Take a look at that relay rod. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" />
I'm not exactly sure when this happened. I went wheeling a few weeks ago, but I checked under the truck afterwards and didn't see this at that time. I make a habbit of inspecting my truck before I go on long trips, so I would think I would have seen it before I drove 500miles last weekend. I was getting ready to do another long drive today and I'm glad I spotted it. The relay rod is bent pretty bad a few inches from the idler arm. Both the idler and tie rod are rubbing against the frame.
*EDIT* Just got it off and took the idler apart. It's also bent. It's hard to get a good picture, but with lines drawn over it you can kinda see how bad they are.
I am thankful to be alive and well to post this. Always remember to check things over on your truck before you get in!
PS. No, my '86 is not covered under the relay rod recall and this break is not consistent with that failure. But if you have an '89-'95 Toyota, take it in under the recall and have the relay rod fixed before it cracks and breaks near the pitman arm.
