    Guys I have a 2022 tacoma 4x4 I’ve been getting this random intermittent clunk that I feel in the floor board under my feet when stopping and accelerating. I keep looking at my sway bar something doesn’t seem right. On drivers side the bushing doesn’t look like it’s seared correctly I’ve replaced it and tried centering it better but it still doesn’t look right. I’ve also noticed on drivers side it’s very close to the frame and on passenger side I can putt All my fingers between the frame and the sway bar. I have no idea if this is normal or what. Any insight? My truck is completely stock

    Ok without pics will be hard for us to understand what you are saying. Generally sway bar isn’t an issue.

    without pics, you are more or less getting guesses.
    If it's a 2022, why not take in to see if it's under warranty

    I don't think that a sway bar would cause this noise, it might but I don't think it would. Sway bar is connected in front of the suspension. I know you said you don't want to remove but try this. Because it's so easy to remove, take it off and see if the noise goes away. If the noise is still there, then you know it's not the sway bar. Then you can reinstall it and make sure it's centered. Just an idea. Normally a that type of noise would be something in the suspension not tightened. If it happens when in 2 wheel drive, I would look at the rear axle.
