My 86 4Runner has developed a shimmy at low speeds. It's not as bad at 55mph. I climbed under with a pry bar to look for anything that might be loose or worn. Everything seems to be tight except the Idler arm. The shaft has about 1/16 or so of play. Can the Idler arm be repaired (new bushing) or does it have to be replaced?
2nd question, can anyone tell me what gear ratio axle code G292 is?

Unless the shaft or the ball stud is shot, you can replace the bushings easily. You can remove the housing from the frame and take it apart even without having to pop off the relay rod from the idler arm ball stud. Just loosen the nut before you remove the housing. (if you are lazy like me)

I'll hang on to the factory. I picked up a TRW from Advance Auto on the shelf, installed and no more shimmy.
Thanks To All That Responded.
