    After driving around for a few days i'm a little concerned. There is a sight vibration in the front end that can be felt through the pedals, floorboard, steering wheel etc.. VERY VERY slight vibration. I've looked and looked and I dont see any evidence of rubbing. At first i thought it was because I hadn;t aligned yet and the tires were running uneven. So i get the truck aligned..and it is still happening.. Any suggestions??


    ---also

    there is a little bit of wheel-hop/vibration in the rear end when proceeding from a stop at about 1500 rpm's.. could shims help this?

    Yep. There is barely enough room in between my tire and the tip of the UCA to fit my index finger...that was my first thought but it doesnt visually look like they are rubbing..?

    the reason i ask is because even though You got the front aligned Tacomas dont have alot of adjustment in the camber. Essentially you cant get all the positive camber corrected so the truck is riding on the outside edge of the tire by 1 or 2 degrees. This may be what your feeling.

    Could be. I'm going off of my experience when i got my nittos. I remember the slight vibration your talking about and then it went away after a while.
