    ARE tonneau cover, Redline hood struts, Leaf TSB, and Trans TSB, Satoshi grille.
    Today, I went to the Toyota dealership and got my trans reflashed and the leaf paks for the harsh ride tsb ordered. I also made the complaint about the shimmy and slop in the steering on dirt roads which alot of you have experienced. My complaint was noticed but they can't do anything about it because there is no TSB out.

    Everyone here that has that problem needs to make this complaint to Toyota and they will do something about it. Right now they say there is nothing wrong when we know it is very wrong. Lets all make these complaints as soon as possible and they may put out a TSB.

    It's a normal thing.....while offroading...on any street/factory built vehicle.

    You can't have a STIFF steering setup for offroad and still have the sensitivity (loss for words here) steering you need for on-street driving.

    Steering stabilizers come to mind....but unfortunately....difficult to do with IFS/rack-n-pinion setups.

    I'd highly recommend do some searching on google for anything in regards to steering stabilizers with IFS/rack-n-pinion. You might be designing or making something on your own.
