This could be a real simple fix or tricky, every patrol is different!!
Try the little cheap stuff first one at a time and you will get rid of it, the Patrol can be fixed, my current one had the worst out of the 4 I have owned in my time it is now a joy to drive.
It took a month of test and measure but man I enjoy the smooth ride now, mud wheel balance, then bushes, one at a time,
Isn't that what those other handles on the doors are for... Window Shuttin' ...
If'n thats not the problem check your front rims for a missing balance weight or indeed extra weight such as mud on the inside surface (as suggested by others) then try a Wheel Balance. A decent tyre dude should pick up any other issues when he does the balance.

Several attempts, no luck. Bring out the torch. I sat the butane torch on it for an hour. Yes it's only a butane torch, but...

The rpm ramp up and then when it shifts up to 4th gear there is a kind of subtle knock and a shudder as the rpm drops before it settles back to normal.
I've tried to video...

ZD30 Heat Shield Removal Laceration Club, otherwise known as the ZDHSRLC, In light of recent threads I think we should have our own club, my scars are starting to fade now after 4 years. I'll take #2 and let someone else have #1 :):):):).
So as the title says, what did you do to your patrol today, fitted a 6" lift or just swapped some tyres over?
Ill start, today i removed about 50m of unused wiring that was in the car when i got it and the 5 relays that done NOTHING! and 2 switches on the dash that went no where.
Then i put a...
