    do fj cruisers face the same needle bearing problems as our tacomas?

    how do we tell if ours will vibrate upon lifting?

    I think he means the needle bearing on the driver's side front differential that tends to make a grinding noise after a lift.

    And no, there is no way to tell whether or not it is going to make the grinding noise if you lift it.
