    Would you mind posting the part #'s and where you purchased? My frame should be happening soon, and I'd like to do the same!

    The rack bushing kit part number is - 8.10106R, the R designates red. Those are Energy Suspension components and I got them from Amazon. They were right at $50.00.

    I bought the front coilovers, inner, outer tie rods and upper control arms from a guy here in the classifieds. They were takeoffs from his truck and had about 1000 miles on them.

    My 06 is at the dealership right now for the frame replacement. Got called today and was told it needs new rear shocks. Now my truck is lifted. No idea what type of lift. I know it has Rancho shocks in the rear, any idea if regular/standard shocks would be ok to use as replacements?

    My 2005 failed its frame inspection over the weekend at Eastern Shore in Daphne, AL. They never mentioned it to me until I go to pay and I see the remark on my invoice, unbelievable. They have no idea on how to proceed haven't seen one before and said the service GM will be back on Friday and give me a call. I called Toyota Corporate and opened a case in the meantime.

    When my 2000 failed they wouldn't give me the keys back, this time they didn't even mention it until I asked. What have your experiences been?

    Did you purchase this truck with the lift already done? You should post this up in a new thread, and state what type of lift you currently have on the truck. I'm sure you will get responses.

    Yes I did purchase it already lifted. And yeah I have no idea what kind of lift it has. I did post a new thread figured it would be the best way to get a response. Thank you for the help, much appreciated.

    Brought my 05 to the dealer a month ago thinking it would only need the goop treatment since I couldn't find any holes in the frame. They called back a few hours later to say they found some holes so I won't see my truck again for about 6 months. It seems like some people get to drive their truck until the parts come in but others have it impounded by the dealer, not sure why that is. At least they got me a new Rav4 from Enterprise to drive through the Winter.

    After reading this thread I'm worried about getting charged for extra parts. It reinforces my distrust of car dealers. Forgive this question as I'm a Tacoma noob, but why do they change the LCA's and not the UCA's?

    No, Toyota will include these parts. Search this forum and you will find a parts list so you can review all parts. They also need to give it back to you in same drivable / road safe condition. If the Dealer balks - Call Corporate, report the issues and find another dealer.

    I've already opened a case with Corporate since the dealer is totally useless on this. Awful experience stay away from Eastern Shore Toyota

    I don't qualify for this recall, but I'm having my own issues with rust, out west. If your truck's rusty and it's not getting the necessary repair from Toyota, you should log a complaint with these two agencies. It's very easy & quick...

    Got the call this afternoon to bring the Tacoma in on Monday for the frame swap. It's been just short of 4 months since they said it needed a frame. I'll see how well they do. Talking to the service manager on Monday about a new clutch install while they have the drive train out:eek:.

    My understanding is that this time around Dana is responsible so Toyota is using settlement money to do the frames. Not gonna get a buy back

    Toyota got $25 million in a suit against DANA, who no longer makes the frames.

    It's crazy that 25 million is only enough to do ~2,000 frames...
