The owner of this Land Rover Discovery 4 decided he wanted to replace all four of the lower suspension arms as they had excessive wear in most of the bushes (common problem).
After a bit of research he booked it in with us to carry out the work for him.
Anyone who has tackled this job before will know its not a five minute job, especially when the bolts seize inside the bushes!
First thing we always do on jobs like these is to wire brush all the bolts and spray them with freeing oil in the hope to make life easier for us.
This did work on 50% of the bolts but there were several that no matter what we tried they needed to be cut out.
After replacing all the arms it was time for a full geometry setup as the arms had adjustments for Camber, Castor and Toe.
I must admit once all the work had been carried out the Discovery 4 drove perfectly, there was no more wandering at speed the steering was precise and not loose, it felt like it should do.
We did advise the customer to bring the Discovery 4 back after a few hundred miles so we could re-check the geometry once all the suspension components had settled in.
