    Mounts are good diff is good my son had the exact same problem with a 2002 Mitsubishi tj Ralliart and it was the centre support drive shaft bearing...I was so sure that when I replaced that in the vxr it would be problem solved lol...

    Thatís a real head scratcher! Drive shaft phasing, or driveline angles? Clutching at straws here! Does anyone else have the same problem with this model?

    wheel bearings?

    Can you simulate any play with the car off the ground?

    have you replaced the inner tie rod ends or just the outers.
    Also, sounds silly, but were the wheels balanced by the same shop every time?
