    I went to dealerships here in calgary when my truck was still under warranty with a handful of TSB's I printed off and was told Toyota Canada does not honour the TSB's. Ive now recently cracked a leaf and was quoted $1800 to change (both packs and shackles as I was told they were rusted out). I phoned toyota canada and was told there are Canadian TSB's and US so in other words I am SOL. If I were to replace with toyota parts and toyota decides sometime in the future to issue a TSB on it I could be reimbursed but I decided to take it to a local suspension shop instead for much less.

    No. I'm not looking for the TSB. I bought a 2 day account for Toyota's TIS. I pulled up the 12/21/12 TSB on TIS. That TSB now is marked OBSOLETE. (Also the TSB was given a 'Rev 1' designation, stating NOT to do the steering wheel damper on some model years).

    The TSB is obsolete - the one you posted is out of date. The one I found was newer (Rev 1) and also marked obsolete. This is not fixing the problem sufficiently. Something else is up.

    $30k pieces of junk we bought. Not that I expect better from anyone else these days. I want my old '92 back.

    Really a shame that the USA market gets the poor quality toyotas as South America gets the bulletproof toyota hilux with 3.0 diesel I see these hilux with over 500,000 km and still going strong

    Yeah this isn't my first rodeo with Toyota trucks. Except every other time, they ran forever with basic maintenance. I keep telling my old man - when he gets rid of his 4Runner, I *WANT* it. 200k+, runs like a champ. 5VZ-FE is less power, but I'll take it. Miss my '04. Miss my '92 for that matter. Miss the '84, too.

    Let's face it - Toyota is either 1) stumped or 2) realizes the problem involves an inherent design flaw that a parts swap cannot fix (at least not a parts swap they're willing to make).

    Hell, Ford and GM treat customers better than this.

    Has anyone subscribed to this thread had the steering chatter TSB done? I noticed mine chatters a bit offroad, but I'm past warrantee and its not too bad. Just curious if anyone that had it done noticed a huge difference. If so I might do it myself.

    Didn't bother, hate going to dealers. I did the 'zip tie' fix. Been in for 5000 miles and works well. Spend $0.03 on a zip tie ($0.06 if you need 2) and consider it fixed.

    I wonder how hard it would be to find the right size and install something like this airsoft barrel center bushing (top right in pic).

    How do you print the TSB off of the list? My truck squeaks first thing in the morning or after it has sat for awhile.

    FWIW today I had my truck in for service and yet again complained about vibes while acellerating and the Toyota service rep told me that basically toyota is now just considering the vibrations a characteristic of the trucks, dating back to 2005. Said they replace and try to fix components but nothing works. Basically I paid 30k for a truck with vibrations while accelerating. I told him it was unacceptable and will be contacting corporate.

    This is most likely a result of torque converter and or driveshaft issues, I am having my entire power train swapped to a toyota 3.0 D4D diesel will update here if the vibes are gone after.
