My friend has 2000 tacoma 4x4 trd that has high speed wobble. Feels like a heavy trailer tossing it around. Anybody have any ideas of the cause or the cure thanks in advance.

Check the alignment and if there is any play in the steering.

P.S. Look for a big heavy trailer behind it also!

Balance the Tires and set the alignment. If he's been playin in the mud, wash it out of the rims.

Ok i guess I left a few things out. New shocks front and rear been aligned twice and tires replaced all by dealer. Any more Ideas.

I have a 2000 tacoma and I have never fealt the wobble since I got new tires. (bfg muds... now I have a new "mud terrain" wobble). Before it was only a slight shake in the steering wheel though. I know other tacoma guys have had this problem much worse and I have seen many post about it and what to do on the toyota tacoma delphi dicussion board.(didn't read those though cause I didn't have it) www.delphiforums.com and then search for tacoma territory. good luck, tim
p.s. or I guess he could just go here.

Does it have some kind of after market shock and spring on the front? And if it does, is there a crapload of preload on the spring? Check it out.

Perhaps a bent rim or two? I know one of my rims is bent pretty good.

I would think that you would know a wheel was bent when trying to balance the tires. And if it was something like a bent wheel, wouldn't it shake a little at any speed. It is most likely a bushing or some other part that at a certain harmonic shakes violently. My Ranger has a bad shake from time to time. But that may have something to do with the fact that the piviot bushing for the right beam is all but gone. Keep in mind that the shake may not be in the front at all.
