I put a short piece of soft heater core hose on the passenger side around 6 inches back from the front, one cannot see it and the hood quit wiggling around.

I have both the Nissan and Thai types, just been to lazy to make the effort to install them.

There are actually two different types of hood bumpers on a 521.  i was able to get the rear ones at a Nissan dealer a few years ago, but the front ones were NLA.

The post (or pin) that goes down into the hood latch on the core support has a lock nut above the plate that bolts to the hood.  You loosen the lock nut, then you can adjust the height of the closed hood with the screwdriver slot in the catch pin.

Balanced tires, good steering ball joints, idler arm and good kingpins will also reduce shaking.

This the part number for the rear ones? 65158A4500  

 

I got that from one of your threads back in 2013.  

 

And Mike tires are nearly brand new, I haven't touched the ball joints, idler arm or the king pins but I can if need be.
