    I'm the new dude on these posts and have followed them for many a mods thus far (thanks!). The one outstanding question/worry I have is what I hear during cruising in neutral when going over "bumpy" roads (ex: train tracks).

    Currently I have a 6 Spd Manual 09 Taco TRD Sport. The sound, from what I can tell, comes from the front suspension when I go over bumpy roads when in neutral. When I'm in gear, either I can't hear it over the engine noise (doubtful) or being in gear solves the issue. Has anyone else heard this sound? If so, does anyone know what causes this issue? (It may be just normal operation when in neutral but I hate hearing something that sounds like it's loose in a brand new truck!)
