    Hello all im new to the site but i figure this is the best place to get some help with my Tacoma . Yesterday i noticed while under slow acceleration or just giving it enough gas to maintain a speed between 20 and 40 mph it will shake badly but as soon as I let off the gas or give it more gas it goes away . its not always the same kind of vibration ...sometimes a slow vibration when going around 20 mph compairable to driving on a washboard road and sometimes when going faster its a faster vibraton. ANY thoughts or information would be very helpfull !!! thanks

    Ive messed with it , it has movement but you have to push and pull somewhat hard to move it ....Is that normal or is it not supposed to have slack at all ??

    Yeah that was one of the first things i checked ...I also checked for worn wheel bearings , suspension componants the only thing i found is a small amount of slack in my passenger side tie rod ....other then that nothing out of the normal as far as i can tell ..My take on it is that its within the transmission , driveline , rear end or wheels it changes with speed and not with engine rpm's.....im stumped....
