Maybe I missed it, but what are you going to do for the front drive shaft? A P38 front axle might be a good option.

Yes you're right, it has and has always had the front axle and air suspension from the P38a, that was originally designed in when I was using the rover V8 engine with the box and Borg warner transfer box, this results in the front prop shaft and front differential being on the left side of the vehicle rather than the right as is more common on the discovery. Happily, the Range Rover sport gearbox and NV225 transfer box continue this trend of driving on the left, so I'm all set ! ��

Thanks Walt, I appreciate that - to be honest there is too much money and too much time invested in this project now to abandon it, I will have to finish it if it kills me

A troubleshooting suggestion if your vibration returns, you can mount a GoPro almost anywhere. I have used them to track down problems in complex industrial automation equipment that you otherwise can't get close to when it is running.
