    Hello tundra family, I have a 07 tundra 4.7 I'm having a bad vibration in the steering wheel and a load sound that sounds like a truck with knobby tires going down the road when im breaking. It happens usually between 40mph and 30mph. I have newer break pads and cross drilled and slotted rotors also I installed a toy tec boss coil over lift about 2 mouth ago. Don't know if any of these could have a roll in this issue? A friend had suggested to check the hubs and bearings by checking for play in the wheel didn't seem to have any play. If anyone can help would be greatly appreciate.

    Lift tire off the ground. Wiggle tire at 3 and 9, if there is play look into steering components. Wiggle tire at 6 and 12, if there is play look into upper and lower ball joints. Either has movement look at the hub.

    As already mentioned have the tires been road force dynamic balanced? Most shops do a simply static balance because its quick and most of the time will suffice.

    You mentioned during braking, could be judder. Rotors showing signs of heat? Any discoloration? Pad wear seem normal? Truck pull any direction over the other?

    Where and what kind of brake components did you purchase? Come with a warranty or any kind?

    What is the age and condition of your tires? Balance is typically the issue for what you describe.

    Limmo tint on all 3 rear windows, 20% in front two. 18" black ballistic rims with nitto tires Bike bar in the bed for my dirt bikes..
    mud caked up on the inside of your rim will cause that too.. check ballanced tire pressures in all four tires.. if one is low it will not rotate as well as the others..
