    If your Tacoma exhibits a vibration while accelerating from a stop, usually felt after the 1-2 shift, which configuration is your truck:

    This is a known issue on a lot of 2nd gens.

    My 2007 did it pretty noticeably but it's minimal in my 2011.

    Is this a 6lug issue? Because mine stock and now lifted with the most "ghetto" way of lifting a truck I haven't experienced this.

    Good question. I was hoping this poll would tell us. I searched "vibration" in the 5 lug forum and did not get any hits. Maybe that tells us something.

    Perhaps. My intent was to learn which configuration(s) experience the vibes. I did not expect those without the condition to respond.

    Lifted trucks tend do vibrate only because after lift was installed everything isnt true'd up and square prior to torgueing up. Any truck in my oppinion that doesnt have week parts that need replacement shouldnt have any vibration at all. If it vibrates something is out of line or needs to be replaced along the drive train or steering components. I have had a 3' lift on my truck and removed it back to stock and have alwys run a MT tire with zero issues. Just my 2 cents tho?

    I had vibes when stock at around 50mph. I installed 5100's up front set at 2.5" and a 5th leaf in the back and now I get vibes/shudder when I accelerate from a stop just for a split second and then no other vibes at all.
