Symptoms of Worn Bushes.

I ask because I don't know. I mean I know you can get under and lever at
various linkages which I intend to do shortly. But what are the symptoms
apart from the odd clunk? I also imagine it's increadibley difficult to
identify multiple "slack" bushes whilst two or more wheels remain on the
ground.

I'm suspecting various worn Bushes on Alfie our Range Rover. Basically at
between approx 64 and 70 mph it's getting some vibrations which are best
described as creating a helicopter sensation. Being the chap I am I've not
taken it over 70 so don't know if it will drive through the vibe.

Other item I suspect is the props.

I've done both front wheel barings recently (no change to rumble) and also
replaced tyres and had a balance (again no change to rumble).

Depends a bit what bushes are worn - usually either clunking or, if they are
bushes whose wear allows an axle to "steer", wandery steering. The symptoms
you describe do not sound like bushes, but could be either swivel preload
or as you suspect one of the prop shafts.

Have a look at the shocker bushes while you're under there too.
