hold on! maby thats why you needed a rack,are you sure the stops are still on the chassis from bank to bank ? you may be turning beyond the max and that will bend the rack as it is just a toothed rod, youll get a tight spot in their

Yea the stops are there. The steering wheel only turns 1 1/2 times left or right before it stops.

Intermediate Steering Shaft #2 is seizing as on most Tacomas, causing a stiff steering problem. Mine is 2008 and had the same problem. When you have stiff steering spray that little universal joint in steering column under the hood with a lubricant. If it frees it up, it will eventually need to be replaced. Most Tacomas on the road have this problem. (2005-2011) Check out Tacoma World Forum. You will find pictures there also, Search Stiff Steering.
