Well, in the time that it took me to get the rear axle finished, my inspection expired. It failed the first time because the inspection station said the inner tie rod was bad. I knew the play was there, but it is play in the rack. I replaced the inner and outer tie rods on both sides and it passed. I think they just looked at it and saw that I had replaced the parts. While I was in there I realized my rack is worse than I thought. It has about 1/8" up and down play. In researching it on Tacomaworld, it seems that later 1st gen Tacos had a design improvement to the guides and you can swap in the better style if your rack is otherwise ok. I am going to try to replace this rather than go for a reman rack. Here is the difference. The roller guide is the old style mine has.
