My son was out running around in the snow tonight and managed to bang the old 4Runner into a curb pretty hard. Now the alignment is way off. You can see that the left front wheel is turned outward.

Had a quick look under with a light. It is dark and a bit cold here right now. Looks like he bent the knuckle arm that the outer tie rod attaches to.

Looking online at parts diagrams, it looks like that is a piece that just bolts onto the knuckle and therefore should not be all that much of an issue to swap out.

Am I right about it just being a bolt on part?

It does appear to be a bolt-on part according to a Factory Service Manual diagram.

Body Damage is Cool
I had the entire assembly for each side, up until 2 weeks ago. I had the pleasure to disassemble everything. Yes, it bolts together, and those bolts are really, really, really, really, REALLY tight... Just letting you know. Your best bet may be a junk yard on this one. Good luck!

Yep, 2 bolts and they come off. I had to use a giant breaker bar... impact wouldn't do them... they are covered in red loc-tite... make sure to re loc-tite on installation!!!
