    So my passenger side hub is alot harder to turn then my driver side. Im sure this isnt normal? My truck has about 143,500 miles and Im sure the hubs have never been cleaned out or anything. So what can I do if anything to get it to turn nice and easy? :confused:

    Oh and where would be the best place to buy a good quality replacement cv axle shaft other then a OEM one at the dealership? :D

    nothing, all stock expect got a OE replacement air filter K&N.
    take off the wheel and see if its anything is preventing from turning. or it can be that its never been cleaned.

    edit: for cv axle, well you can try searching for the toyota oem parts online. maybe their parts are lesser than at the dealership.

    Take the hub apart and clean it up...and lubricate it. They need maintenance just like anything else would.
