30mm Lean on Drivers Side

Hi. All advice welcome.
I have noticed for a while now that my 56 plate Sport leans on the Drivers side. I've decided (whilst finding a perfectly flat spot) to finally measure the floor to arch heights at all levels and basically all the measurements are consistent with it being 30mm lower on the drivers side when in the normal ride height.
The info screen does not show any fault or red markers when on the 4x4 screen.
Please help with all of your positive advice......

Get it calibrated.

Measure between wheel center and arch lip in future

Hi. Thanks for your quick reply. Sorry, i forgot to mention that an independent Land Rover Service Centre recently calibrated it whilst it was in for something else however this didn't appear to make any difference.

Hi. I may well have too as it's really annoying. However I really distrust my local Land Rover Main Dealership where I purchased the last one i had. During the 2yr warranty on my last Sport I think I saw them more than my wife. I swore I'd never return to hear their guff again. So not too sure where to go to be honest....

Mine had a lean to the drivers side by about 30mm, I tried calibrating it with my IID tool but it was not successful. Took it to our LR dealer 2 weeks ago and had it calibrated and itโ€™s been level since - it cost me an hours labour Thumbs Up Current

Thanks IOMMAN. I may have to grin and bare it at my local dealers.

This was a photo of my 4x4 info screen which only showed one corner low, but the dealer said that they plugged it into their diagnostics and all the suspension was actually out of calibration. It now drives and rides a lot better as it always felt heavy the the OSR

Hi, quick update 're 30mm lean. I've had the car calibrated but still not convinced. Initially it wouldn't accept calibration then on the second attempt it did. I'm of the opinion that there is a minor improvement but it's still low on the drivers side front and rear by approx 20mm to 25mm consistantly. Is there any mechanical adjustment which can be made? I have tried to include a photo of the 4x4 info screen...

If you get the car plugged in to a GAPII tool or similar, it will show the height sensor readings of each corner, and if there are any faults.
This is your best option. A dealer/indy or local friendly tool owner on here or the D4 forum will be able to do this.
Maybe try the D4 forum, post where you are and see if someone will help out.

A GAPII plugin unit will read faults on other vehicles, but is locked to it's initial VIN car, unless it is the pro version, or another license is bought.
Further licences are ยฃ60 per vehicle.
Many of the D4 owners on the forum buy the tool themselves as it is almost the 'must have' unit for the D4.
Search for Duckworth Parts, as they have an offer for forum users. Dan is the man to deal with. 2011 MY D4 HSE

Could just buy the GAP Eas Diag. tool, half the price of the GAPIID tool but obviously is only for the EAS, but if I remember correctly will read other codes but can't clear them or change CCF files.


Cheers

from that picture, the car knows it's leaning.

(if you look at the green and white bars)

The question is why ! It could consider it within limits though. While not ideal

If you raise the suspension up and then down to normal (with parkbrake off), does it still look like that ?

Hi Andy K. I have raised and lowered to normal height as suggested (with brake off) and it's still the same unfortunately. It's a frustrating little fault!
I'm not confident enough to go down the route of buying the IID tool. I wouldn't even know where to plug it in. I'm a nuts and bolts man....

My car has gone 4 weeks since it was recalibrated by our LR dealer and it sits perfectly level - my wife dropped me off yesterday and I watched her drive away and itโ€™s was spot on, plus all the bars are now level on the info screen

I tried a number of times to calibrate it with my IID tool and was unsuccessful so I bit the bullet and got our dealer to set it up using their diagnostics Current
