I had same problem and turned out to be the u-joints and carring bearing
you have to get under and shake you drive shaft, if there is any movement
then replace those u-joint about $12.00 each one and the carring bearing will cost about $350.00 from dealer. A shop can charge you about 600-900 the change them. There are cool hillybillys and readnecks that will show you how to do it yourself on utube.

The problem is the spline the throw out bearing rides on . If its grooved its garbage . Toyota is aware of the problem thanks to my tacoma . The part is cast and has a defect . They have patched mine together 4 times with a new throwout bearing so they didnt get stuck with the bill . The part alone is $700 dollars and is the entire housing assembly has to be replaced . The entire transmission has to be removed and disassembled to get to the bolts on the inside of the casing in order for it to be removed (new gaskets and major labor ). They patched mine along until my warranty ran out . I spent $2700.00 dollars to find this information out so i can sue my dealership(im sure theres a loop hole) . If you own a tacoma truck assembled after 2005 chances are your spline is bad or defective .. Goodluck .. FU toyota

What kind of Michelin tires did you put on your truck. I just bought a 2013 Texas Edition and noticed a little vibration on Passenger side . They said it needed to be align and balanced. Fixed the problem temporary but it has come back. I will be taking it again tomorrow and glad I found all this complaints on this forum and where to go from here. thanks
#113 of 117 2005 Toyota Tacoma Drive line vibration Fixed
Jan 12, 2013 (9:57 am)
I have a 2005 Toyota Tacoma Crew cab Pre Runner TRD. I had a vibration while driving as well as on acceleration. This started around 40k miles and got to where I could not stand it at 50k. I narrowed it down to the center carrier barring or the U joints. It turns out it was the rear u joints. pins were gone in 2 of the 4. I replaced and haven't had a problem untill recently at 90k. I suspect the same thing. I do use the truck for light towing of a yard trailer but nothing over 3000lbs. My advise is to check the u joints first, You will have to get up close and personal to check each one with a flash light. Simply checking for play in drive shaft my not identify the problem. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info on the drive line. I have 62K on my 03 Tacoma 4x4 extended cab. I still have the vibration between 40-60. When I get new tires this year, if the vibration is still exists, I'll check those u-joints. Did you know that the grease for the u-joints is not just the regular grease they use on the rest of the chassis? Check your owners manual for the right kind.

Yes, that's a very common noise, and it's apparently the ABS doing some sort of self-diagnostic. Louder on some vehicles than on others. Toyota considers it to be "Normal." Yeah, go figure....

I just got a 2010 Tacoma and I noticed the same thing right away. Terrible noise! I'm surprised there aren't more posts about this. This is NOT a noise that just about every car on the road makes, I've never heard anything like it (I'm 38). Is there anything that can be done about it?
