Re: Rx4 problems??

Hi and welcome.

Just get under the car and look a5t the donut shaped damper forward of the rear diff.
It has 6 bolts through it and they usually fail after 60,000miles or so.

It is an easy swap for a half competent mechanic or even the home hack. I replaced mine in about an hour.

There is a thread about it here somewhere. Just search for rubber coupling and you should find it.

If it turns out to be stuffed, DaveMac Props over your way has them listed on eBay rather inexpensively. Just search Rx-4 coupling on eBay .
He also repairs/reconditions the whole tailshaft if yours is the centre bearing. Just shoot him an email via the listing and he'll reply. He did for me all the way down here in Australia.
