    So it’s been a few months now and both Toyota and Fox say they know of this issue with the new suspension making the hollow thump at low speed when cold and are”working” on a fix. They say it has no effects on the truck but I’ve had to have my alignment redone and it’s not to it’s first service yet lol. I’m kind of shocked they not sort this sooner. I know most of you aren’t in cold places like I am but how many others have had this issue?

    Was this a standard feature on the TRD Pro, or did you guys have to pay extra for it?

    Sorry, just being snarky. Hope they find a fix for it.

    Are you saying that the fox suspension caused the need for an alignment?

    I’d say the alignment went off very fast after it started and to the same side thatbthe shock is having the issue so then saying it’s doing nothing I finding hard to believe. Ya alignment goes off but a new vehicle not even to a maintenance yet with a shock issue on only one side make it look a bit dodgy to me when they say oh it’s nit effecting anything. Fix it and move on as they should I say

    Fox makes some good stuff but it seems every time they have an OEM offering it’s a cheap version with sticker bling.

    And I was waiting for someone to say that. I’ve checked everywhere as well and can’t find nothing on it. Hence me posting here. Toyota says it’s a field tech knowledge only and since only 3 reported problems all in my state and one over they aren’t posting it due to most people not noticing it. It’s got me very angry the way they are handling it. I’m thinking it’s due to most fools making them concrete queens and not using their rigs and most are not in the colder temp states. I run my rig proper and am a fool for every noise but you can even feel it in the floorboards on the passenger side. I have a case open at Toyota level and check every week on it.
