...I forgot about the head gasket recall...

sorry dude but you're really too late, you should have gotten the HG recall done when you still had the 3VZE in there.....unless you really DON'T have the 5VZFE and you're pullin our chains.....AGAIN!! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif" alt="" />

I called Toyota a couple months ago. Got verified and was told my letter was on the way. Still haven't gotten it. I'll probably try to call toyota sometime soon if I don't hear from them. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

well, i went to my local dealership today and they said they'll definately replace the part, but they won't do an alignment!?! aparently they're only doing alignments with the ball joint spacer recal. WTF? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" />

I got my recall letter just this last Friday! Kinda surprised to see that in the mail, but hey... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

Anyway, they did the replacement yesterday and the truck seems to drive better than it did before I brought it in! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" />

I didn't get a chance to ask if the original steering rod was damaged or was on the brink of being dangerous, but I kinda doubt that it was. Oh well! A free part is a free part! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

My 89 4Runner doesn't fall under the relay rod recall. However, it has a salvage title because in was in a front-end collision. I have no idea if this part was damaged and replaced by whomever repaired the damage.

Is there some way for me to tell if my relay rod is one of the defective ones by looking at it?

Re: Toyota '89 through '98 Steering Relay Rod Recall 4Runner, PIckup, T100 [Re: West_Aussie] #628749 03/08/06 08:51 PM
I bought my 1993 fourrunner in October of 2005. Would I still be eligible for the recall? I dont know how that works.

Call the dealer and give them your VIN if your eligble they tell and then order your parts.I recieved a card from the
dealer called them back they ordered the parts then let me
know when they were in.I called them Mon to make an appointment and I cant get in till Apr 21st, so the sooner
you start the process the sooner you can get it done
