Just realised it’s been a long while since I updated this thread…
I bought a brand new transfer box from Duckworths Land Rover and fitted that which completely cured the bearing whine.
Since then we’ve had a few months of trouble free service. I noticed that the ride from the rear was slightly harsh so I ordered new rear shock absorbers. When parked for a few days the rear would drop slightly too so I thought I’d change the rear air bags whilst doing the shocks.
On Monday I had the wheels refurbished to make them silver as I’d finally had enough of looking at the black wheels. Whilst the wheels were off I decided I’d replace the rear shock absorbers and air bags. Whilst the rear was jacked up, I heard a pop from the front followed by a loud hiss and you could see the car deflating so I’ve had to order new front shock absorbers and bags from Island 4x4.
Seeing as it’ll be on new shocks all around and new tyres all around by the end of tomorrow it should hopefully drive really well!
The tyres I’ve fitted are the Pirelli Scorpion Zero All Seaons. They are LR homologated and have the PNCS (Pirelli Noise Cancellation System) in them. On my Dads L322 they made a huge difference to the road noise so hopefully they’ll do the same on mine!
And here’s a before and after showing how it arrived in January and how it looks now :) It looks like a different car.
Hopefully the new parts will arrive tomorrow and then we can have her back on the road for the weekend.
