I finally got a dealer to agree that my 2006 4x4 DC (3k miles) has some vibration issues. They replaced the rear brakes and, while there are still other vibration problems, it has helped alot. So, if you have a new Tacoma with vibration problems it may partly be your rear brakes.

A little more detail might help. What exactly did they replace? Drums? Shoes? Cylinder? or a combination of the above?

Thanks

Sorry, I'm not sure. I'll check the paperwork tonight. If it helps...the tech diagnosed it by pressing the parking brake while driving.

Probably a bad drum(s) then.
Don't over-tighten your parking brake. It'll end up warping the drums.

Yeah, they replaced the drums. I don't think I've even had a chance to use the parking brake yet.
