    One could learn a lot about the vibration, if it is resultant from the driveline, by placing a active GoPro underneath aimed at the driveshaft / rear axle. Record under vibration scenarios and review after.

    When over 50MPH, does the shaking change with RPM change? Does it go away at say 65MPH+?

    you could try rotating front to back, one side at a time and see if the vibration changes.. where you feel the vibration in the truck and if it changes.. steering wheel or floor/seat. this might help you identify which wheel/tire combo is out of balance or has a bad tire.

    Put the factory wheels back on very little vibration.
    My snows general grabber arctic are mounted on rims from a 2009 taco.
    I am going to have a road force balance done next.

    TSB0092-20 will fix the transmission issues
    It should be available on your 2020
    I had it installed and it fixes 95 percent of the issues

    An important part of the TSB provided is to ensure your Tacoma fits into the range of vehicles covered.

    Essentially, the TSB requires measurement of the driveline angles and if not in specified parameters, new leaf (revised) springs are fitted. There is also a change in the steering wheel dampeners.

    Thanks for this. I thought it was something funky with these transmissions causing it (mine is minor but noticeable) but its a driveline issue.

    Yeah, I am looking to have this TSB and the one for updating the ECU done(92-20 IIRC). Hopefully my dealership doesn’t give me shit about doing it, really don’t want to have to file a Corp ticket...

    Wait, so if my VIN is 5TFCZ5AN#LX23#### does that mean mine “should” have the updated parts?

    Anyone get aftermarket leaf pack, ubolt flip kit and still have the issue?
    I’ve got Ironman leaf packs and while it reduced the vibrations I’m wondering if a ubolt flip kit would help. In case I didn’t quite get the leaf/ubolts squared when tightening them.
    Had/have vibrations during decel at lower speeds before and after lift. After they’ve gone down but still noticeable. Felt in petal and wheel.
