    Hey Everyone! Dave and I both have 2006 Dbl Cab/Long Bed, 4WD Tacos.....
    Unfortunatley, he got t-boned on the passenger side - impact was at the rear door area. After several l-o-n-g weeks in the shop, he's got a whole new set of woes. The worst is the right rear wheel wobbles so badly that two different people flagged him over tonite on his way home cuz they're worried it's gonna fall off! :eek: Checked the lugs, and it's not the tire, it's def. the wheel. They had to replace it cuz it was bent in the accident. They SAID they did an alignment afterwards......
    What i'm asking of you good folks is, what he should be asking the repair shop - becasue they OBVIOUSLY didn't do something right!

    While I'm asking - his gas guage is now malfunctioning. i had a mazda 323 an eon ago and the sending unit went - could the impact have knocked the sending unit in his truck out of whack? Is it possible it's something that can be reset? or is dropping the gas tank the only option?

    We appreciate any helpful feedback!!!

    Sounds like it could be a bent rim, a very unbalanced wheel, or a bent axle. If he got t-boned and they replaced the wheel, I would guess axle problems.
