    Guys,

    Please help if at all possible. I'm about ready to sell this truck because I can't stand the vibration when deacclerating around 20mph and the jolting shifts.

    Does anyone know a way to fix this crap? I had the TSB done for the vibration but it didn't help.

    Thanks!

    they replaced some mount...it was supposed to change the angle of the driveshaft I suppose.

    you may pay around $300, but the tw driveshaft has made many tacoma owners, cause its a one piece drive shaft......no mid angles that you have to worry about. if you install a tw driveshaft, and the shifting is still shaky..........i'd say you got a torque converter problem. but im pretty sure that with a new one piece driveshaft...you'll be good to go. to me........for no vibes and no more problems......$300 aint too bad.

    but why would they design the truck with a 2 piece drive shaft if a one piece works fine?

    well..........for most part, the 2 piece shaft works, and its probably a bit cheaper to make, possibly anyway. not every tacoma has the vibes from the driveshaft, but a good many do. something you could try is unbolting the center support bushing bracket on the middle of the drive shaft and put in a couple of washers to see if a new bit of angle works,.......chances are it wont, but it may be worth a try. i still think the tom woods ds is the way to go.
