If you can provide a little more information and clarification, someone may be able to know what your problem is.When you say that you turn, is it a gentle turn like at a stop light turning left or right or is it a full lock to lock turn in a street ? Do you hear it on level ground or rough roads ? Have you any suspension modifications to your truck and how many miles are on your Taco ?

If you could answer those questions, I am sure you will find an answer.
Good Luck.

Grab the drive shaft and make sure the center bearing does not have excessive play side to side.

I have the same problem when I make left and right turns or backing out of the driveway. It's driving me nuts. Sounds like it's coming from the rear. I had the ujoints checked out, center carrier bearing replaced, etc. Don't know what it could be unless my rear end is shot or my front ball joints which need replacing.

oh man i hope it isn't the same thing that happened to me, mine was doing the same thing. Mine ended up being the double cardan joint was shot, which we all know is a PIA to repair. I just ended up getting a one piece from tom woods for $475 and it solved all my problems.

Same here but mainly when I turned left. Replaced the sway bar bushings and all is fine. Took about an hour.

OP - just an FYI but thread titles of "help" are against forum rules....


Good luck, but without more info and proper info everyone is purely guessing at your issues
