    On my '06 2wd 5speed, the clutch pedal has quite a bit of side play. It happens most when just starting to depress the pedal.

    When the pedal is at rest, there is very little side to side movement. There is also less movement when the pedal engages the clutch master cylinder.

    Is there washers, or bushings that I can replace to take up the slack?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Well, I fixed the problem.

    I replaced the bushings. That was a chore getting the spring back into place.

    Also, the pedal height was too high. The clutch pedal free-play was about an inch and a half too loose.

    I adjusted the pedal height to just under 7 inches, and the pedal-free play to a smidge over half an inch. The push rod play is about 1 to 2 millimeters.

    The pedal feels so much better, very little side to side play now.

    Was there a bushing kit that you can buy from Toyota. I need to do mine too.

    Yep, the two bushings were less than $5 from Toyota. That's the easy part.

    The hard part was reinstalling the spring, many a curse word was said. But, I prevailed.

    I replaced the bushings with the whole assembly still in the truck. It would probably be much easier to replace the bushings if you removed the assembly first.
