    Sounds like your service advisor is an idiot, try talking to the service manager!
    Tell him tsb-0026-15

    Went in before I knew about the TSB for needle bearing and they said rears trans mount wAs all they could do under warranty and ordered parts. I came home found this thread and and TSB and called to ask about them about it, the service writer was rude and said he can't just order parts based on something I find on the Internet. So when I went back in to have them put the mount in I brought a printed copy of the TSB and handed it to him, they did the mount and said that the bearing was fine and had nothing to do with the vibrations. So I contacted the service manager and he apologized and told me to come back in and they would work on a fix and even gave me a loaner car. they called a few hours later saying rear driveshaft, ordered, few days comes in so they install. Call me and say ok that didn't fix the issue so it needs a front cv, ordered comes in and repaired and tell me it's driving great. I pick it up and as soon as I hit 40mph it does the same thing. So I call back and the service writer says oh there's no way it's doing it the tech said its fine and they replaced the bad parts, I explain its still doing it and he says well the tech drove another Tacoma and it did it to so its normal. And of course I remind him that the tech originally said its not normal and shouldn't be happening. So if it wasn't for xmas the truck would be back and I would be making sure the manager has them do the TSB. I'll update again once that happens.

    Got ya! Mine is an 08 with no warranty. I told them about the tsb. He kinda laughed n said there is nothing for that part. Just the frame and springs. So instead of dealing with the Stealership . i just orderd the bushing from ECGS seems to have good results so far.

    That's a different story. The TSB says it is only good while under warranty. :(

    Got mine in for this and sure as heck Vibe is gone. Dealer was nice as they could be and took no BS to order the part. I gave them the TSB number and they took it from there.

    I don't know why some dealers fight this repair - its money in the dealers pocket from Toyota

    Bug deflector?!? WTF? I could see that causing a whistle maybe... But not growling! And if the smog pump is "growling" it needs replaced.

    :facepalm:

    It's not like they have to admit fault or something....

    Wow long thread...didn't read through all of it but I just replaced the needle bearing in my front diff. I did some searching on tools used and apparently the bearing can be pretty stubborn to remove. Worse yet it can break apart and some of the needles drop into the diff. I rented this tool from Autozone which is a slide hammer with expanding collets. The largest one fit perfectly. Unlike normal slide hammers with 2 or 3 fingers this one grabs the bearing full circle. It came out almost perfectly intact and was pretty easy to remove. I attached photos of the slide hammer set as well as the old bearing after removing it. You can see a slight bit of a bend to the edge of the bearing shell.

    This is awesome! I just watched a youtube video on how this works and it seems like it'll do the trick really well. Did you have enough room for the slide hammer to get it out? What all did you remove?

    What did you use to drive the new bushing in??

    75w-90 is oem oil, there's a diy on draining and filling the differential on tacomaworld. I think it's 1.6 quarts but check the diy first

    75-85 is oem, but it can be hard to find so most everyone just uses 75-90. It's generally not a problem to go lower on the first number and higher on the second. Your going to need 1.6 or so quarts, one quart equals about .95 liters, so it might be cheaper for PVT Pablo to get two quarts lucas or mobile1 or some other quality 75-90 synthectic.
