This clip is from the newspaper on the Ford recall.

Toyota Motor Co., meanwhile, recalled 978,000 sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks amid concerns over the power steering system. The affected vehicles include the 1990-1995 4Runner SUV, 1989-1995 truck 4WD and 1993-1998 T-100 pickup.

Toyota said a rod linking the steering wheel and the wheels may fracture under conditions where the steering wheel is turned while the vehicle is stopped. Owners will be notified beginning in mid-September, the company said.


Is this the recall for those that have replaced the broken linked discussed over the past year?

Does this affect the 4x2 models or just 4x4?

Call your local dealer and have them run your VIN. They just got notice today to start contacting T100 owners and the relay rod will be replaced at no cost to the customer.

From the above link:

"Toyota Motor Co., meanwhile, recalled 978,000 sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks amid concerns over the power steering system. The affected vehicles include the 1990-1995 4Runner SUV, 1989-1995 truck 4WD and 1993-1998 T-100 pickup."

Looks like all T100s to me.

Ha! Stealership near me still doesn't know about this! They want me to drop off my truck..
I recall that last year, I mentioned the cracked relay rod issue with the Toyota place and they "never had a problem like this. Toyotas are reputable vehicles and have the least recall of any manufacturer" ... eat those words! "and it must be because you lifted and modified your vehicle..." eat me, stealership!
