Michele Posted August 22, 2005 Share Posted August 22, 2005 Well,it was time for me to experience some issues it seems... Some of you may remember I fitted my RR HD (red/white) springs a while ago,as DD did before me (I have yet to get longer dampers to match but...). These gave my 90 a nice lift,even with my winch & bumper fitted. I first had some bad annoying vibes until last Saturday when I finally fitted Land Rover spring silencer plates (from Discovery # ANR 2938,I have the label somewhere)to the front. The bad vibes are now gone (this is probably the cheapest alternative route instead of a DC shaft). These isolators add barely 1 cm more of lift (uh-oh)... The Cube is quiet as before,but! I found myself scared to death while on tarmac, as sometimes (I think when the pavement has some irregularities,corrugations,cracks,whatever) the steering starts shaking as mad! I mean it shakes so hard it you can literally feel the whole truck shaking! I thought I was about to loose another wheel (some may remember) and stopped one side, but wheeels are ok as the steering etc. Now what? I know with a lift the front roll center is raised because and more "darting" about on the road in response to road irregularities...but this is too much! Cranked radius arms jump into mind,but I can't afford now. I have a couple of o.e. arms from a 1986 90 Diesel Turbo laying in the box I could sacrifice and try to bend in a workshop...just need a precision press and someone who knows what to do...but... ...I don't really know... So...thoughts? The Cube handles fine and go straight if I leave the wheel,is quiet as before. It's just this horrible shaking which worries me. (SOB) TIA... P.S. Went out for pizza and a Guinness these evening and while getting back some shakes woke up a friend of mine who was almost sleeping...
