              Funnily enough that's exactly what brought this (steering wobble) on I suspect

              I'm doing pan hard rod bushes (front & rear), tie rod ends (left & right), and while I'm at it, Superior Engineer radius arms

                      You also have a Patrol? Or you have something far superior?

                          Swivel/knuckle bearings can be the culprit too. I have a LHS warped disc, which is exagerating either a tie rod end/swivel bearing/panhard bush failure. Will do tie rods at asame time, and check panhard bushes. Steering box mount cracks can cause a wobble too, fuck i hope that aint so....

                              Simpson is a nice, relaxing 3-5 day drive across it. The easiest of the "proper 4wd" trips ive done
