Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer.com
This is normally caused by the rear trailing links. They have bushings that when they fail can make the back end of the truck sway.
Here is a image of where to look to check the bushings. If the bushings are torn, replace the links.
If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask. Thanks Jay!

i talked to other pathfinder owners and they call it the death rock will this cure this problem a local technician told me a drive shaft. Works at local service center.
It's not the drive shaft
It's the trailing arms to the rear diff that causes this
I have been working on Nissan's for over 20 years
When the back end of the truck sways, it's those links
I circled where the bushings fail on the links for you
a drive shaft would can cause a vibration, but not the swaying.
Do I have to bring this to nissan or any service center. Your help is appricated in this matter so i dont get ripped off.
I would buy the links from a Nissan Dealer. But you can have any place you like install them,
But if the lower links are bad also, your going to need to get the bolts
