Yeah, I did the cb drop as well but it didn't work. The angles were pretty good too. I had a one piece drive-shaft fabricated using part of the existing 2 piece for 250 bucks installed. No more take off shudder.

I was going to do that too. I figured it would go away if at stock level. Anyone who lifted their (late model)4x4 Tacoma and didn't get the vibe/growl is lucky. Yup I got mine right after the lift but it didn't seem to get worse going from 1.6 to 2.5" via the 5100 clip. I hardly notice it anymore with the Duratracs. I dont know if I should even bother to push the issue with Toyota, but my truck has only 7800 mi on it? The take off shutter is bothersome as well. I've gotten used to it though.

Just got my diff replaced and vibes are back and worse within 1k. It's ridiculous and getting very annoying.

Hey lundy, how did the CV look where it rides in the bearing? Or did they replace that too?

The dealer didn't show me but they did say it didn't need to be replaced and used the old one. I'm sure it needed to replaced.
Moose:Can I just get that done after the fact? Any chance it'll help? Is it very labor extensive? This sucks cause I'm contemplating just going with an ARB locker for 90% street driven truck

Rumor is that the bearing and tool will cost under 150 bucks

I'd just wait until the new bearing is ready and replace both if needed them. It may be that your axle is fine (although I have to wonder if it came back this fast). If the axle is fine, then bearing only. If both, then you'll have a permanent solution...for a lot less than an ARB!

I'd like to know how much the bearing is without the tool. Several have pulled the bearing with the free rental pilot bearing removal tools. Current bearing is about $10 add in things like seal, oil, and possible CV Axle, you approach that amount. But if it's a one-time cost, then it's certainly worth it (compared to the bearing which only lasts...we'll see).

front diff shaft vibration

I have a 2007 Tacoma TRD 4x4 4 door shortbed with 40,000 miles. Did not have any issues until I put 2" in the front and 1" in the back. Now I have a vibration coming from the front. Everything that I have t/s leads to this needle bearing issue. My question to all of you knowledgeable people, I put the 1" diff drop spacers in, has anyone added thicker diff drop spacers?? like 1 1/2". While I was trouble shooting this I did like is seems most of you and removed the diff drop, which made it worse, so I put it back in and I am at the point of removing the kit and sending it back, just to save the trouble of dealing with it.

I have an 05 3" lift. Lift has been on for about fours years with no issues. Now starting to have grinding, growling, vibrations.
