Question about Nissan Cars & Trucks
The 4 main radius rods that locate the rear axle have large rubber bushes at the connections to the axle and the chassis which wear out over time. Take the rods off the vehicle and using a 20 ton press, press them out taking care not to bend the radius rods while doing so. Each bush has an outer sleeve which usually rusts itself solidly to the inside of the socket of the rod. You can buy OE bushes, or get cute polyurethane ones eg Superflex, Nolothane, etc. Which stay tighter longer..but can stiffen up the ride a little at the same time.
Do the bushes in the panhard rod as well..that is the rod which stops side to side movement of the rear axle and is located on top of the rear axle and attaches to the chassis.
taht ahold cure the death wobbles but if there is still a little wobble, look at replacing the bushes on the anti roll (sway) bar as well, both rear and front.
that should return the old girl to nimbleness....

Check steering/suspension for loose/worn out parts and replace if needed. check tires for belt separations and replace if needed. if you have a steering damper check and replace if needed.

Hi Damien, Did you lately have any work carried out to the valve timing assembly? If a timing belt or chain has been replaced and the timing has no been set correctly, misalignment can cause over heating. It would help to know what engine is fitted into your vehicle and if it is diesel or petrol. Regards John

drum brakes can be adjusted through a slot at the rear of the backing plate normally at the top. Use a flat bladed screw driver or a special tool used top adjust drum brakes. The secret to adjusting drum brakes is to adjust up till the shoes touch the drum and then hit the backing plate several times with a hammer . This allows the shoes to move into the new position and equalise out. Repeat the process until you get an even contact noise when turning the wheel. Pumping the brakes at intervals while adjusting also helps centralise the shoes into position
