    I have 01 4wd taco and sometimes when i hit a bump and the steering wheel is just right it pops like there is something loose?? I have checked everything and the only thing i can find is the shaft above the knuckle thats down at the floor inside--you can move it in and out a little?? ANY SUGG

    I had this steering shaft mod done, it helped as well as the tc bushing rack kit. I still have the pops a noises when going slow out of drive ways and such. I believe it is thr steering rack. I got a new one from TG but just sitting on it till I definatly need it.
