#10 of 51 06 double cab front end problem
Jul 10, 2006 (11:23 am)
14k on an 06 double cab and the front end is "klunking" under stearing or when the wheel is up against a curb, I turn the stearing wheel and it sounds and feels loose making a bad sound. Also when under braking it will klunk sometimes. Any ideas? It goes in Friday to the dealer.
Also, dealer said "Toyota has really tightened up on loaner cars" What? 30k dropped in January to buy this thing and no love? Anyone else have this issue?

The recall only covers '02-'04 model years on the Tundra. Your '00 was not part of the recall. Check the NHTSA website for the details. You can look up any recalls that have been issued for your particular vehicle.

Yes I also have the brake vibration problem. I have a fairly new 02. This should not be happening right? I thought it was just because I tow alot so I had the drums turned because they were glazed. But Now 2 months later same thing happening with vib and I am not even towing anything right now. Do you suppose getting high performance TRD brakes this would help? Do anyone know?

I bought my own drilled and slotted rotors and installed them. I also installed ceramic brake pads to reduce heat and made sure my lug nuts were torqued to the right torque. I also sold the piece of shit about 3 months later and bought a nissan titan.

Have they fixed the front end problems on the 2007 Tundra?
I'm considering buying one, but would like to know if it and other problems have been addressed.

My continuing brake problem with my 2002 Tundra (~44000 mi)is summarized at the nhtsa site ODI Number: 10150678 under Component: Service Brakes, Hydraulic. I recognize my problem in most of the prior 20 entries. Didn't discover this forum until now.
Message #6 by tundradude "Both the ball joint and brakes are on recall at Toyota's expense" Can anyone help me further in verifying this statement. I live in the Colorado mountains and experiencing a downhill run is a terrifying experience. Good vehicle for Iowa maybe.
Help will be much appreciated. Larry T.

Andy the repair is covered under 3/36 factory warranty. There is no reason for toyota to pay for your brake problem. It's not like your out of warranty by a few weeks or a a few thousand miles. You are out by 4 years and 60,000 miles. You can pay for all the updates if you realty think thay need to be done. As far as you accident things don't just fall apart I think there is more to this accident then your telling us.I one post you say the wheel fell off and in another post you say the ball joint broke. Then you say the ball joint was ok.

Toyota knew there was a problem with the ball joints on the tundra and the front brakes. They only would fix them if the vehicle was still under warranty. This was on a service bulletin that they sent to all dealers. This should have been a recall item no matter what the miles were on the vehicle. The front wheel fell off because the ball joint collapsed. Go online and see all the other people that are having these same problems.
