    The new nut from the dealership did the trick, got the truck back together and in the garage for now. Now I need to find the motivation to rip it apart and take the dust shield out

    So i was curious about looking at different home insurance. so i thought i see what a broker could find they did find a lower home rate. Need to see if its really a deal, but if i tried to loop in auto in they qouted me 2000 bucks a year for a 2014 tacoma no acidents and no tickets i about cried laughing. I currently pay 800 a year with statefarm and they raised my home insurance buy about 200.00 so i been looking around too just seeing what i could do.

    What hasn't been modified?
    Drive it and find where it squeaks.
    Mine did in certain spots. Just take the tire off and bend or pound as needed.

    It's constant contact from what I can see. The angle at which the spindle makes contact with the dust shield pushes it right into the disc. No room to bend it out of the way.

    I'll try and snag some today. To me it looks like there is no space between the disc/dust shield/spindle. It's constant contact between the 3 of them.

    What dealer are you using? Why are they just leaving easy money on the table?

    Well I should ask, are you going in asking for the right service? Don't go in and ask for (insert TSB number here), go in and complain that you have a stumble on acceleration at higher elevations and that every time you turn the wheel the engine stumbles and it stays in 4th gear all the time on the highway. :rofl: They'll know your needing a reflash with that.

    I have American Family for home/auto and noticed a few months back my premiums went up by $50 a month. I spoke with my agent and they told me the same thing- Everyone's premiums went up due to the hail damage claims made from the storm we had 20 months ago. When i told them that I haven't made a claim in 10 years their response was that is based on all American Family customers and the claims "as a whole" that were payed out by the insurance company. WTF?!

    I've also been looking to make a move. Does anyone have Allstate or State-farm and is happy with their coverage and premiums? On a side note, it looks cold AF outside so I think it's time to crack a stout or two :)

    not going in for only TSB - they say they can not replicate. Not sure what their issue is other than they have lots to do and no time (ha - 10 minutes) to mess with it. Won't be going back to them (STW) if I can help it. Like dealing with the IRS - guilty until proven otherwise. Out of warranty - although these T-SB don't apply to the base warranty. Since my Service person whom I known for ever left there I dread even going in for anything.

    yep that is what the T-SB says - but it has to be replicated and they can't/won't do it so they won't flash it. ugh.

    When scheduling my 10k service at Stapp on I25, I mentioned that the truck was hunting around between gears when driving between 40-60 mph (one of the other symptoms mentioned in the TSB), especially where it's slightly hilly (aka the entire front range). When I dropped it off, I mentioned "I heard something about a service bulletin for the gear hunting thing". Got my oil changed, wheels rotated, yadda yadda, and they also applied the TSB. Based on the odometer, I don't think they made it out of the parking lot.

    could take it there and see but I just got what I needed done (paid for) at STW so now all I need is the T-SB, which they said they could not replicate - like Brian mentioned - not a good idea to just go in for non-customer paying work - easy for the dealer to say "can't replicate." Guess I just go over and eat all their breakfast stuff and call it a day!
