Answer 1
I just bought my collage kid one of these and there's a recall on the rear suspension: RepairPal Expert Overview: Toyota has recalled 1996-1998 4Runner trucks because when they are loaded down fully, steering response and handling may be compromised, which can cause a loss of vehicle control. Dealers will replace the rear suspension parts. But I would have a shop double check those u-joints especially the rear one -

Will check engine mounts. I dont feel it while rolling down the road . getting on and off the gas. Normally you should feel a broken one that way, but will have them checked out. -
