Actually, there are not a places to lubricate, other than the Rzeppa joints (those at the big ball & socket looking things right behind the front wheels). That being said, here is what I would look for if it was in my shop:
Examine the front sway bar bushings. They may be bad or worn. Rocking side to side will move the swat bar. Look at the bar, there are 4 bushings; 2 at each end, and 2 under the center of the vehicle, held in by a "half-moon" looking clamp. Spray WD-40 or something like that on it real good & drive it.
Get back to me if this does not help.

First, make sure your parking brake is off.
Remove the rear caliper and then the brake pad housing. In the center hub of the rotor the parking brake shoes are located. The may need to be loosen first. There is a hole between 2 of the studs you need to align at the bottom. Look in the hole with a flashlight and find the star wheel. Use a screw driver to turn the wheel up a few turns to loosen the parking brake shoes from the rotor hub.
After that there are 2 threaded holes in the rotor near the studs you put two 8mm bolts in and slowly tighten each and it will pull the rotor off the hub. They rust up pretty bad so use penetrating oil on them.

If the rotor is behind the flange then you will need to remove the hub . Its 4wd so remove the bolt and the axle from the hub first.

SOURCE: trying to change the front
conventional wisdom says that these are NOT something you can do at home.
you cannot use a pullers, as the centre of the pullers can only go against the driveshaft, and the pressure will damage the CV joint.
the bearing and rotor assembly are press fitted into place, and usually need to be removed from the rear with a hydraulic press unit.
a slide hammer is either not heavy enough, or the sudden impact from a heavy slide hammer is likely to damage the rotor
the truck (or at least the bottom of the strut) needs to be taken to a workshop equipped with a hydraulic press.
this is the recomendation from the land cruiser owners club.
if there was an easier way to do this job, those guys would have found it.
sorry i cannot be more help, but the owners club would have found another way if they thought it was safe and not likely to cause damage.
