    Toyota got screwed in that on both ends. But so did a lot of us, too.

    I noticed your list included upper control arms. Did they offer those up? Or was that another battle?

    the dealer busted the upper control arm bolts when they were taking them off the old frame. dealer blamed the rust. shocking, i know. they replaced them, no issue, no fight, no asking. It just took 6 weeks to get the parts.

    just heard back from my friend Danica. They are also going to pick up the cost of my transmission output shaft seal. 13 bucks. woooo.

    Well I got the call today, truck is done. Had to get rear u joint replaced and driver's side rear axle seal fixed but one that before it went in for the frame. It has been at the dealership since last Friday. Will pick it up tomorrow and report back with outcome. So almost 7 months from it failed to replacement. Will see how it goes.

    Hello again, I just got home from picking up my , all I can say is WOW! What a difference, truck rides like new, had a bad rear U joint, now I know it was really bad, no more vibrations at any speed. Yes, I had to get new rear shocks. With the truck being lifted and all I never knew it was this quiet. As of now, great experience and really good service provided by my dealership.

    They didn't say after the inspection, so we'll see when they start taking it apart on Monday. Like 81shark said..."let the dealer break it, get new parts" :woot:. The shocks aren't leaking so they should be okay. Will post more info on Monday:confused:

    It's not that the shocks leak...it's that they damage them taking them off.. the bushings are seized on the bolts. Also I'm sure after numerous yrs and miles, most are blown too.

    Brought my '08 (125k) in this morning for inspection. Got the call a few hours later, frame had some perforation on front left portion and failed. Still safe to drive apparently and new frame was estimated to be in around Feb/March.

    Well, I guess I spoke too soon. Partly my fault for not doing a more detailed check up of the truck when I picked it up, today almost fucked the engine up, fuckers forgot to reattach the clamp to the main cooling hose going into the block and came off today, got coolant all over the place and a big mess, luckily it was right in my driveway after taking the truck around the block once. Good thing I had not gone anywhere far or would be really screwed.

    1st post here. I was on a four month waiting list just for inspection (scheduled in oct pushed to feb). I have a 3"x1" hole in my frame. Was driving by another dealer, saw several rusted frames and 4 new one sitting in back, so I thought I'd talk to the service mgr. They inspected it, failed it, took pictures, and submitted to toyota right on the spot. Said it'd be about 3 months for the frame to come in.

    I have a 2006, 4.0 L, 4x4, TRD/off road pkg, 80K miles. I am planning on replacing the exhaust (cat-back), shocks (bilstein 5100), and coil springs. Not sure which springs to pair with the bilsteins. I'm looking for a good ride, don't do intentionally do much off roading. Any suggestions?

    Welcome to TW Beagles. A lot of information and good people here. Why are you going to replace exhaust ? Going with an aftermarket system ? Unless you're going with an aftermarket system there is really no reason to replace the exhaust, the OEM's last forever. As for the front coilovers, just stick with the stock TRD 4600 Bilstein's. IMO I would go with 5100 Bilsteins on the rear.
    Take a look in the 2nd Gen Market Place for a set of new takeoff coilover/shocks and save yourself a pile of cash.

    I just had my frame done and bought new take off front coilovers, upper control arms and inner/outer tie rods for $250.00 from a guy here. They had 1000 miles on them. :D

    Thanks for the input, Tinker. If the OEM exhaust will last me another 10 years or so, I'm all set. Right now there's just a bit of exterior corosion on the muffler and tailpipe. Never have checked out the market place here (what a F*&*ing newbie). At 80K miles, the only thing my truck has needed is the regular maint..

    I just want to take advantage of the chance to replace anything at the parts only price while I have the chance. Anything else anybody can think of, let me know.
