I've had this sway in my Disco for sometime now and have tried to narrow it down - it has lessend but it is still there. So far I have replaced the brakes - I noticed the sway more when I was braking especially braking at a high speed. Then I got new tires and a front end alignment. When putting the Disco on the block for alignment the shop owner mentioned that it seemed to bounce more than normal and recommended replacing the shocks. I have a basic Disco (2001 SD with 54,000). I've noticed in a few of the other threads people mentioning that at this mileage the suspension needs to be replaced. At this moment the truck still sways just not as much as it did before the new tires. It especially seems to sway when I'm braking. Is my suspension gone - Do I need new shocks and springs? If so...what should I get? ...and where?

Thanks for your help.

When I bought offset rims and larger tires all of the in city went away.... I think it is just from the wear and tear on the road

Sounds like your shocks might be in need of replacement. IMHO, I would replace them with OME's. OME's would be cheaper than replacing them with original stuff.

that would be tire pressure. A lower then what is recommended tire pressure or a too large will cause noise.

For example if you put say fifty psi in all the tires it will sound like a basketball and it will be rough ride.

if it is lower then normal say from a leak around twenty then more then likely you will hear a clunk noise everytime you hit a pothole.

Hippy,
Can you better describe what you mean by a sway. Are you talking about your truck body rolling left and right or front and rear, or is the vehicle tracking on the road and wandering wherever it wants?
