Balance or something else?

Bought my FL2 in feb. Was always some vibration in the steering wheel at speed. Finally decided to get it balanced and alignment on Friday. Doesnít seem to have fixed the vibration (hard to tell as itís anecdotal but may have got worse). You guys think this could be that the balance was not done well or are there other issues that could lead to this? Cheers

Try swapping tyres front to back. That should eliminate balance and tyre deformation issues. Ex AA Series III LWB Safari - Gone
300TDi Disco (bought new - terrible car) sent back after 18 months
Freelander 1 Estate - leased, given back at end of lease
200TDi Disco (bought from a mate with 100,000 on the clock) - Gone
Disco 2 TD5 - sold and exported to France
FR2 TD4 GS - Gone
FR2 SD4 HSE - Now changed for a DS

Did they balance all 4 wheels ? As out of balance rears can cause vibration.

Alignment problems are a nightmare. I'd check up on what equipment they used to do the alignment. A lot of garages don't have the correct gear to properly undertake 4 wheel drive alignment, or the training to use what they have properly. Updated- Waiting for a Scotland v England 6 Nations home win. 24th Feb 2018
