If you're really lucky, it's a loose bolt somewhere on the assembly, although I'd expect you to have vibrations across more speed ranges if that was the case. The 70-75, gas pedal and steering wheel leads me to believe bearing. Could still definitely be something else though.

I could have sworn it was in time with the skid plate. That thing was shaking and I dont think it should, kind of soundd like it also. Skid plate bolts strip out easy, have you checked them ?????

I re-tapped and replaced my skid plate bolts last night so that rattling sound is a thing of the past. I assure you the vibe is not skid plate.

Also got under and lubed all the zerks, not much difference quite frankly.

Quick question on wheel bearings in these 4runners.

How quiet and frictionless should these hubs turn. When I rotate them by hand, I certainly hear them turn. No grinding or anything, but not quiet either.

I honestly think it's your cv's, I have had birfields go in my 87 runner and it sounded just like this. I would pull them and see how much play is in them.
Are the cv's old?, sounds to me like they are low on grease and have excessive play.

watching the video again I would take the skid plate off and take it for a ride,looks like it's lose and vibrating against your frame.

CV's are original, so about 202,000 miles. Is that old?

202k doesn't necessarily mean they're bad, but they could possibly be causing it. IMO its 50/50 on those. You could swap cv sides and see if anything changes? Or just buy one new one and put it in to driver side to see if that fixes it.

If the axles were bad, you'd know it, and they don't typically go unless you lose the grease in them. When I pulled my wheel bearings you could hear the difference between the new one and the old one. The new ones really shouldn't make any noise at all when you spin them.

Thanks everyone for the responses. I will probably look into getting CVJ axles and Bluepitbearings. This may have to wait a bit, but I will update with my findings once its all said and done.

Is it just me or does anyone else think the left front tire tread is shifting back and fourth in the top video ???

It also looks maybe like it's out of round, watch at 2:14 seconds.

Yup, I also noticed exactly what you described. And looking at the video on the passenger side is smooth, no wobble in the tire whatsoever. I decided to swap rear and front driver side tires and record another video. I don't see much tread shifting with this wheel.

The tires have been balanced twice now, last being at Toyota. My suspicion is that I may have damaged the wheel off road about a year ago. Hit some pretty hard ruts and drove it a little too hard on some trails north of Vegas for over 45 miles. I feel I might of thrown the wheel out of round.

That being said, the ride seems smoother now with that wheel on the rear. Here is a short clip from my GoPro.

Firestone Destination AT2. So far so good with these.

Quick question, what is your opinion of the roads here in Vegas? I personally find them real bad, to the point where I can't tell if theirs something wrong with my truck or its the roads vibrating me to death. The 15 and 215 are utter shit, the side roads are utter shit. Seriously wtf. In places it seems like theirs a waviness to the road, almost like your tires are out of balance, but they're not. For me it always happens in the same areas on my commute home.

It seems like you've done quite a bit of modifications on your Runner, but how is your ride quality on these roads?
