    I've already had the front spring bushes done, so it can't be them. I think the diff is the next move. I've go to do something about the problem, the Corsair mostly for holiday driving, and noise is worst just at the speeds you'd use on country roads.

    I had the same annoying vibration on my MK1. The driveshaft was balanced, diff ck'd ok, and replaced the shackle bushings. Ended up that the front leaf spring bushes were worn which had excessive play. Replaced them. Vibration gone. Pete

    Just replacing badly worn spring pad discs with new ones can raise the suspension a couple of centimetres. This can be done without having to remove the springs if you jack the rear body up to the point where the stress is taken off the leaves and they can be opened slightly with a screwdriver.

    The prop shaft now balanced, but the growling vibration still there. Looks like the diff will have to come out, there's play at the pinion bearing.
