    2010 DBL Cab TRD Sport long bed
    3/1 Low Range offroad Lift, LT 275/70/17 tires
    Hi all, Just bought a 2010 Tacoma DBl cab long bed TRD Sport with 41K miles on 2 Dec 11. It had a Low Range Offroad 3/1 lift already installed and LT275/70/17 tires that I just put on. I already replaced the blower motor to try and stop the "chirping" - seems to be working for now. Now I have noticed the front diff growl and vibration at 30-40 MPH that goes away when you put it in 4WD. This is my first Toyota. Love the truck but I sure hope I made the right decision here...

    welcome from Aubrey TX! apparently that growl from the front end is normal for some tacomas, and not for others. mine started to growl a little (feels more like the tires) when i lifted it. As for now, i'm blaming the tires because i havent corrected the front end alignment since the lift. I know it will wear out the tires quicker, but its an excuse to the wife to get the duratracks...

    as for the true source of the growl, from what ive heard from this site, it has something to do with the bearings in the front driver side CV shaft, where the shaft goes into the front diff. i'll fix it when it goes out... im not scared to turn a wrench.

    Ive always heard good things about Tacomas. that said, im literally keeping this truck to give to my son when he turns 16 in 15 more years. lets see if it will last that long.

    again, welcome to the site, and i recommend Tacomas to anyone that wants a truck to take a beating and last... look up Toyota truck Top Gear on you tube. Three britts took an old toyota truck off a farm in england, and tried to kill it. set it on fire, drove it into the ocean, crushed it with a building and it still started. Thats why i bought mine.
