Hi, so can you give some details please, does it have the dynamic magnaride dampers, (extra setting in terrains response) or standard suspension? What wheel size and which make/spec dampers and springs did you have fitted?

Have you taken it back to whoever fitted the shocks & asked them to look at it?

Hi Thank you for your reply, The shocks have been fitted which were the dynamic mag dampers the wheel size is 18" also the dampers were primed prior to fitting as to regards terrain response I'm not sure what you mean but it did have 5 separate settings. The shocks that were fitted were from British Parts UK in Stevenage and are not from the main dealers Land Rover parts.
The garage has informed me it could be a software problem.

I'm not sure how a software problem could make the dampers like concrete, energised or not the dampers should still act like dampers...

I do believe there is a program to set the dampers up. I had my rears replaced not too long ago - the guy who did them said he equalised the settings on his diagnostic machine - these were magnaride shocks.
