Steering Rod Recall

Has anyone brought their truck in for this recall yet? I'm suppose to tomorrow and wondering what it curtails. I relly don't like bringing it in to the dealer. It's such a shock that they recall a 16 year old truck. I have a 89 truck. Thanks

Who all has taken their's in? And if you did, did you receive a letter, or did you just take it to your local dealer?

I took mine in and I never received a letter. I just called the dealer with my vin. and verified the recall and scheduled it. They put all new Tie Rod Ends and drag Link. Everything from wheel to wheel.

funny you bring this up... i stopped by the yota dealership yesterday to ask about this recall, for some reason i forgot all about the recall and found myself behind the wheel of the 2007 tundra crew cab with the iforce 5.7L

supposedly, if everything goes well, i can probably ask about this recall on monday morn when i go pick up my new toy

based on credit approval of course.............

I don't recall the exact wording. Steering relay rod replacement and an alignment. I think was all it called for but the service writer said they would replace the tie rods because they were supposidly frozen and could not complete the recall. Give the dealer ship a call and verify. You may or may nor get tie rods ends.

Nightmare turn Dream

I took my 94 4x4 in for the recall... they later called me and told me that the steering relay is installed but now they cannot align it tie rods are frozen and they are not covered under the recall... the service writer said "it will be 550 bucks to replace the parts needed to align it Mr Pablo"... I jumped on my bicycle and rode my happy little ass up to the dealership and had a few words with the service manager... In the end they replaced everything from tie rod to tie rod under warranty... dont pay for anything related to this recall... they will cover it.... I think Toyota of Richardson is just trying to boost their sales... sneaky bastards


"We tried everything they said"... I looked around "where is the torch, rosebud, and the wd40"... "oh we cant use heat"... "no wonder you cant break them loose"....

I got the letter and scheduled the work with the local dealer near my work. I checked out the entire front end a week before the work was done so they wouldn't try to sell me anything I didn't need and got an inspection sticker at the same time. They ended up replacing the relay rod and both tie rods at no charge and gave it an alignment. I had no issues what so ever. I'm guessing they have to neary destroy them to remove them anyway so they kind of have to replace them. At least in most cases.
