    I appreciate any advice you can give. My 2015 Tundra TRD has 157,000 miles on it, I replaced the tires recently and started hearing a loud noise - "road noise" - I attributed to the new set of tires. The noise was getting so bad, I had to replace these tires after about 1 month. Took it in and I was informed the noise isn't the tires, but the read end! Here's my question: Is this a known issue with Toyota? I've been quoted $3,000.00 to replace the entire rear end with a rebuilt rather than used. In all of my years driving, I've never heard of the need to replace the rear end..... Any advice on where to shop for a (refurbished) rear end, or general cost comparison to what I've been quoted would be greatly appreciated!

    I don't think it's a common issue, but 157k on a 2015 indicates to me that either you drove the piss out of that truck or someone else did..

    I would find a 3rd member at a junk yard and do it yourself. It's easy..

    If the increased road noise doesn’t change with throttle changes, ie, coast to accell, then it’s more likely to just be a rear wheel bearing or two, the shop is trying to pad their retirement fund at your expense. Get another opinion.

    Hopefully it is the wheel bearings, a lot easier and cheaper.
