Most suspension bushes are available from suspension repair shops. As you will need a press to do the job ,it is generally quicker and cheaper to have the shop do the job. With suspensions be aware that if one bush is failing then the others will not be far behind. Discuss this with an accredited suspension repair shop

Our 1996 nissan terrano shakes out of control when going over 80kms on the motorway and its feels like it might tip over but doesnt as we reduced our speed. Do you think it could be the wheel alignment or...

Shakes? Not very specific. It could be a loose wheel, wheel out of balance, the balance weights may have come off one or more wheel rims (check for the marks on the rims inner and outer rim where they used to be).
As 1996 model, it could also be worn out suspension bushes.
If you drive on a straight road, and you change from accelerating, to decelerating, does the car skew (turn left or right slightly), this would indicate worn suspension bushes at the rear, acceleration pushes the rear axle forward, deceleration pulls it back, if there is wear (slop) in the rubber bushes, the changing alignment of the rear axle causes the car to "throttle steer". At cruise, this could potentially set up a sort of harmonic motion, and cause a form of "shaking".

I have replaced my back shocks on 2004 maxima now something is rattling in the rear end can't figure it out wasn't doing it until I repaced those shocks.

Hi Yameekia, Chock the front wheels, loosen the wheels, jack up the rear end and place chassis stands under the vehicle and then remove wheels. You will see a torsion bar connecting the left and right suspensions. The bar is sometimes referred to as an anti roll bar or a stabilizer bar. It is attached to the body with saddle clamps with rubber bushings, replace both bushes. At either end you will see that the anti roll bar is attached to the suspension by flexible linkages. These are small rods with small ball joints at each end. When worn these same ball joints make a lot of noise, hammering out a drum roll with each bump in the road. Replace those and I believe your problems will be over. You mentioned replacing the rear shocks....what about the front? Did you know that the shocks are not there to give a comfortable ride but instead to hold the tyres in contact with the road surface. They are a safety requirement for road holding, so with that in mind, have a good look at those too! Regards John

I have a 1994 Nissan Maxima SE. The car began to knock and I was told by a mechanic that I needed an entire control arm. When I went to pick up the part, the expert said it could be the bushing. Iff I try...

its cheaper to fit a complete unit as the labour charge is less ,do not listen to a storeman they are not mechanics and are by no means experts ,Yes the rubber bushes can be changed but the ball joint on the end could be worn as well ?? And yes as a old fleet vehicle fitter i would only change the bushes if i didnt the guv"nor would have me thrown out the gate for wasting money but i do feel the mechanic has already weighed up the pros and cons and decided it was cheaper to fit a new unit as the ball joint was wearing as well or the rubber boot was perished ,So iam in full support of the mechanic and buy him a coffee on me as i have answered this question for free so thats the least you can for me

Front wheel wobbing rubber bushing wore out how to fix

It would depend on the Bushing you are talking about. Your best reference will be the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle. This will show you the various bushings and how to replace each. It will also indicate which ones are pressed in and which are not which is important because typically pressed in bushings require you to replace the assembly instead of just the bushing.

How to adjust the handbrake on a terrano ll

On the inboard side of the rear wheel hubs, you will find an oval rubber plug, pry this plug out, to gain access to the brake adjuster.
Pull the handbrake up two clicks.
Jack and support. Remove the rear wheel, and adjust the brake using a screw driver levered through the slot to turn the notched wheel of the adjuster, until the hub starts to drag when rotated by hand. Repeat for the other side. Note the ratchet mechanism on the adjuster will only let it turn one way.
