About Replacement Wishbone Parts | Used, Second-Hand Wishbones

In a standard wishbone suspension there are two wishbone shaped metal arms (sometimes called A-Arms) per wheel. Each Land Rover wishbone is mounted to the chassis at two places using bushes or ball joints and to the knuckle in one place. The coil spring and damper is attached to the rear wishbone of the pair.

Their role is to precisely control the motion of the wheel during travel. Although they are sometimes called A-Arms, they can in fact also be L shaped or H shaped, with L shaped brackets preferred for passenger vehicles as the drive can be more comfortable and have good handling.

The Land Rover wishbones are configured slightly differently to front wishbones. Where two Land Rover wishbones are used on each wheel, in rear suspension you can have a pair of wishbones on each side of the wheel, meaning a total of four wishbones per wheel.

In the failure of a Land Rover wishbone you will notice a very loud rattle, vehicle vibration and lack of control over wheel positioning. Damage is more likely on ball joints where wishbones connect to the vehicle and can be caused by corrosion.

Land Rover trivia

  • Although the first Land Rover was designed in 1947 (by Maurice Wilks), the company wasn't actually founded until 1978!
  • The designer Charles S. King worked with Rolls Royce to design jet engines before going on to build the Range Rover. King would go onto building a car around those jet engines that then held the world land speed record, the first turbine-powered vehicle to do so.
  • Most cars get an immediate redesign after the prototype is designed. Not with the Range Rover, however! The 1966 design was considered perfect as it was, which never happens in the automotive industry. The Range Rover is considered a work of art, and one of them is even on display in the Louvre.
  • Inspired by the Jeeps that had been used in WWII, the first Land Rover's steering wheel was in the middle of the dashboard. This was partly to counter the need to create left and right-hand drive models for different countries.
  • Land Rover was notorious for trying to find ways to avoid paying taxes and extended that to their customers too. They built the Defender 110 so that it could (just about) fit 12 people! Technically, that meant that they could class it as a bus, and owners didn't have to pay standard road tax.
