    So David Tarantino at ETD Tire up in Denville NJ put in my replacement steering rack that I got from The Rack Doctor, at his regular labor rate plus an alignment. He did a great job with the install. Couple days later my pump was screaming, turns out the rack that was just put in was bad out of the box (was a Remanufactured unit). Ugh. I got a warranty replacement and Dave put in the second rack at a super disounted rate just to help me out. man, what service. Also rebalanced my front tires again as part of the second install. I post this because it's so rare to find a shop that goes the extra mile. Anyone in NJ close to his shop should defintely take their Tacoma to him. I am in no way affiliated with ETD Tire, I'm just a happy dude that finally found a shop that I trust to work on my Taco:D

    Also, check out my other post about ETD balancing my tires correctly the FIRST time!

    THANKS DAVE!

    I take GSP to Exit 145, get on 280 to 80W and take the Rt46 Denville exit. ETD tire is about about a mile on the right. Across from the diner!
