(2003 Tacoma 2 wheel drive)
My 2003 has developed some play in the steering over the last six months,a friend and I put it on a rack today and checked tie rod ends,upper -lower bushings and general front end. Everything looked and felt tight. I then checked the upper and lower u joints and "rag joint" on the steering column.
There is something loose in this area but we can't seem to pinpoint it. We where going to order all the parts down to the rack and pinion but the price kind of suprised us ($ 300.00). Has anyone else had this problem with their Tacoma? I'm kind of suprised that we where unable to pinpoint this loose or broken part????
