ANTI-SHIMMY/DEATH WOBBLE KIT- NISSAN PATROL GU
Generally, the Nissan Patrol is a tough and ready off road machine, capable of doing big kilometres. One of the common issue faced by Patrol owners is a wheel shimmy, speed wobble or death wobble (As it's more commonly known) at around 70-80km/hr. Wheel shimmy is a quick (4-10HZ) oscillation of the front wheels of a vehicle which results in a "Shaking" of the steering wheel.
Wear and tear in the suspension bushes, steering components, wheel bearings and tyres combine to cause this issue. To make life easier, Drivetech 4x4 has now released a comprehensive kit with all of the components which are normally replaced to correct this issue.
This kit contains-
- Front wheel bearing kits
- Heavy duty steering damper
- Front and rear control arm/radius arm bushes
- Panhard rod bushes
