2005 – 2009 Tacoma Body Type(s): Access Cab, Double Cab, Regular Cab Drive Type(s): 2WD, 4WD Engine(s): 1GR, 2TR Transmission(s): 6MT, 5MT, 5AT VDS(s): JU62N, KU72N, LU42N, MU52N, NX62N, PX42N, TU62N, TX62N, UU42N, UX42N Introduction Some 2005 – 2009 Tacoma vehicles may exhibit a squeak noise coming from the rear suspension when traveling over bumps or rough road surfaces. The squeak type noise maybe caused by the rear leaf spring pads. A newly designed leaf spring silencer has been made available for this condition. Silencer Pad Procedure NOTE Perform the following procedures on both the RH and LH sides of the vehicle. Rear Silencer Pad Replacement 1. Place the vehicle on a lift. 2. Using a pry bar, separate the two main leafs, allowing access to the spring silencer pad installed on the lower leaf of the spring pack. CAUTION Be careful NOT to scratch the spring surface with the pry bar, pick, punch, screwdriver or other tools. 3. Use a pry bar as a wedge to hold the leaf springs apart. 4. Use a pick, punch, or screwdriver to push upward on the spring silencer pad from the underside of the spring pack through the access hole. 5. Push the spring silencer pad up high enough to remove it from the spring assembly. Applying light pressure to the back of the silencer pad will be enough to “pop” the pad out of position. 6. Using brake clean or equivalent, completely remove all grease and dirt between the leaf springs. NOTE Remove all grease and grease residue as the new silencer pad employs a self lubricating surface. DO NOT APPLY GREASE TO THE PAD AND SPRING SURFACE. 7. Index the new spring pad so that the locating tabs are facing away from the center of the leaf spring. Using a screwdriver or a pick, center the silencer pad in the hole in the leaf spring. 8. Install the spring silencer pad in the leaf spring pack carefully. It might be necessary to use another pry bar to “seat” the silencer pad into the mounting hole on the leaf spring assembly. Front Silencer Pad 1. Using a pry bar, separate the main two leafs, allowing access to the spring silencer pad installed on the lower leaf of the spring pack. CAUTION Be careful NOT to scratch the spring surface with the pry bar, pick, punch, screwdriver or other tools. 2. Use a pry bar as a wedge to hold the leaf spring apart when removing the spring silencer pad. 3. Use a pick, punch, or screwdriver to push upward on the spring silencer pad from the underside of the spring pack through the access hole. 4. Push the spring silencer pad up high enough to be able to remove it from the spring assembly. Applying light pressure to the back of the silencer pad will be enough to “pop” the pad out of position.

Removal 1. Raise vehicle on hoist. Refer to Section 00-02. 2. Remove rear wheel and tire assembly. 3. Remove rear stabilizer bar link and bushing link nuts at both ends of rear stabilizer bar (5A772) . Rotate bar up and out of the way. 4. Disconnect parking brake rear cable and conduit (2A635) at rear disc brake caliper (2553) . 5. Install three Rotunda Spring Cages 086-00031 or equivalent to rear spring as follows: a. Install one spring cage without an adjuster link to the inboard side (the innermost “bend” of the rear spring (5560) ). b. Install two more spring cages, with adjusters, at 120 degree angles to the previously installed cage. Spring, Rear 6. Place a transmission jack or suitable stand under the rear suspension arm and bushing (5500) as far outboard as possible. 7. Support the rear wheel knuckle (5A969) assembly by wiring the rear suspension arm and bushing to the body. 8. Remove lower rear shock absorber mounting bolt, washer and nut. 9. NOTE: Rear suspension arm and bushing must not be lowered until pivot bolts are loose. Do not attempt to remove plastic cap on front pivot nut. Loosen both inboard pivot bolts on rear suspension arm and bushing . 10. Remove two bolts and nuts retaining rear suspension arm and bushing to rear wheel knuckle . 11. Lower the rear suspension arm and bushing by lowering jack. Ensure spring cages properly seat on rear spring as rear suspension arm and bushing is dropped. 12. Remove jack, lower rear suspension arm and bushing down fully by hand and remove rear spring with cages in place. 13. Remove rear spring center mounting insulators (5741) , if necessary. 14. If spring cages are to be removed for installation on rear spring , use Coil Spring Compressor D78P-5310-A or equivalent to compress rear spring and remove cages. Rear spring center mounting insulator should be installed on rear spring before installing rear spring in tool to prevent slipping of plates.

