    Toyota had a TSB on the steering shaft. There's a bearing on the firewall (I think) that may be bad.

    What does tsb mean and when i go higher speeds steering wheel shakes. Do you think i only need the lower part replaced

    TSB means Technical Service Bulletin but you need to be under warranty.

    Steering wheel shaking at speed is wheel balance.

    Take it to them and bring them doughnuts and say by the way I have this noise and maybe they will fix it while they are doing the recall.

    Should that becover in recall

    No but if you have an open recall you should take it to the dealer to get it fixed and I was suggesting the doughnut thing to butter them up so you can say hey I’ve got this noise and there is a TSB for it see what they say. They might just fix it for you since you’re already there for a recall and you brought them doughnuts.
