    with the info i have gained here im going to my dealer tomorrow to see if we can fix this annoying ass vibe. its been a pain in the ass trying to get my truck in to them and they have been blowing me off on it.

    i have told them i think its the drive shaft angles being off or diff bearing in the front. either way i know for sure something that rotates is outta wack! ill let you know what they say and do. if i had the tools and time i would do this my self but im limited to what i can do. ill update tomorrow. hopefully they are not pricks to me tomorrow.:argue:

    its stock vibe. i havent lifted it yet because of vibes i have heard about. i balanced the wheels at the dealer so they know its not a balance issue. trying to eliminate any thing they can say is my fualt. i have my black wheels setting the garge waiting to go on, but im sure the dealer will try to get out of anything if they can blame anything on me. i going to the dealer in about a hour half from now so we will see what happens.

    well the dealer kept my truck now im in a corolla renter AKA wanna be rally car for a short time lol! really though, they noticed the vibes and shutter i get when stopped and moving. one of the techs said it felt like axle wrap. i told him to go over the drive shaft angles and make sure they are correct.

    when we got back with the truck with them riding and me driving, the tech said it might be awhile before i get my truck back. he also said hes getting another tech to come along and they are gonna try and figure it out. again i told him to check the drive shaft angles. will they? who knows but i hope i have my truck back soon! this coralla is a womens car and the steering wheel is the size of a donut lol! ill post more when i find out what say or tell me.

    oh the tech did say that the vibes are common in the new tundras but not tacomas... that doesnt sound right at all seeing as how everyone talks about their tacos vibrating

    Same problem but I fixed mine with a new driveline since toyota said it was normal. Wasn't to expensive of a fix but I did expect better for a 2012.
