    Hi Guys,

    Just picked up a 2006 Access cab with the TRD sport package.

    So far I love the truck.

    I have 2 questions/concerns.

    The first of which is that the truck has a considerable amount of vibration when braking at higher speeds. I would have assumed that it was the rotors, but I put the truck into neutral at about 60, pushed on the brakes, and the vibration seemed to be all but gone. This would tell me that the brakes aren't the cause. I am thinking that its something in the drivetrain? The trans is having trouble with the sudden deceleration? Is this characteristic of a 4wd?

    The other question is that from complete stop, if I let off the brakes to start to go, it seems to clunk into first gear. Is this normal?



    Thanks for your time. Any other advise is appreciated. I am a total newbie to Tacoma's. I was a Subi guy before this.

    Dan

    I get the same "issues" with my 2010 TRD sport 4x4. Since it rolled out of the dealer, I get some sort of vibration when braking at mid to low speeds. Will try braking in neutral and see what happens. Also, when i take off a stop sign or light, once the car starts moving you can feel a clunk or jump, as if the brakes were stuck or the transmission didn't engaged properly until it starts moving or something

    Never put your truck in neutral if you are going high speeds :eek:. It's not your 4wd drive train that is causing the problem. Sounds like you should get your tires rebalanced and get an alignment done. You don't know for sure when the last time it was done when you bought it used. The clunking could be from your master cylinder or the rear drive shaft U-joint might be loose, IMO i would just bring your truck to the stealership and tell them about these issues.
