detailing your taco...

Take it for what its worth...unless these evaluations have cost you a good amount already, no one is going to give you a complete inspection on a 300k mile + truck for nothing.

It has been said before. Intermittent symptoms are the most difficult to diagnose.

Basically, if it don't happen when in the mechanics hands, then how can they diagnose it?????

I agree with tacojoel. You've let problems slide for way too long. Now, you are faced with a series of troubles that easily domino onto each other.

This is precisely why I have replaced BOTH cv axles when only one showed signs of failure. And front wheel bearings. And inner/outer tie rods. And rotors/pads/calipers. Yes, the cost is more, but I know those components are good for another 100 Kmiles. In all total, my spend was below $1000.

Stepping over dollars to pick up pennies is not a successful path.

Good luck getting things sorted out.
axles were only noticed bad when i got under to change oil and filter and saw a big messy... it was a fast one for sure
thot it was engine oil at first from leaky valve cover gasket draining in the back but it was not that at all
i trust in their expertise + experience to have seen it all before and a good knowledge of how everything works and go from there
this stuff does a wonder on that taco frame
makes it all deep black with a purty smell right after application
