Question about 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser
I also have been trying to diagnose a violent vibration in a a 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser which occurs after hitting bumps at about 100 kph (60 mph). This typically occurs when crossing the small bumps which are located where bridge concrete is separated from the main highway.
I have changed the tires, the wheel rims, the shock absorbers, the steering damper and the tie rod ends... and still have the problem.
I am currently looking at possible replacement of the leaf springs and or problems with the leaf spring bushings.
Change front axle swivel bearing each side has 2bearing one on top and one baton use prober washers and prober adjustment.
also check front wheel bearing..
also check steering clump.

Whilst not familiar with your vehicle, in mercedes it is called highway hop, and was caused by the universal joint(speed related) that goes to the gearbox,they also added a damper to the diff (weight, frequency related)), , in regards the leaf springs, unless the spring hanger bushes are totally knackered it shouldn't cause problems.
2)unijoints or excess movement of the gearbox output shafts
3)excess pinion movement of diffs(where the uni joint bolts on)
5)?bent axle (rare but they do do it)
6)swivel bearings in the front diff
Not sure as to your front end set up, but this may help?
