I never worked on a Tacoma's... But, on most every other vehicle, you need a pitman arm puller, you should be able to rent one from autozone. Spray the hell out of it with penetrating fluid first, some times they are a real pain in the arse to break free.



To install, you just slide it on and tighten to torque, which is usually rather high, so you'll need a large torque wrench.

If you have your gear box off, just make sure that pitman arm goes on the same way it came off or you might get one hell of a head ache. Some pit man arms can go on 3 or 4 different ways, not sure about the Tacoma.

It may seem like a silly thing to say, but if you rebuilt your gear box it's easy to lose track of where it was.

It's all pretty simple, good luck.

the gearbox is still on the truck, i was gonna take a paint marker and make a line from the box to the arm and then duplicate it on the new one, although i thing the yota arms have splines that match up, 4 that are flat to be exact, i think
