Found this on internet for mine (can't remember where). Checking on serviceablity for ujoints etc to clarify but heard this from another mechanic one day.
noise you are describing is normal for landcruisers with some miles on
them. The noise is drivetrain backlash, while it may not be in
specification 100%, it is fine to continue driving.
Basically the backlash is all the "slack" that is in your system... starts in the transmission,
then you add in the driveshafts slack, them the rear differentials...
all of that combined equals slack that when you let off the gas "thumps
I believe that your driveshaft is not a rebuilable (checking on this)
type (no servicable u-joints=toyota thing) and replacing just that
probably would not be enough to make it go all away.
For 190k, again, this sounds very normal and will cause you no issues.
I hope this has helped, have a good dayAuto Tech Guy -- Friendly Toyota Tech. -- 100% Positive Feedback on 222 Toyota Accepts
