    I would say the white one too. You can see if you have the round or square boot to verify. Call Marlin for some guidance. I have purchased from them and they were very helpful with identifying the correct parts for me.

    Has it always been notchy or just something that got worse?

    Tacomas are pretty notchy shifting trannys. Even my 06 6 speed shifted like crap.

    It will tighten up the shift pattern. Was worth the $12 to me.

    Noticeably worse since I replaced the slave and master cylinders and changed the gear oil to Royal Purple.

    Get em in yet? Just did mine and well worth the money. Mine were not worn much at all at 165k... but the new ones tightened up the shifting very nice, which also make it a little smoother shifting as well. Feels like new again. Very happy I did it. Very easy to do as well. I am running redline in my tranny which helped a lot just by itself.
