The rack in the steering went bad at 63,000 miles. Had it replaced and the 2nd rack went bad after 1 month. Just had the 3rd rack installed and my mechanic informed me that rack is also moving side to side, there should be no movement! This is a safety issue that allows the truck to "wander" while moving. Because of this I ruined 1 set of tires and had to replace front brakes and rotors twice!
The Toyota Tundra was suppose to be my dream truck. Now, it is my nightmare!
All Tundra owners should have the rack inspected. There should be no movement in the rack, that is, it should not move side to side when all four tires are on the ground.
A bad rack could be the reason you are feeling a shaking in the front end. It could also be the reason your brakes and tires are wearing abnormally.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
