My HJ60 Series Toyota Landcruiser rocks diagonally and side to side when driving faster than 70km/hr over uneven ground. Sometimes worse than others, it tends to throw the car around the road more than I'm comfortable with. So far I've been to 3 mechanics and none have fixed the problem. I've replaced the front shocks, tightened the front stabilising bar and replaced all the worn bushels, fixed possible steering problems and tested the tyres. Any ideas what could possibly be causing the rocking? Cheers

if its the kind of rocking im thinking of get your wheel alignment checked wrong camber/caster car cause it to tram track(follow every high/low point on the road).

I would be looking for a warn ball joint ect . This can make you car swing from side to side in a fast manner , in a normal car it feels like its shifting lanes left and right , in a 4x4 it feels like the shocks are gone . :-)

good luck ,

ask youe mechanic if he goes off road , if he answer is no way , then he probaly hates 4x4 's , your answer is , find another mechanic lol

Gday
If it is lifted high, the caster will be out enough to do this. Putting skinny tyres on the front will help things alot.
Other things to look for are bent rim/s- drive and have a friend look from another car
busted ctr bolts in the springs- look for witness marks at the diff housing that things are moving.
Good luck with the investigation

The back diff has been leaking a lot but apparently there's no sign of any cracks, could this have something to do with it?
