    Good. And it's covered by the powertrain warranty. Hopefully mine starts making the noise before 5 years is up.

    Unless I'm missing something, this looks like what they've already been doing. R/R with the same junk. I'm still going to have the PDM kit installed next week. Rather spend the $200 and be done with it!

    It says "Changes have been made to the clutch system to eliminate this noise."

    Nice...but I'm out of warranty, so I guess I will just deal with the chirp until it comes time to replace my clutch.

    I see said the blind man! So what to do here... should I get the PDM kit or just try this? If covered under powertrain, I'm good for two more years.

    Still glad I have the URD solution sitting in my garage. Just need to time to install that thing.

    If you're under warranty I would have the TSB done because it has Toyota's name behind it. If there are further problems you can go back to them.

    I would like to do both but we'll see what the dealer says. The sleeve wear being normal is what the PDM or URD kit is all about!

    .

    Yep, that one line in the TSB bothers me a little too.

    A Toyota mech from the FJ board says the new bearing is physically much larger (call it thicker or wider or taller when laying flat on a surface). Plus the fork arm support and slave cylinder are both new items shown in the TSB. It kind of looks like what they're doing is placing a heavier (and wider) bearing in there. The inner race would then be 'wider' to provide more contact area with the shaft. Under a load from the fork it will be less likely to wobble/rock on the shaft.

    Is this the answer for long term reliability in this area ? Who knows, I guess time and mileage will tell.

    Any updates? I just printed out the TSB and plan on going by the dealership with it in hand to see what we can do.
