Intermittent shaking

For a while now my 4runner has been shaking at high speeds starting at 65-70 mph intermittently. Sometimes it is worse and other times it seems like it barley shakes at all. When it does shake I notice that the transfer case shifter shakes alot and i can feel it through the pedal and wheel. My tires are like new and wheels should be good. What other components should i check for? Could wheel bearings, tie rods, or ball joints cause shaking like this? Seems odd to me. When driving and doing anything else below 65 mph it drives good.

Intermittent shaking

LBJís... steering column... then other front end wear items

Mtbtim aka Timmy the toolman has a video on how to diagnose and DIY fix play in the steering column, if your brave enough!

I replaced many parts on the front end and finally it was getting rid of play in the steering column crash/slip joint that took care of the wobble/vibration

Replace your LBJís if you havenít just cuz itís easy and might just save your rig !

I'd check front and rear upper and lower control arm bushings, steering rack bushings, and pull the rear drums off to check for oil leak from a rear axle seal failure. It wouldn't hurt to get your tires balanced either.

great points in the previous posts, and I think they cover about all the possibilities - outside of the tires/wheels being in balance, comes down to any component that could develop play in the movement of the front end. That would definitely include:
- Ball joints - upper and lower(common)
- play in the tie rod ends(common)
- upper/lower control arm bushings(less common, but higher miles, likely)
- steering column(no personal experience there)
- Steering rack play - bushings could come be a factor here
- Alignment - usually not a source of a shake, but can make it worse

I'm having a hard time thinking of anything else . . .. so in other words, nothing new from the previous 2 posts. . . doh!
Good luck - highly recommend Timmy's youtube channel if you haven't checked it out.
Cheers
Dave

Tires can still be a problem, don't rule that out.
