I have this TSB done, I don't think it has anything to do with wheel shudder. Only steering wheel / shaft related with a clink or rattle.

Found a way to get the 4 leaf TSB done if you have a 2012 or 2013 model with the 3 leaf pack. Took my truck in today for T-SB-0249-12 (driveline vibration), and I'll be getting my new 4 leaf pack tomorrow as part of the fix!

For those thinking I'm cheating the system, I really do have the driveline vibe. However, feeling lucky I can kill two birds with one stone! Hope this helps some of you guys.

Called Toyota dealer service. They said I needed to load the truck with weight for them to verify the problem. I assume you have the TRD off road package with 2 plus 1 leaf and getting the 3 plus 1 leaf. Can you provide more details on dealing with service to get the upgrade?

Just as a note, I have a 2012 DCSB TRD OR with the 3-leaf pack. I loaded about 750 pounds of flooring material in it a week ago. It was squatting some, but it rode just fine. Personally, I am going to stick to stock until time to upgrade tires and shocks, then go with aftermarket. I rarely drive it loaded like that.

Called the dealer today on TSB 0359 (rear suspension). They stated they only perform this TSB up to 3yr/36,000 miles, and since I have a 2007, I'm out of luck, unless I want to pay for it myself. They quoted $2900 to replace the leafs, front shocks, and do an alignment. I'm a bit curious why the front shocks need to be replaced; I don't think that was mentioned in the original TSB.

My original plan was to get the leaf added, and have them throw in 4 Billies and do the alignment as part of the TSB since they were at it anyway. Not so sure, now...

When my new 2013 Tacoma AC Turd Off-road is due for the 5000 mile oil
change, I will have it changed, and also submit the beast for T-SB-0249-12
Driveline Vibration between 15 - 25 MPH

I am having shudder/vibration on moderate to hard acceleration between 15-28mph
in the floor, seats, and steering wheel. Under easy accel no vibration. This is exactly
the TSB and I have some faith that the dealer can fix it. I will report results.

it'll be at least a month before I get this done

I am taking my 11 in later today to have them look at it. I am at 37K but the drivetrain should be longer right? Hope they will work with me. I have the vibration from 10-30, just noticed it a week or so ago so I am not sure. we will see

More or less, yeah. Not sure where they were pulling their info from, but they've definitely pushed me into reading more HOW TO threads here on TW!

Found it to be a bad u-joint. The middle u-joint right by the carrier wouldn't take any grease. And when he disconnected it from the axle it wouldn't pivot at all. They replaced it and now all is right again

So, just a quick update on our weak rear leafs issue. Even after the dealership replaced my rear leafs for no charge, I was still unhappy with my stance. It was still about an inch low in the rear with a topper and tools in the bed. I decided to take the easy less expensive route for now, and did an AAL. It bumped me up about 2" in the rear from what it was, for right now, I'm sure it will settle a bit though in time. Overall I have 1-1/2" higher stance in the rear now, which is what I was looking for. Next purchase will be Tires.

Just want to say, you guys are the BEST!
I've had a couple of these problems with my 2012, bump from behind feeling (#TSB-0250-12) and the sagging rear springs.
Setting up an appointment today with the dealer on the west side of ATL, but if they aren't willing to work with me I will make the trip to the Mall of GA and get it fixed there.
So thanks for the heads up and I'll let you know if this dealer gives me any trouble.

Got an appointment with my local dealership. Had about 300-400 lbs in the truck (shell, sleeping platform & camping gear).

Tech takes the vehicle out for a drive. I ride along. When we get back the answer is "well it feels like it's carrying a load". At less than 400 lbs? That's it?!!?

The service manager at least agreed that an AAL would not void the suspension warranty (gonna get it in writing when I take it in for the 5K service) but I thought I was buying a truck not a car with a cargo box.

Should've bought a used truck and put the $ into setting it up the way I want it.

Live and learn.

Sorry to hear - hang in there. They will be adding this to the TSB for '12-'13's if enough people make a stink about it.

If your dealership is giving you trouble you always have the option of going somewhere else. My dealer did the TSB no questions asked / no ride along - I do have an '11 though.

Finally got the driveline fixed- Permanently!

After multiple visits and more than a year jacking with Toyota, I got the permanent fix for the driveline vibration.
Never again.
I couldn't be happier!
Adios~ Amigos!
5.0L V-8 XLT same gas mileage as Taco 4.0, go figure.

is the vibration when you are accelerating kind of fast? i just purchased my tacoma a little over 2 weeks ago and i noticed a vibration right away, but it only happens when i take off fast.. if i accelerate at a normal speed there is no vibration

Tacoma / Ford

Nice looking Ford. You will not find a truck that won't have an issue. As for the gas MPG's you will not see the same MPG's with a full size truck V8 as you would in a V6 Tacoma. Ford 4x4 5.0LT 14 city 19 HWY. Tacoma 4x4 4.0LT 16 city 21 HWY. My brother just bought a 2013 ford F150 XLT 4x4 5.0LT and we took both on a 208 mile trip in Missouri, mostly flat HWY he got 20.5 and I got 24 cruse set at 65MPH.

NICE TRUCK!! I am living in brazil part of the year, I bought a 2012 Ford Ranger 4 door cab with a 3.0 powerstroke diesel. It now has 15,000 KM on the clock around 8,000 miles and it seems to be breaking in bot has a way to go. On the highway with a light load, running AC at 70 mph Ii am averaging 14.5 KM per litre which is 31 MPG, if I slow down to 60 mph and no ac it gets 15.5 KM per litre around 32 mpg, in the city bumper to bumper traffic I get around 12 km per litre around 27 mph, the truck makes good power / torque but passing on the highway etc it somewhat weak. As I am so happy with the diesel I am going to do the DiezelToyz D4D 3.0 Turbo Diesel swap in My 2009 TRD SPort Tacoma
