    I checked and that side seems alright. Any other way I can test the drivers side without getting up off all 4? I tried rocking the wheel and spinning in by hand but seems to be only acting up when it wants to

    You sure your mechanic installed the ECGS bushing right? Ive heard if the bushing is driven in too far that causes problems

    I don't know what happened but I towed a boat the night after and it seemed to go away‍♂️. I've started looking towards the rear and driveshaft angles

    I noticed that too. I guess it didn't give you any immediate issues since you didn't report back? I don't really understand why they do that though.

    Only one on the drivers side has the needle bearing. The passenger side has a large caged ball bearing style bearing. So you will be replacing the one needle bearing with the ECGS "Bushing"

    Anyone need the puller tool for 05-15 Tacoma? I did this fix last year and just found it in my garage. Best fix ever btw. Bad vibes 100% gone when I pulled out of the shop.
