    Hi everyone.
    I have a 98 Toyota 4runner ltd, I just change the shocks back and front and my tires are fairly new but whenever the vehicle reach 40mph, it balances side to side. What can I do to make it stable?

    Also, inspect the bushings on your control arms.

    A few things here and there. Still dreaming up stuff
    Agree with above!!!! If it is a 98 I would bet they are all in need of replacing. It is something you can do your self with just a few tools in the garage.

    might be time to do a overhaul or upgrade.....once it's done, it'll be worth it...
