    I HAVE HAD 4 TOYOTA 4X4s (1985&88 22rs and 2 t-100s. ) I HAVE HAD A TUNDRA FOR 11 MO. ITS BEEN IN SHOP 2 TIMES FOR VIBRATION AND IS IN SHOP ( FOR ITS 3TH TIME) AS I WRITE THIS. I AM WISHING I HAD MY 95 T-100 4X4 BACK(DAM GOOD TRUCK). BEFORE I BROUGHT THE TUNDRA I WOULD SAY TOYOTA COULDN'T MAKE A BAD TRUCK, I CANN'T NOW.

    Before the Toymota damage control twins hurriedly redirect you to tundrasolutions.com, you can get your answer right here!

    Just have an alignment shop set your front wheel caster to 2.0 degrees. This is outside the factory spec, but helps control the steering wheel shimmy. If your vibration is driveline related, some are having luck checking the straightness by stretching a string along the two piece driveshaft, held in place with magnets. If the vibration is in your seat, there is a TSB from Toyota.

    I have had a knocking noise whenever I start my Tundra in cold weather 30f. Anyone else have this happen?

    Check out post #171. A Chevy loser who owns a '99 Lemonado feels the need to post to Tundra topics. That wouldn't be bad - if he was trying to be helpful - but as you can tell by the title of the post - he is just here to start flames.

    It is a sad thing to see. The worst part is that this loser knows nothing about trucks, let alone Tundras. The fact that he owns a Lemonado says it all.

    I would go to Tundrasolutions. That is the only useful advice in his entire post.

    I have had my Tundra for over 15 months and have been to the dealer several times for a vibration problem. After a couple visits, they talked with Toyota and came up with a temporary solution (albeit a little unpalatible). It seems that when you set the parking brake in the Tundra, at the same time you are adjusting the back brakes. When that happens repeatedly when the brakes are hot, you eventually wind up with over-adjusted rear brakes and out of round drums. The short term solution; don't use the parking brake. A fix it kit has been received by the dealership from Toyota for this problem and it'll be fixed next Monday.

    I have an "01 Tundra, 4WD, and the TRD (what a moniker) off road package with less than 1000 miles on it and have noticed a front wheel "shimmy" on occasion at about 55 mph. There is also some vibration from the wheel at 70 and above, which I assume is wheel/BFG tire balancing. Behavior of the truck is very dependent on road surface. Any help out there?

    harry, alfonso, micheael, and lota -

    on behalf of bama and rwell, i'd like to sincerely request that each of you stop seeking help for your problems here. you're destroying the bullet-proof image they currently have of their trucks. and besides...you're giving all us "envious" chevy owners who haven't had any problems with our trucks more fuel to add to the fire.

    on behalf of bama and robbie, thanks, ;)
