Traced this problem to a fuse under the dashboard, located in the middle horizontal row right most fuse. Turns out this fuse is the indicator fuse and when this fuse is blown the indicators won't work but the hazard lights still work.

Since you didn't mention the car wasn't running bad, I assume it's running normal which would tend to dismiss a mechanical problem, like you aren't running on all the cylinders.

As Solar Mike said, other mechanical problems can cause what you're experiencing. To answer your question: yes, the two faults you ask about could cause or contribute. The stabilizer mounts (rubbers) by changing the response of the stabilizer bar(s) from moment to moment, or when forces on the mount(s) change direction. The shocks, if worn, will do a poor ...

Oil from the diff can go into the breather and air line, but in tiny amounts. Usually diff leaks through front seal, ...
