Question about 1997 Toyota T100

1 Answer

Toyota T100 doglegs

The left rear tire on My 97 T100 sits about 2" outside the left front tire. It feels like it is crooked going down the road. I can't see any damage to the frame. Is there any possible cause other than a bent frame?

Hi there ... there are a couple causes for this other than a bent frame. Check your rear springs carefully for a broken one ( normally around the shackle area on either end of the springs). Also check your U bollts that hold the spring to the axle They may have come loose and the axle has shifted. Check the other side of the truck and see how that tire is. if it's where it should be then you might have something going on in the differential ( C clip could have dropped or something let go).

Hope this helps you out

Knocking Noise from Front End Toyota Corolla 2004


Ensure the wheel nuts and Axle nuts are properly torqued to the specification. Lift up the front wheels, place supports under the car and do the following:
- Sit if front of right wheel, slightly move it right and left and feel any abnormal noise if coming out of it. If click-click or Tuck-Tuck sound is observed it could be due to the excessive play in the tie rod end, rack end, ball joint wheel bearing or U joint. Next hold the Tire with your one hand at the top and with other hand at the bottom. Shake the Tire inside out and feel any noise or play. If play is observed, it could be the worn out ball joint or the wheel bearing. Now hit the Tire at the top with rubber hammer and observe any rattling noise coming from near the center of the wheel. If you could listen to the extra noise it could be due to the dried up caliper pins. Grease the pins with graphite grease. If all is found fine, similarly check the left wheel and repair as necessary.

Jumped dip in road at 80mph, now front pulls to right and wears passenger front tire. cannot be repaired with alignment.


It sounds like something else got bent. You need to go to a frame shop and have them measure it up, then it should align.

My toyota corolla has a problem.the steering wheel seems like goin to the left. kumakabig sa kaliwa pag tumatakbo na ng 40 kph above.


The part in another langage is not under stood as I only speak and write English. I understand that your car is (Pulling) to the left. If it goes to the left more with the brake on or changes now much it pulls with the brake on( slowing down) you may have fount end bushing problems. First things first though. 1) the tires are about the same and the air pressure is adjusted correctly. ( putting say 10 PSI more air in the right front tire correct the problem?) putting the rear tires on the front correct the peoblem or change it? Putting the right front tire on the left and the left on the right make it pull to the right? If aNY OF THESE THINGS CHANGE THE CAR THE TIRES ARE BAD BUT MIGHT M=NOT BE THE ONLY PROBLEM AS THE TIRES GOT BAD BECAUSE OF SOMETHIGN ELES WRONG. 2) the alinement is off ( the fornt ( or even the rear tires)) are not pointing straight forward as you desire to go straight forward. You can drive the car froward and park on a level surface get out and (sight) the front tires to the rear ones. down at the ground look across the outside and then the inside of the front tire and look at the rear one. Both front tires should ( sight) to the rear tires and not be noticeable off at all. Most tire shops do alinements and they reconmend them to all those that are buying new tries ( some new tire warrentees are not hounered without an alinement check) 3) the brakes, Drive the car some and then stop and check to see how hot the front wheels are. If they are about the same temperture on both sides and the back wheels are warm but about the same the brakes might not be the problem. 4) tires aree almost always the problem in a pulling to one side or the other problem and these other problems will cause the tires to become bad and it can happen very quickly if any of these problems are real bad. If they are and are corrected then after the repair you may have to replace the tires ( or at least the front ones) to get the pull to go completly away.

I have trouble steering...the truck wanders over the road...i have replaced idler arms, pitman arm, center link, shocks, brakes, new tires, front end alignment, bearings...the right front tire sits...


when the steering wheel is centred, the front wheels should both point slightly inwards.
after the amount of parts changed, i would recommend that you get the tracking checked at a garage using the proper, calibrated measuring systems, to make sure that the steering is set up properly and safely.

Front End Problems


first i would check the tires , are they cupped or chopped on the tread? run your hand over the tread and see if it feels rough and uneven. take the truck to a auto repair shop and have them jack both front and rear axles off the ground, put the truck in 2 wheel drive and run the speedometer to the speed you usually hear the roaring noise, if you don't hear the noise , put the truck in 4 wheel drive, turn off the traction assist if it has one and run it to the speed you would hear the noise. if you hear the roaring noise with tires off the ground, the problem is in the drivetrain, (engine, transmission, transfer case, u-joints, differentials or the front left or right cv halfshafts or u-joints). the older models (97 98) had the front two driveshafts from the differential turning all the time, they engaged in 4 wheel drive from the transfer case and a solenoid on the front differential. depending on the miles you have on this truck, the most likely areas i would look at would be the tires, u-joints/cv joints, and front and rear wheel bearings. thanks and good luck.
