    heavy front end vibration whilst driving

    Mine does it about 80 or 100 if my tires are 40psi.
    I have heard of many doing it and assumed it was the steering damper.

    Guys,
    changing the steering Damper isn't going to fix the issue, but it will probably hide it. There is a problem here and it needs fixing NOT hiding so just changing the damper is probably not a good idea.
    As ThreeDogs said, get it up in the air and check all the front end bushes and rods
