Sounds like a case of cv joint"axle"failure, I would have someone take a good look at the axle the issue might not be noticeable though by just looking if the boots are still intact

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

I had this problem also. I had the rims cleaned, balanced the wheels and replaced the shocks. Each action helped a bit but replacing the shocks was the most improvement.

Your steering damper that controls the steering system's lateral motion is a shock absorber mounted to the steering components under the vehicle. This is most likely the cause of the shaking. Also inspect the tie rod ends and all other suspension systems for possible failure.
The damper looks like this with the replacement hardware;

if it shakes over 50 miles per hour, it could be your front tires need balancing. and check your ball joints while you are at it. or king pins if it has that. (they are different from ball joints but serve the same purpose.)

My jeep frount end shakes when i hit a pothole what makes it do that


Check your steering stability bar I had the same problem and it turned out that I had bent that bar.

The death wobble is basically when you are driving your lifted jeep down the road and the front end starts to shake violently. It can happen at virtually any speed, though mostly above 40 mph or so, and is a frightening experience, especially for those witnessing it for the first time. Now it doesn’t throw you off the road or anything … the front end just shakes. And the only way to stop it is to slow down and pull over. So it wasn’t that hard to get used to at first. But as it happened more and more, it seemed to get more and more out of control.

Hope help (remember comment and rated this).

When you say shakes i am guessing the steering wheel. If it is the steering wheel shaking, it's know as the death wobble. Check the front steering components, look for worn or broken parts. Most common for death wobble are the tie rod ends, idler arm and pitmen arm. look for play along the track bars and check the ball joints. The other thing too that will cause a death wobble is a bad alignment. there may be negative or no caster at all which would give you a death wobble. Check all of the above and keep me posted. Good luck and be safe
