  • Nissan Patrol 1997: What is causing it to shake?

    Even though you have new tyres make sure they’re properly balanced; if they are not good tyres of a reputable brand they can be out of round. Also check the diff and Panhard bar bushes for wear, and replace them if they are found to be worn. If all that checks out ok then it’s likely to be the swivel bearing adjustment on the hubs.
