Range Rover Classic | '87 - '95
The self-leveling unit on the rear of your Range Rover is located over the rear differential. It connects the rear axle to the chassis. It's designed to equalize the weight distribution over the entire suspension when there is a load placed on or in the rear of the vehicle.
The Range Rover has a suspension travel of nearly 11" in the rear, so to prevent the vehicle from "squatting", the engineers utilized this "super shock absorber". This type of suspension design is fairly trouble-free depending upon how much you carry or how often you tow a trailer. It should last at least 100,000 miles.
There is a connector that does fail; the ball joint connection, part # 575882. The problem with the unit or the ball joints will sound like a deep "clunking" coming from the back seat. A ball joint replacement is a relatively inexpensive repair but difficult to diagnose because many mechanics are not familiar with the Range Rover suspension system.
