    i dont think anyone on this thread is bitching about their truck, nor do they hate it. and i think we all expect some some of vibes etc. with a truck, but if a dealer is going to fix it, for free (under warranty) then why not? I think when someone buys a brand new truck off the lot, like i did, they do have a little higher expectations than someone buying used. hell my t100 feels like a deathtrap compared to my taco, but its 14 years old so its acceptable you know. From what I can tell, the TSB has NEW springs, not just the stadard 4 leaf pack. 650h1 has no basis for his earlier post saying its the same fix as before, if it is, show me the TSB or proof supporting it.

    I understand what you're saying.. Trust me. And I'm not trying to be a dick. But go to the TSB list stickied under 2nd gen tacomas.

    There's a tsb for leaf springs
    There's a tsb for transmission mount
    And there's a tsb for the steering column dampener

    If you guys really think Toyota engineered completely new parts then I have a bridge to sell you... You aren't even a little skeptical? Can you at least see why I'm saying what I'm saying? I mean Toyota has already "fixed" this problem 3 times...

    Again not trying to be a dick but when you waste a couple days of them having your truck, and spending money in gas on a loaner car or 3 hrs sitting in a dealership to find it didn't work don't be upset...

    well they did for the rear brakes, i can show them to you. whether or not there are new parts or they just combined tsb's I couldnt tell you. this is the first i've seen a tsb for this specific problem. i guess we'll find out when one of us gets it done. in the mean time, as for people chasing vibes, if it doesnt affect you, why do you care? hope is what makes the world go round...

    I agree with you, i bought my truck 2012 new as well and while i do think i have the vibration i have just dismissed it as of now because it is a truck and really there hasn't been any real cure from Toyota. I guess we will have to wait and see until we get some more info on this. I'm really curious about the leafs and what is different about them. I hope this TSB does work out as i know a lot of owners on here have been plagued by this issue.

    Realistically, this is the first truck I've ever owned that's had vibration issues...

    I second that. Will wait for others to find out conclusively before putting myself through some bs.

    i dont mind the loaner, it usually a scion and gets like 30 mpg, makes up for the trip to the dealer in the first place lol.


    edit: and im not saying i like the scion over my truck, im just saying there isnt enough of an inconvenience to keep me from dropping the coma off

    That's when mine does it as well, which i think is the issue for most. we will have to see what others say who get it done. As for the lifted trucks,if you have changed your leafs then maybe this might not work :notsure:because it seems like its a whole package steering dampener, leafs, trans mount. I wish we had the whole pdf to view.

    I bought my truck new in Feb '06. Since day one I had a vibe at 20 mph (whether accelerating or decelerating through that speed). Once I lifted the truck almost four years ago the vibe was exacerbated (the rear is lifted with the TSB springs and a ToyTec 1.5" TSB add-a-leaf). I then installed 4* axle shims attempting to fix this vibe. The shims eliminated the 20 mph vibe but caused a very annoying take-off shudder from 5-15 mph. I've lived with this for nearly four years.

    Fast forward to about four months ago when I bought and installed the parts for the rear transmission mount TSB. That only helped slightly. Today, after a lot of reading on proper driveline angles (including this helpful thread), I removed my axle shims and then lowered my carrier bearing with stacks of stainless steel washers. TAKE-OFF SHUDDER GONE, AND VIBE FREE! I can't explain to you guys just how happy this makes me!!!! And the irony in it all: 650H1 helped (in a roundabout way) because while I had my rear tires off I replaced some of my marred lug nuts with some I bought from him.

    I now love my truck again! Wooo hooo!

    PM me if you need help figuring out your driveline angles and how to make the proper adjustments. I can walk you through it and give you the CliffsNotes for dummies version ('cause that's what I needed :D).