Removal 1. Raise the vehicle on a hoist. 2. Remove the front wheel and tire assembly. 3. CAUTION: To avoid damage to the 6mm drive hole in the front stabilizer bar link ball stud, do not use an Allen wrench to break loose or tighten to final torque the front stabilizer bar link-to-front shock absorber nut. Remove the stabilizer bar link retaining nut and disconnect the link from the strut. 4. CAUTION: Do not allow the halfshaft to move outboard. Over extension of the CV joint may result in the separation of internal parts, causing failure of the joint. Remove the strut assembly-to-steering knuckle pinch bolt. If required, slightly spread the steering knuckle to ease the removal of the strut. Pry down on the lower control arm and roll the strut base out of the knuckle. Do not pry on the halfshaft, as damage may result. Wire the steering knuckle up to prevent the halfshaft from moving outboard. 5. Partially lower the vehicle. 6. Support the strut assembly and remove the top three mount-to-strut tower nuts. Remove the strut assembly from the vehicle. 7. CAUTION: The strut assembly is under spring tension. Attempting to disassemble the strut without properly compressing the spring can result in injury. Using a suitable spring compressing tool, slightly compress the strut spring to relieve initial tension. Loosen the upper rod nut. Continue to compress the spring until the tension is relieved. Remove the upper rod nut. 8. Remove all upper mounting parts, coil spring, and coil spring isolators from the strut and save them for reassembly. Carefully note the position of each part during removal to ensure proper reassembly. Inspect each part for wear and damage as it is removed. Installation 1. CAUTION: The bearing and seal assembly is press-fit onto the upper mount. The mount washers must be installed in the correct orientation. NOTE: Be sure to check the spring insulator for damage before assembly. If the outer metal splash shield is bent or damaged, it must be carefully bent back, so it does not touch the locator on the bearing and seal assembly. NOTE: New gas struts are shipped with the rod in a locked down position. To extend the new strut, remove the external tie down and/or rotate the upper end of the rod, counterclockwise. Install the coil spring insulator, coil spring, and upper mounting parts to the new strut assembly. Make sure the spring is correctly seated in both spring seats.

Suggested Tools: Floor Jack Jack Stands (2) Sockets: 12mm, 14mm, 15mm Socket Extensions Spring Compressor Installation Steps – FRONT SPRINGS 1. Jack the front of the car up, and support with the two jack stands. 2. Remove both front wheels from the vehicle. 3. Using a 15mm socket, remove the bolt from the lower tie arm: 4. Using a 12mm socket, remove the bolt holding the brake line in place: 5. Using a 15mm socket, remove the bolt from the lower strut clamp. 6. Using a 14mm socket, remove the bolt from the lower front sway bar linkage. 7. Support the bottom of the axle so the strut does not fall down during the next step. 8. Remove the 3 14mm strut mount bolts from the top of the strut tower, under the hood. 9. The strut/spring combo can now be removed from the vehicle. Use the spring compressor to allow the removal of the stock spring from around the strut. You will want to space the spring compressor at least 3 coils between the upper and lower “hooks” of the compressor to make sure you compress the spring enough. 10. Safely remove the compressed spring from around the stock strut and uncompress the spring slowly and evenly. Repeat steps 3-10 on the other side of the car. Installation of Aftermarket Springs 11. Compress the new spring and place over the stock strut. 12. Install the stock strut/spring “Cap” and make sure to line up one of the upper boltholes with the “bracket/clamp” plate on the bottom of the strut. This is key, as the strut will not reinstall if not done properly! a. Torque the nut onto the center strut bolt as much as possible, using a pair of pliers to hold the center post still and a wrench to turn the nut. If you don’t hold the center post still, it will spin with the nut as you get closer to the bottom. You should have 2-3 threads showing if you have tightened down all the way. b. Slowly uncompress the spring and make sure everything remains lined up, including the bottom of the spring. 13. Set the wishbone on the axle. 14. Insert the strut into the car then secure the top (3), 14mm bolts through the top of the strut tower. 15. Insert the bottom of the strut into the wishbone making sure the bottom of the strut lines up properly.
