I had some noise and vibration on my tundra 2000 while running. I raised the truck on towers an notice that while testing it, when i press the brakes, the tires stop, but the drive shaft keeps turning. Is this normal, what could be the problem if not?

an alert to all operators of Tundras, or any other RWD Toyotas with LSD for that matter.

I recently had my rear differential fluid changed by an independent "quick lube" establishment. Now this guy is a quality operator and has been in business, sane location for over 30 years.

I had considerable discussion with him prior to getting the work done. I would normally purchased the fluid and do it myself, ( I have always used Valvoline 80/90 GL5/LSD either conventional or synthetic blend) or had it done along with other services at a dealership, but my time was limited, and my truck is 9 years old, (82,000 miles) so I figured they know what they are doing, just pay the $50.00 and get it done on the fly.

Immediately afterward, I started experiencing chatter.....................never experienced it before and it took a day for me to start to suspect the differential.

I check into some forum discussions similar to this one and found the recommendations of the posters to suggest conventional LSD 80/90 fluid ONLY.

I changed it out for the Valvoline the next day and the problem disappeared immediately.

I don't know how the differential knows, but it does.
