    Rigs and coffee was a good little meet up for the Greenville Land Rover Club! Didn’t stay to long due to the cold weather and the low turnout for the event. Adam and I decided to go climb at the rock gym instead of sticking around. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Finally got a maintenance day in yesterday and technically this morning as well. I still have a bit more to do on my list but was cut short due to rain. I started off yesterday by doing the rocker panel gasket and an oil change. I quickly learned that the rocker panel oil plugs were a thing...

    Trip Report - Overnight GA What better way to start off a camp trip then with 2 big “L”’s. Yep…that’s me. I kicked off the morning by trying to wrap my hood. Turns out the wrap I bought wasn’t much of a wrap and more of just a decal. As I tried to stretch the “wrap” to fit the hood it ended up...

    Heading off on another adventure tomorrow. Hoping to get some work done on the rover before hand. I received the new transmission mount today and I also got in the matte vinyl wrap for the hood. Stay tuned for an update in the coming days! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Trip Report - Dill Falls After having 2 negative Rover experiences out in the Dill Falls area (where the Range Rover died & where my oil pressure sensor went out on the discovery), I wanted to make a redemption run. I had Rob with his Lr3 join as well as Adam with his Lr4 (which joined my horse...

    Met up with a fellow Rover enthusiast today and did some cruising around through horse pasture road this afternoon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ended up being the hub. The lock nut spun off and allowed the nut that fastened to the bearings came loose. Took everything apart and inspected the bearings and seating areas to make sure nothing was damaged. Did some research on the proper way to fasten up the hub to make sure it didn’t happen...

    I didn’t check I know I used the 2 existing shims on the top side and 1 washer on the bottom. Everything torqued up and ran great until recent. Earlier this year when I did it I was in a rush and didn’t get to really break it down as much as I wanted to, I was in a side lot with no garage...

    Turns out it’s the swivel joint on the driver’s side again. Got the rover on stands this morning and there is play in the wheel again. Pulled the wheel off and the hub, nothing out of order. Friday I’ll break it down all the way to the swivel ball and check the preloads and see if there is still...

    Though the Discovery feels light years better with the new driveshaft it did no fix the issue. I will be getting the rover up on stands tomorrow since it finally stopped raining here to check around and see what’s going on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Those will be next on my list to check. It’s coming from the back of the truck, and I don’t feel it much in the steering wheel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The whole truck shakes at 45-60mph. Definitely in the drive train. Rotors are not warped, both cv joints have been replaced, swat bars and tie rod ends all look good, a frame ball joint is good, all u joints look good. No shake until I backed out of my drive way and the cv jt went, after...

    I’ve heard nothing but good things about doing the swap. I was hoping to push it off until next year but decided now was the time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Rubber coupling replacement didn’t go so well, so instead I ordered a new drive shaft with the u joint to replace it. Hopefully this solves my shake issue. Below is a pick if the rubber bushing and the flex joint. The flex joint was definitely torn up and the bushing was completely shot. While...

    New cv joint and wheel bearings installed on the passenger side. New rubber coupling jt for the rear shaft on its way. Also ordered a rear pinion seal since it’s leaking diff fluid. Rover is driving way better now but still has an odd shake, hoping the coupling will fix that, inspected the...

    Looks like I will be doing the cv joint and wheel bearings on the passenger side this weekend. Rover is shaking similar to the way it was last year when the drivers went out, also getting a crackling noise when in revere and I turn the wheel from that side. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Quick Mid November Update- New brake pads installed todays as well as the hose clamps on the rear springs to see if we can keep those in place. Not much of an update but it’s something. Also finally installed the heavy duty drive flanges. Coming up in the next month - The passenger side cv...

    I plan to do an update on the suspension most likely next year at some point. I like the set up you have, looks perfect. I will look into the shocks in the meantime and see if I can at least keep the springs in place Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
