Default Severe Wheel vibration

My Disco I (late 97 model, 140K miles), suddenly developed a severe vibration when driven over a rough section of pavement, i.e. a shallow pothole just large enough to suddenly upset the steering geometry. It continues after the bump, but a quick L/R steering twitch stops the vibration

Shocks were replaced last year with Pro Comp 9000s and stabilizer replaced with an Old Man Emu at the same time. I've put less than 4000 miles on it since then (It's my toy, not my DD). Inspection shows no obvious damage. Could this be a bushing issue?

Sorry for the delay, my basement was flooded so I am answering from my phone.

Sounds like the panhard rod bushings need replaced or wheel bearings are loose.

When working with GEMS vehicles. Never try to locate a misfire by pulling plug leads off - pull the injector connector instead. Otherwise you can blow up the ECU.

Secondly never swap ECUs between vehicles to test them, because both vehicles and ECUs may stop working, and you'll have to have them all reset by a franchised LR dealer (ouch!).
