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="" />


the alignment should be done on both (ball joint and relay rod recalls)

i must say, it was an awsome thing getting two letters in the mail in december... 1 for my 90 pickup 4x4, and 1 for my 90 4runner 4x4 sr5.
-pickup- you all shoulda seen the face on the guy at the dealership when i pulled into the dealership with my truck and he seen the odometer... and i already knew my steering was shot dew to a jump earlier that month over a road lol. long story short the truck got over 2 grand into for free. on a 412,000 mile truck!
-4runner- wasnt even on the road! bought it for the motor, used a 1 way plate to get it home. it's nickname is "tetnus" well called the dealership and said "you guys wanna pick it up?" and since i was less than a mile away, they actually did! the guy that came over to get it looks at me and said " has this EVER been washed? or is it just a winter ride?" 44s cant be good in the snow!"(my 85)
anyways toyota is obviously the best customer treating company in my oppinion. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/butwiggle.gif" alt="" />

I got mine done this weekend. They set the toe but not the camber. Bottom of my tires are definately angled in. It looks like an old Beetle. So now I have to get it aligned on my own dime. Oh yeah - they noted that my idler arm had play but wanted $307 to repair it. I'll get one at Autozone for $90 thankyou very much.

They are required to give you a full alignment. I'd go back and speak with the service manager.
