Need help..left front axle

Hey guys,newbee here been lurking for a while
Just got back from my 10000 mile oill change and dealer says my left front axle is blown
I have a pro comp 3/1 nitro leveling kit and they are blaming that!!
says its going to be around $750 to replace
its 2012 4X4 platinum crewmax
do I remove kit or just fix and hope for the best
they did show me all the greace around the cv boot
any & sugestions would help
do I go to garage to get a better price or have dealer do work
Don't really have the extra $$$$ rite now but need to get fixed
Please chime in

THanks

Need help..left front axle

There is a tsb to repair the front diff. Tsb calls for replacing the left front axle in the process. Find the PDF file for the front diff and read it. Print it off and throw it in their face. Should be fixed under warranty. Find a different dealer.

Need help..left front axle

By the way, had the front diff tsb done on my truck last summer. I had a lro 3/1 lift on mine at the time and it was fixed under warranty. I noticed the tsb called to replace the front left axle. Sure enough when I got my truck back I looked underneath and could tell there was a brand new axle shaft only on the left side.

If you end up having to buy axles let me know, I will try to give you the best deal. I have 4 sitting in the garage. Two off my truck that I replaced when I installed my long travel kit with 40K miles and two refurbished ones I had for the long travel kit but decided to go with a set of RCV Performance axles instead.

Tundra TSBs (Generation 2, 2007, 2008, 2009...)

Go to post #3

TSB 0121-08j

Sorry, I was probably a little misleading with the tsb. Looks like it is a tsb for 2007-2008 models. And the tsb calls to replace either axle upon inspection. Mine was just the left. But still, that should be covered under warranty. I can't believe they are pointing the blame on the lift. It looks like yours is a 2012 platinum. You payed a pretty coin for that and they should take care of you. Thats just good business. If they won't warranty that, I would find a different dealership. Thats BS.
