    Gents,

    I previously posted a thread concerning a "clicking noise" while turning during a u turn or a sharp turn. A few posted "suggesting" that it could possibly be from CV joint damage, so I took my truck to toyota this morning to get it looked at.

    I just received a call from the service department saying the the tech said that the clicking sound after a certain amount of turning radius is "normal". The tech supposedly checked the suspension, cv axles, and boots and said everything was in order and looked fine.

    The thing is that I never really noticed this sound before after having the truck for over a year and a half. Before I go and pick up the truck, I wanted to get some feedback, advice, etc. about it.....is this really "Normal?"

    Are the steering bumpstops in good shape?
