    Hi Guys, 2007 double cab prerunner, auto trans 51,000 miles on the clock.
    Here is the issue. I’m noticing a very slight shudder out of the drive train when I start out from my drive way in drive. It seems to have started with in the last two weeks

    I’ll be crawling under the truck Friday afternoon to have a look at the drive train components, what should I be looking for worn U-joints, slop in the drive shaft?

    Ideas on what to look for or what you have found will be helpful.
    Thanks, Larry

    When was the last time you lubricated the grease zerks on your driveshafts?

    You have a PreRunner so your u-joints are sealed they cannot be greased. Do you have a LSD ? Crawl under and look at your diff fill hole, look for a silver and red sticker that says "ONLY LSD OIL". Could be your LSD binding.

    Yes I have LSD, Is it time to change out the fluid already?

    Any other ideas before I start crawling around under my truck this afternoon?

    Under normal driving conditions you should change your LSD fluid every 30k miles, if you tow it should be changed every 15k miles. To avoid any problems use 80W-90 non-synthetic hypoid GL5 gear oil and one tube of LSD additive.

    I had the same problem on my 07 DC. Have 37K on it. I do pull a motorcycle trailer sometimes. I had my Rear diff "serviced" at the dealer when they did the gas pedal recall work. All they did was drain and refill the LSD fluid. The vibration is gone now! It's smooth as silk.

    Since it was at the stealership, I assume it was Toyota spec products. It says on the invoice, 80W90 "gear oil" and LSD "additive"

    Not sure...it does not mention. It is the LSD additive. Maybe they come in 2oz tubes? I guess you could call the parts dept and see if they sell it there and ask what the size is? Not sure if there is a standard for LSD additive.

    Just called the Toyota dealer. They said it is a 4 oz bottle. He thought that one was the norm, not sure why they put two in mine. Apparently it is a GM product. They sell it in the parts dept...

    I was having problems with vibration, too. Went into to get the steering TSB done and found out that my rotors were warped.

    Check that first, because this is the second time that my rotors have warped like this.
