#1 of 21 Car violently shakes
Aug 06, 2009 (5:36 am)
I have an 02 qx4. At certain speeds (45 or above) the car begins to shake/sway/rock back and forth. Sometimes it feels like the vehicle could flip over. I have replaced all the shocks and struts. I inspected for any broken sway bars/bolts etc and nothing seems to be wrong. Has anyone else had a similar issue? If so what is the fix?

I have an 02 QX. The problem you are having is the rear sway bar bushings. There are 4 of them. The cost to replace (local mechanic in Greenville SC) was about $500 and takes a few hours. Unfortunately for me, I have some mechanical abilities and replaced the rear shocks (didn't fix the problem) then the front struts (did not fix the problem) before I had to have a mechanic replace the bushings. They knew right away what the issue was because they have a pathfinder with the same issue in there a week prior.

Thanks for the responses. Just joined the forum. Didn't even get to post a question. Local mechanics tried various things with no fix.

I have a 99 QX4 with swaying. Did you get your's fixed and do you know if there is any recalls about the problem.
#7 of 21 vibration at highway speed
Mar 12, 2010 (3:47 pm)
A few months ago after tire rotation and balance at Costco, I have vibration at 65 ~70 MPH. It is not really bad but my hands on steering wheel can easily feel it. Costco rebalanced the tires and vibration is still the same, not better not worse. Since it is not very bad I kind of got used to it.
Today Midas told me if vibration is like what I described, it is either the tire, or the tire balance, very very unlikely caused by something else. I will rebalance them one more time and see what happens.
I never had this vibration before, at any speed up to ~ 100 MPH.

I think it is a waste of time, I did all of that and nothing. I finally found out...sway bar bushings and lower control arm. fixed me up and have had no problems since.

Did you have it fixed or did you fix it yourself? I'd like to know how difficult it is for a DIY. I am afraid the shop will "find" other problems and I have to pay unnecessary money...

I paid to have it fixed total was $300. it is sometimes cheaper to uae nissan pathfinder parts as they are the same vehicle in many respects.
