    Just recently got a 2000 tacoma . i know when i installed my blocks on my Silverado they had to go one way. The guy that did the intall on the yota has one way and the other different. My question is which side faces the rear? The fatter part of the skinner part?

    Canada, just south of Santa
    Vehicle:
    98 tacoma 4x4 extended cab
    5100's all around, 2 inch lift, polyurethane body mounts, gibson exhaust, variation of the deckplate mod, intake resonators removed
    Fatter part of the block should be at the back, it is tapered to allow for correcting the driveline angle.

    Just another thought, if you still have a clunk after you correct the blocks, you may also have a bad U-joint, try to grab the driveshaft at each U-joint and yank it around to see if there is any play, there shouldn't be.
