on the first page of the pdf file
it shows that if the relay rod has to be replaced that they need to do the alignment too, I am bringing a copy of it printed out to the dealer, not that the dealer would ever screw me... or replace the tie rods....

Did my truck yesterday. The charges would have been $325.90 for the work if not covered under recall.

When I asked if they did an alighnment, I was told it was out 1/8 of an inch which is within toyota spec, so no alignment was performed.

Got my letter from Toyota today.

I called my local dealership a couple of weeks ago when this first came out in the news. They had heard about it too and they said they would fix it whenever I wanted to bring it in, whether I received a notice from Toyota or not.

I always feel bad when I read about some of your experiences at the dealership. Can't believe how some places really try to bend you over! I'm always treated very well at my dealership, but most all the guys in the service dept are my 4wheelin', shootin', snowmobilin', beer drinkin', China Buffet eatin' buddies.

Living in a small town helps a lot. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

Who is that Creeper? I might just bring My T up there and have it done (I'm going to be visiting my parents in February anyway). I'm not so sure I trust the dealers arround me after I called on this issue.

And small towns DO rock... I hope to be back in Lander within a year. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Fremont Toyota-GMC, formerly Seamunds Toyota on the west end of town. If you can wait till Feb, I would. These guys have always been really easy to work with.

Hurry up and get here before housing costs get out of control. Since they announced that Lander will be the site of the new WY Catholic College in 2007, (somewhere up near Red Canyon) prices have been going nuts. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" />

Getting the Wheeling Fever
You could go to a dealership to get a dash light replaced, and they'd try to sell you an idler arm with it.

<img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> So true! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />
I don't think I've been there a single time that I haven't been told about my idler arm.

My rig is in the shop today doing the recall. The dealer just called and said they were unable to get the alignment perfect because the Pitman and idler arm need replaced. I remembered this post and laughed in his face (well, ear) and told him thanks, but no thanks. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> But he did say he would give me a free alignment when I fix it, no matter who fixes it. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />
