    so changing the T/O bearing is only a temp fix for this issue? my Truck just turned 28K and the first time i have heard this. Should i change this or start shopping for a trans?, as i have no warranty since im out of the country.

    Ok... anyone know the first cost on a new Trans?... really what would you all do? Change the T/O Bearing or buy a new Trans? I assume the T/O Bearing is the temp fix?.?.?

    Right the T/O is a quick fix, wait a few more months and see if toyota comes out with the new trans parts. When they do you will need a new clutch as well. Part of the problem is the stock pressure plate gets weak and puts uneven pressure on the T/O bearing. So wait a few months and just run it as is for now.

    the pdm kit is very nice and works as designed. i have 06 6spd double cab trd and put the kit in mine around 1k miles ago and so far so good. just know that dropping the trans is a labor intensive job and by saying that it took me about 8-9 hours to drop install kit and reinstall.

    After installing the Tranmission Sleeve Kit (TSK) you have eliminated the problem forever! You will notice a smooth, fluid like, feel to the pedal. Your engagements will be smoother. Your clutch will last longer. This in turn, will reduce the wear on your transmission. It will never groove again!

    I installed the TSK and IT'S TOTALLY WORTH IT! Everything he says is true so far. I know I know, wheres' the write up right? Well I should be working on it and posting pics later today.
