I once saw a lease turn in where the owner had scraped off letters to spell: RA GE OVER

I remember a guy parked in front of the dealership on Sunset blvd and had covered his Discovery with huge lemons…

Funny. Glad the Dro is back!!
Doesn't that RRS essentially shares the front suspension with the LR3? Looks like the front lower "control arm" bushing issue that a dealer threw just a little too much money and time at when sorting it out.
Speaking of which, my 06' LR3 with ~ 54k on the ODO is starting to show a little shimmy around 60-65 mph and while braking when passing through ~ 40-15 mph. I'm still on the original front lower control arms. Is it time to replace or look elsewhere? Tires look fine with no cupping. 35 psi in the fronts and 37 psi in the rears.

If you're getting the clunk/shutter while braking the bushings are prop bad. Somewhere on YouTube there was a guy that taped his phone on the chassis and recorded the slop in the lower arms when driving. I thought that was an interesting way to make sure that was the problem.

Do you have any clunking when you tap the brakes at low speed? It should be totally quiet. You could have a slightly warped brake disc, and the problem seems worse than it is as a result of the bad control arm bushings.

Forgot to mention that story reminded me of the Prime America will "Rip you off" truck that used to be parked on Old Dominion. NOVA crew knows what I'm talking about. Classic, I'd LMFAO every time I drove by.
