The panhard bushing on the bar that goes side tom side on your axle is blown out.
Thank you. I have never heard of a panhard bar, so this is very helpful.The panhard bushing on the bar that goes side tom side on your axle is blown out.
It is yellow, so it appears someone has placed aftermarket parts in the suspension of your truck.
We all recommend going back to Toyota brand suspension bushings, as they last longer and are more durable than the aftermarket stuff.
Yes, you will get death wobble because of this. Drive slower and keep cautious. Will you die from this? No. You can limp it home, but it needs to be addressed very soon.
You can do these yourself with a press or pay someone else to do them.
I would recommend you go through and do ALL your suspension bushings at one time because it is apparent that the polyurethane bushings installed have reached the end of their life span.
It must be removed.Thank you. I have never heard of a panhard bar, so this is very helpful.
If I were to use this as an excuse to buy a press, does the panhard bar need to be removed, or can it be done from under the vehicle. Guessing the latter.
It must be removed.
Harbor Freight 20T press is best used for these. If you think you can do it yourself, this is the best route to go and you'll save $$$ doing this.
Buy ALL your rubber parts and bushings from www.partsouq.com and they will be Toyota parts. Rubber parts from the Middle East will be way less expensive than you can find domestically.

Do you have a lift kit on the truck? If so, how much, as you may have offset bushings installed and those need to go away and install caster plates instead.
New rabbit hole for you to go down.
It is also recommended that you purchase NEW hardware to go with your new bushings. Read up on wehat NOT to do and then specify the proper torque on all the bolts / nuts.
We can walk you through it and there are plenty of videos about it (Otramm)
Never get rid of tools...EVER... that is a hard lesson.I made myself a mini press with about $30-40 of steel, a half hour with a MIG welder, and 6t bottle jack I already had.
I used it for several bushing changes, and a bunch of other projects.
It sat collecting dust under my work bench most the time, so I scrapped it when I moved and had limited space.
The number of times I've wanted it since makes me wish I kept it
