2008 LR2 Vibration While Driving
My 2008 Land Rover LR2 (60 K) vibrates (like a under wobble throughout-not in the steering wheel) when I drive it. It happens at all speeds but is more noticeable between 60-70mph. It has new Michelin tires and rear brakes but it vibrated before I replaced the tires. The tires are balanced and the alignment has been checked. I've taken it to the tire shop, the dealership, and a repair shop. The drivers from these shops can feel it but they don't know how to fix it. Any ideas?

I believe I figured it out! I was doing maintenance on my wife's car by cleaning her throttle body and her mass air flow sensor because her car kept detecting a vacuum leak. After I was done I was going to do the same to my LR2 and ran out of time to take off the throttle which I thought was the cause of the vibration. The mass air flow sensor is super easy to get to so I just needed up cleaning that only instead. Turns out that seemed to stop my vehicle from vibrating. Hope this helps.

A problem I just came across:
1)Clicking at low speeds, vibration between 40-60 MPH on my LR2 2010 HSE 4X4.
2)Raised the rear wheels, chocked the front wheels
3)Checked for center bearing wear (2 center bearings) . NO WEAR
In order to check center bearing rubber, had to remove cross-members and exhaust hanger.
4)Checked for end play of driveshafts at both transmission end and rear axle end none.
5)When spinning rear tires, noticed the clicking occurring on sudden stops and starts even with wheels raised.
6) No wheel bearing issues, wheels rolled without getting stuck or noise.
7)Checked the six male torx screws going into the differential input and all 6 screws were relatively loose causing rotational play.
8)Re-tightened the 6 torx screws as tight as possible. This is difficult since there is not much room between side of driveline flange and bolts .
9)Assembled center bearings and exhaust hanger, drove car for 5 miles. No clicking or vibration.
