    Hello Yota owners. Trying to figure out a clanking sound from my passenger side front end that only shows itself when I start with power or fast from a stop? Tacoma is a manual v6 2006 access cab. Truck has 6" lift w 20" wheels and 35 x 12.5" tires. I know your gonna blame it on the wheels and tires, but Ive done extensive trimming and cutting to the body and even a piece of the body mount and I have eliminated all tire rub completely, I know its not the tires rubbing for sure! I can completely turn the steering wheel and not rub at all. Visual inspection shows nothing out of the ordinary, I recently replaced both CV shafts ad well. Please let me know if you have any suggestions, thanx a million.

    Either the brake pads sliding back and forth inside the caliper. Or your alignment cam bolts aren't torqued enough. Torque alignment cam bolts n nuts to 100ftlbs, and see if you still here your clank. Only thing you can do for the brakes is replace the hardware. And while your at it, check the torque of all the rest of your suspension nuts n bolts. Good luck
