    I have trouble with my 06 Runner wanting to wander as we travel down the freeway. It seems intermittent. I'm wondering if it is a shock issue? Alignment is good. New tires helped, but as they are now down to 30% the stability is not what I would expect. Any of you face this issue?

    My 2003 I think still has the original shocks and I haven't experienced you issue. Any recent work on your front or suspension that may have caused it?

    My '00 needs stabilizer links and new sway bar bushings which my dealer says will cure that loosey-goosey front end feeling. Take a look.
