You may either look for aftermarket steering upgrade.

2000 HZJ79 landcruiser ute diesil frontend shakes at 80 km not wheel balance or damper what could it be ciol spring front end


First off, steering wobble usually starts threw front hubs so ya best is first jack the front up so wheels are off the ground, hold the tyre top and bottoms an try to push it in and out, if there is play there than you may need to
Simply replace wheel bearings etc or in my case just repack and set em an Make sure you do the inner bit 28mm nuts up firm,

Second option is get a high quality steering damper which also helps heaps when 4x4 ing,

Third option could very well be play on the tirod ends an this can be checked by havin te wheels off te ground as steering lock off and just gentler trying to twist the wheel side to side an if there is play than u will know that the slak is coming threw the rod ends before friction hits the steerin arms hence causing vibrations

When going over bumps frontend makes noises worse during cold weather coud it be the struts


Could be anything, do some google searching on it. My prepurchase research indicated that the model line is notorious for needing a front end rebuild every 10,000 miles, everything not just the struts. It is front end heavy and this is increased in braking.

I bought a Hyundai instead and while I am not wholly satisfied with it I am glad that I did not buy the HHR. I carpool in a 2010 HHR, it has yet to hit 20,000 miles and its front end clatters like a car with a hundred thousand on it.

2002 holden rodeo automatic transmision oil capacity


The filter doesn't take any oil, but when they figure the quantity, they figure either filter change or rebuild, the filter change uses about 5 quarts and the rebuild is 12 quarts. I don't have the exact amounts in front of me, but if you need them,I can look them up. Also, I am not familiar with the Holden dual cab, But most automatics are about the same. Hope this helps.

Rebuild the front end


Nope.... best solution is find another Elantra and take the front end apart for comparison.

Need to fit coil springs to Landcruiser 79 series ute (2004)


You need a coil spring compresser, and the proper skill level to use it.
If you try to change the coils without a compresser, you CAN & WILL GET HURT. Coil springs are not something to fool about with if you do not have the proper tools. These things are danagerous.

Found this on internet for mine (can't remember where). Checking on serviceablity for ujoints etc to clarify but heard this from another mechanic one day.

The
noise you are describing is normal for landcruisers with some miles on
them. The noise is drivetrain backlash, while it may not be in
specification 100%, it is fine to continue driving.
Basically the backlash is all the "slack" that is in your system... starts in the transmission,
then you add in the driveshafts slack, them the rear differentials...
all of that combined equals slack that when you let off the gas "thumps
or clunks".
I believe that your driveshaft is not a rebuilable (checking on this)
type (no servicable u-joints=toyota thing) and replacing just that
probably would not be enough to make it go all away.
For 190k, again, this sounds very normal and will cause you no issues.
I hope this has helped, have a good dayAuto Tech Guy -- Friendly Toyota Tech. -- 100% Positive Feedback on 222 Toyota Accepts
