    Hello I have 2008 tundra and I just replace my coilovers and went with stock trd 4600 yellow and blue ones from a 2019. Just my luck I put the passenger coilover on the driver side and the driver coilover on the passenger side not knowing theirs a difference between the two. So than I added 2 shims on the driver side to make it even. Just got new tires toyo at3 also and now I have a vibration/ humming going over 70mph. It comes and go every 2 seconds. I can feel it on the floor board very annoyed. Everything is tight. can it be a bad ball joint causing the vibration. It started after I put the new coilovers on.IMG_20201118_202941264.jpg

    So I just make sure it wasn't a carrier bearing problem so I went under the truck and I can move the driveshaft within the bushing it has some play. When I tried to turn the driveshaft theirs no play what so ever just within the bushing. It's weird i never had this vibration issue until I lift the truck around 1in in the front. The driveshaft is not completely straight it looks like it's sinking in near the carrier bearing.IMG_20201120_001009923.jpg IMG_20201120_001154126.jpg

    @Tundra_power maybe it’s the front diff bearing on drivers side. Give the cv axle a wiggle and compare to the passenger side.

    Your every two seconds description sounds like how I would have described my diff bearing gone bad and could feel in gas pedal.

    I lifted the truck I put my hands on the 9 clock and 3 clock position on the tire and it did wiggle alot on both sides but more on the driver side put I can hear the steering wheel shakes inside the cab while I did it. I put my hands on the 12 and 6 position and no movement at all so this leads me to believe it could be the tie rods? Or is this normal..

    @Tundra_power that is the test for tie rods but I believe someone else needs to hold the opposite wheel still. What you described sounds normal though.

    I was talking about where the CV axle enters the front differential in my previous post. Of course I am assuming you have 4wd.

    No I am 2wd. What's weird is when I turn to the right at full lock my driver side goes down alot and when I do that I can feel poping in the steering wheel. Has to be either ball joint or tie rod.. but theirs no play on the 12 and 6 clock position of the tire...

    Oh, I’m sorry. I’m not of much use then. Sounds like your bearings are tight so not sure what else would cause that.

    I mean it feels more of a vibration than anything. I'm not to sure if a tie rod or a ball joint can cause pulsing vibration.

    Maybe double check the rear bearings.

    Also can try rotating tires and see if it goes away.
