I have a Freelander that I've been driving for the past year and it's developed a heavy vibration under power. I wonder if it's what you have got?

I put mine down to a worn RH inner CV joint and it's easy to diagnose without getting underneath....It shakes the whole car under power in any gear but is easier to spot in a high gear. Use the speed to sway the car from side to side (if safe to do so). As the car rolls, the inner CV has to deal with a greater angle on the inside of the turn...this is what makes the vibration. If I sway the other way it's quiet.

Is that what you have?

I reckon so!! The joint is a spider joint that do fail this way. I still reckon it's a combination of inner joint and tie bar bush soft!!

The joint is likely stiffening up under load so the added load is going into the bearings in the box or IRD! This fault is quite common on the 1.8 Rover 45 as they share many components with the Freelander!!
