Shakes or Wobbles problem
1988 Toyota Landcruiser 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 168000 miles
I have a horrible shimmy on occasion. It happens when I hit some sort of transition in the road, say an expansion joint in on a bridge. It is a very violent shimmy. It feels as if the front wheels are going to shake off. It does not happen every time. Typically when I am going down hill or flat, not up. When it happens, hitting the brakes makes it worse, but the only thing that stops it is slowing down to under 25 or so. At high speed (60 - 70), you can feel a similar shimmy in the wheel, but very slight. I have had it aligned and balanced and it helped slightly, but not fixed.
have the same problem?
