Got mine done last Friday and the alignment too. As a test, I asked them if it needed an alignment when doing this (and I knew it did) and they told me yes, they had to do an alignment. I didn't see the old part but they told me it didn't look that bad. They did tell me my upper and lower ball joints would need attention soon which I could tell from the clunking in the front when I turn the wheel to full lock.

I had put on a new set of 285 KO's earlier in the week and that got rid of all the shimmying problems I had. One tire was cupped pretty bad. I have a Rancho stabilizer that I really like, especially when running 285's with no lift.

Body Damage is Cool

I'm not even bothering to run one right now... Had some goofy trouble with the brackets from Doetsch Tech, finally just said screw it. Gets interesting over one rollercoaster section on I-5 thru San Juan Capistrano - just have to make sure I have a good grip on the wheel. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" />

I put on a rancho, it was about 20 less than the OEM, and it freaks out the dealership...

"this isnt a toyota part!"

Yes


Rancho is the way to go. You dont need the OEM bolt on the center link since it comes with U-bolts.

not to run the topic totally of course, but remember the napa one is lager than OEM, cheaper the OEM and fits all the OEM brackets.

Back on topic.. I have yet to see my letter from toyota. Perhaps a call is in order.

I didn't want to wait for a letter so I printed the PDF file and took it into my local dealership last Thursday. They acknowledge it and did the work, with alignment, on Saturday. They have been doing a lot of them recently and had the part in stock. Dont wait, it may take a while to work through "the list". Brew

Yeah, you're right about the "list". I called on my letter and they said they are doing the oldest vehicles first but he would pass along a "note" about my inquiry.

Sounds like a parts backlog to me; keep an eye on it tho.
