Steering wheel play/ road wandering
Let me start by saying that I have a 2010 reg cab manual 2wd. I have had it close to a year, and have noticed that I fight the wheel ever since I've owned it. Going down a smooth road at 55-60 mph, I am constantly correcting the wheel slightly. Alignment is good (haven't had it checked by professionals, but it tracks very well), tires are good with no bumps and at proper inflation. Tires are the Dunlops, BTW. I searched the forums, and have read of others having this issue, but haven't found any resolutions. Has anyone found a TSB that corrected this? I called Toyota, and the rep didn't know anything, but did get me hooked up with a case number for the leaf spring TSB. I would like to get all of this stuff done at one time. Thanks for any help.

Take the truck back to the dealer and have them check the allignment - under warrantee.
If the allignment is within spec - then tell them to FIX THE PROBLEM.
It's under warrantee...... get them to fix it!

I think the Tacomas are very sensitive to changes in the pavement. My 2009 drives perfect on some roads and on others the steering wheel shakes like I have a bad tire or something. I hope that doing the TSB for the rear springs helps. My truck seems light in the front because it gets loose when I get in the draft of a big rig.
