3 - I: landrover..steering system..under warranty..a known problem

Resolved Question:

2009 Landrover Discovery 3 - I have an issue with what I understand is bushes in the steering system. When turning slowly, usually to the left, I feel distinct bumps like something isn't fastened properly.
I have had this "repaired" under warranty twice now and to no avail.
Is this a known problem, should there be something I could explain better to the service department?
Thanks
Damian

DBranch :

Welcome to JA. Do you know what they fixed under warranty?

JACUSTOMER-4agpauut- :

Ball joints and hydro bushs knocking...

JACUSTOMER-4agpauut- :

also the steering rack knocking...

JACUSTOMER-4agpauut- :

replaced hydro bushs ball joints and steering rack...

JACUSTOMER-4agpauut- :

that was the 1st service...

JACUSTOMER-4agpauut- :

looking for docs for the 2nd time

DBranch :

Ok. This is not a known problem. If the rack is knocking then it probably is the bushings. Also you could have lose tie rod ends. I have seen those go bad on these a couple of times. Also the control arm bushings are a known problem and you will hear a knocking noise in the suspension. You may also have a sway bar link knocking. These are some other things that could be checked.

JACUSTOMER-4agpauut- :

ok cool...will book it in for another round

DBranch :
