfinder + the shock absorbers from a regular air suspension

Apart from your dashboard remaining illuminated, what does the emboldened do to your car?

Let explain it this way....

The shock absorbers that came with the air suspension aren't stiff enough neither are the springs. The car is bouncy and inbalanced, this is simply because since the VDM require information from the RLM to function, so imagine the VDM expecting the rear left corner valve to increase the pressure in the rear right air suspension to cushion a road impact, however the RLM doesn't have such info.


Look at the pictures, you would have a clear picture of why the fabricated coil spring system will not provide adequate dampening effect...!

In other words, it has a low spring rate.
Na to put Humvee own or leaf springs. grin

CEL illuminated?? Have a p2451-00 code you just might have a leak in the fuel line or have a bad DTML pump.

Re: T's Garage (landrover And Cars) by LeJeun3: 7:58pm On Aug 04




- Steering control: fixed
- Suspension: fixed
- Dynamic Response: still in progress
- Rain Sensor: module fault
- Remote: still in progress
- Tire pressure sensor: fixed

Current Fault: c1a00-54 DTC


My diagnosis points towards 'locked bars' condition means that pump flow is directed through the valve block and returns to the reservoir. Both DCV's close, trapping the fluid in the actuators. The fluid can flow from one actuator to the other via the valve block. The stabilizer bars will perform similar to a conventional stabilizer bar, resisting roll but still allowing suspension articulation.
The 'reduced operation' condition means that the system can still operate, but one of the input signals is not being received and so the system performance is not optimum.



Re: T's Garage (landrover And Cars) by LeJeun3: 8:05pm On Aug 04


This high pressure pump is what keeps the d dynamic response system at optimum. However it's failure which isn't ever total failure would always read as a module failure as it inhibits the dynamic response system for performing roll and anti-roll activities.

Boss I really need advice,I'm currently caught in between buying the Toyota Venza 2014 or the 2007 Range Rover with 2012 body kit,considering every factor there is to consider,which do you feel is a better buy and will give me the best performance?

Kindly buy your venza in peace. Range rover is good no doubt but small issues might make you spend more money and waste more time. The reason is.

(1)There are few Range rover technicians, you might drive a long distance to get a good one...even at that, they might not be ready to attend to you. their Ako and shakara is always too much.

(2) If you value your time, Please go for a venza else, you can buy a Range rover.

(3) I drive a Range rover too and its in a good shape but i m getting a Toyota Prado next, i will NEVER buy any RANGE ROVER again.

Keep wondering why an LR4 with less than 50K on the clock would have worn the front brake disc beyond the limit....

Most likely clocked and probably before it was imported into Nigeria.

This was my ultimate answer after checking all givens.....

Next question would be why would Cocharis use such as owner claimed to service his car in Cocharis (can't refute it much as car has had only 2 owners, I know both owners. Started working for current owner a year ago and met the car with worn and warped brake discs)

Must be, @ N60k fairly good price cos the two front sloted 344mm brake disc+pad(redStuff) cost £334.

I bought a Bosch brake pads for my car recently and i can tell you there is a hughe difference. Especially when applying brakes. Feels much lighter compared to those substandard ones angry
