    Just got my 09 DC 4x4 6speed manual SR5 taco about 2 weeks ago. So glad to have a toyota again after my 85' toyota got stolen about 3 years ago. It almost felt like I was driving my old toyota when I went to release the ebrake and saw that they kept the same design after all these years. But anyways, I have been driving with the stereo off and the windows down just listening to the truck and the noises it makes, trying to figure out what is normal. Anyways I noticed that when I turn the steering all the way to either the left or right, and I mean all the way untill it doesnt turn anymore, I hear a kinda clunk noise if I go over even the smallest bump. Is this normal or should I take it to the dealer to get checked out?

    What you are describing sounds normal. When you get a chance, take a look under the front end. You'll see the steering stop is a piece of solid steel. I believe this is the clunk you are hearing when you go over a bump at full lock.
