    For a few weeks now I have noticed that my truck seems to shake/vibrate when trying to downshift into 1st coming to a stop or slowing down to lower than 25ish mph. When I first noticed it, it only did when the truck was cold. Now it seems to be more often and doesn't matter if the truck is warm or not. I thought it may be the breaks but I have taken my foot off the breaks and coasted and the truck continues to shake. It doesn't feel like an engine issue, but what do I know. The truck has roughly 27k miles and is a 4x2 2.7. Before I go do anything, has anyone else experienced this?

    Thanks in advance!

    I can't offer any solutions, but I'll say that I have the same problem. Mine is a 2005 4x4 5speed. It's definitely a similar issue, but not sure if it's the same problem since our trucks are different.

    I've had mine for about a month now, 83k miles, and it has pretty much shaked coming to a stop (from 40+ speeds) the whole time I've had it. I figured it might be tire misalignment, but it rides very straight. It does it hot or cold, and no real distinction in severity at any different scenario.

    It's really not alarming as it's overall pretty subtle, but any advice would be appreciated here as well. :)

    Warped brakes. The taco is notorious for warping brakes prematurely

    Sounds like the rotors are warped. Beyond that, possible your hubs are giving out.

    That makes sense.. I'll take the tires off and give it a look, but I doubt it's noticeable enough to someone that isn't a qualified mechanic, eh? I'm handy but not great at diagnosis.

    Anyway, thanks for the tip, I'll get it checked out and give an update. Hopefully the OP does the same. :cheers:

    if you lift the tires off the ground and spin them by hand you might hear the pad scraping the rotor. I can hear mine and I know they need replacing but I don't want to pay money to stop sooner...I wanna go fast! :D

    okay I'm kidding :rolleyes:

    I got my tires rotated and balanced today actually. Because it is where I buy my tires, he did it for free. I would figure that they would have seen something wrong when they did that. Next on my list is alignment.

    Could it still be the breaks if I take my foot off completely and let it coast and it continues? Also it seems to be pretty consistent when going from speeds around 2nd and shifting into 1st. Sometimes it doesn't do it, sometimes it is for a second and sometimes it continues until I stop. I'm hoping it isn't something serious?

    I went and had my tires rotated and rebalanced. The issue has not come back since! Go try it!
