    Thanks man, great write up.

    I read through the service manual and had a general plan together, but it's great to see it.

    Bearing on the RR started making noise at 59k miles, Like an idiot I left it go until the truck lapsed the 60k warranty. So with 62k on the truck and the bearing noise really evident, I talked to Toyota. To their credit, they were willing to split the repair bill 50/50 but only if they did the work.

    I tried to cut a deal for just the parts - but no dice.

    The quote to replace the bearing was $946.00 - I'm thinking I can get out of this for under $475 for sure.

    At any rate should be tackling this over the next week or so - I'll let you know how it turns out.

    Thanks again for the help!
