    My 04's handle has always been wobbly. Bought the truck new with 8 miles on it so I thought that was normal. Now that I work on vehicles for a living I've had a chance to see that every single 1st gen Tacoma I have driven into the shop has no wobble at all.
    How do I tighten the handle in my truck? Is it a bushing like the '65 mustang I had in high school that had to be replaced?
