Q: I can feel alot of movement/grinding under my foot when driving

asked by on July 03, 2017

Recently when driving I feel whatever parts would be directly under my feet moving and grinding like it may fall apart. I feel it worse at speeds over 40 and very bad over 55. My 4runner has bigger tires and slight lift but this feeling just started. I don't know what diagnosis I should be asking for.

My car has 18000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
