They reset the toe-in and camber after replacing the ball joints. They don't reference off the rear axle, though.

What state do you live in?


I'm in Indiana. Does that make a difference on what gets performed on the recall?

got my recall notice yesterday. Has the dealer been giving a hard time to anyone with lifts?

I just got my 03 back from the dealer,The recall replaced both ball joints and aligned it. I was told that if a lift was used, It will not be repaired. For some folks, I hope that is not true. I just ordered my lift, after the work was done. good luck.

Just call your dealer - no recall notice needed! Brought my runner in to have them done and left with an 06 taco - beware. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

This better not be true. I'm calling today to have the work done. should I mention that I have a lift? Or just drive it in and see what they say?

It's always better to find another dealer than to try to argue for coverage. Not all service writers are the same <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

The dealership here in Indy, IN told me today that any lift voids all factory suspension warranties! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif" alt="" /> He was a little rude about it too!

My replacement took 2 hours from handing them them the keys to getting them back! I think they did a tire rotation too, but didn't charge me for it.

When I went in this morning I checked my headlights against the garage door, when I got my truck back from the dealership my drivers side headlight was out??? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

I just made my appointment at my local dealer for the recall work. I told them I had a lift, and they said no problem. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

they also said they've been doing 3 or 4 of these a day and have yet to find a defective part. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" />
