I can take my sway bar off now right?

I just scored a great deal on a bulk shipment of 3 Star aluminum alloy wheel spacers. I got a 15 pound box of spacers for each wheel and a caulk gun tube of Locktite and they were pretty sure they gave me enough lug nuts to put at least 3 on each spacer.
The Tacoma’s still have hydraulic power steering. Anytime you turn the wheel it will put strain on the engine so the RPM’s go up.
Sweet. Where’d you get those? I want a set. I found a good deal on a rough country lift and I was wanting to lift my truck 33”. Those tires would be great.
I think you could get away with the 3” and do some fender trimming
Good to know. I’ll get my sawzall
The sawzall is your friend
Very true. I’ve used mine a whole lot over the years.
Only as good as your tools.
Whippersnapper02 if the load was the problem then it would happen when I turn on the AC or lower widows but it doesn’t. I have a friend who has the same truck built 3 weeks later and his truck doesn’t do it. Plus if this was a normal thing many other owners would say yeah mine does it too.
Normal. Your friend's truck could have already been on load with the AC because defrost will trigger the AC to dry the air. Electric windows aren't a large enough load to cause a significant drag on the engine.
The fact is that the ECU will open the throttle to compensate for added load. What you described is normal. Going back to the dealer is just chasing a problem that doesn't exist. A few people just said their truck does it. Mine does it and I don't flinch.
My 2017 doesn’t do it because I don’t sit at idle and crank my wheel back and forth.
Man it’s normal.
My scion did it, my dodge does it and all the other vehicles I've owned have done the same thing. The rpm change isn't anything new unless it does it at idle and nothing else is on.(that would be the idle speed sensor)
@petrw just to ease your mind I actually took pics of the RPM gauge to show you: at idle on the left and with slight wheel turn on the right.
You broke it
It’s totaled. Just drop it off at my shop and leave a signed title in the glove box.
will you tow me to the dealership?
