1996 Lexus LS400 Q&A
1996 Lexus LS400 Question: Swaying back and forth?
I have a 1996 lexus ls400 and when im driving and touch the brakes, it sways back and forth like a fish in the water trying to swim. the fron suspension is worn out but i do not think the shocks would make it do that. what else could it be? its like some kind of bushing is out im guessing but i am clueless. any one with any kind of feedback that can E-mail me what they think, plz feel free!! (firstname.lastname@example.org)thanks so much. - rickb.
If you get a shudder when braking, this is often warped rotors in need of replacement or resurfacing. You may also have a suspension problem, especially if your car came with fancy air suspension. When that goes out, you can end up with swaying and looseness. This will requirement strut replacement--very expensive for OE parts, and I've heard many owners go with a traditional replacement part, rather than air. - matte
