    Hey guys,

    My truck has the vicious front end growl and its getting pretty bad lately. I havent been on this forum in a while and I now see that ECGS makes a tool and bearing replacement for our trucks. I am glad this problem is getting fixed. Does anyone near the temecula area have any experience with replacing their bearings. I do not have the right tools for this job, nor the experience. Any fellow tacoma owners willing to lend a hand for this type of job? Thanks in advance, and I appreciate your help.
