It's funny... the 2001 and 2002 4runners have a ball joint recall... but not the 2000's... hmmm...






Flex!


So... Monday, Ryan, I'm coming to Toyota and will need some upper and lower ball joints, some swaybar bushings and a new axle! Yippie!

HOLY %#((*^..... We've seen a couple fail on the Tundras, but never on a 4runner..... Usually when they give up, the ball actually pops right out of the socket..
We will see ya monday, I will help you out on the prices.... Smile

gnarly! From the cell phone pic you sent I couldn't see all the fender damage! That is no fun. glad you weren't going down the highway when that happened! You should hold onto the ball joint so I can look at it. There are usually ways to tell how it failed... I know I am an engineer nerd but it would be cool to see it.


Well now we can both bitch about broke down vehicles! I will get the 240 running and then you can rock climb with that beast!

Shitty dude, mine broke a few months ago (and the recall had already been done) but lucily I was just letting the clutch out at a green light and it didn't damaged much.....

Nels is a drama queen. I stopped by and saw the rig in the middle of the Zimmerman and hwy3 intersection. Its not as bad as the pics lead you to believe. Its totally still driveable, infact it might even perform better now! Lets just weld everything back together and push the fender back in place with a ball peen hammer!! jkjkjk, good luck man.

besides the obvious damage that 4runner looks badass.. Always liked those rigs.
