    I hear a squishing, air shock type sound from my brakes before I feel any resistance... its kind of annoying, what is that sound and do you have it in your Tacoma? Mine is a 2010 TRD Off Road.

    This sound comes right from the pedal area.

    It's the brake booster.

    It's normal but it is annoying... esp since my 08 didn't do it lol. Easy fix is turning the radio up.

    Also I'm pretty sure it's only the 09+ off roads, since it has the larger booster for a-track, dac, ect.

    I think I hear something similar in mine also but I only hear it when I pull out of a parking spot in the mornings when I go to work or leave at the end of the day. Yea it does sound like it's coming from down by the pedal area below the steering column. Mine's 2010 Sport...the sound's actually pretty faint and I only hear it if it's really quiet.



    I should've refreshed the page. Thanks for answering!
