Default 2004 Taco Frame Inspection??

I just received a Toyota recall to inspect my 2004 Taco frame?
Unbelieveable...

If found unserviceable, Toyota will replace the frame or frames.

My question is:
If I am an unlucky victim, and my frame or frames need replacing, how will
this effect my truck? Steering, braking, etc. because everything will be
out of kilter?

My Taco is a cream-puff, and I would hate to not have it, as it is now.

Thanks.

If it is really "cream-ouff" then you have nothing to worry about.

They were offering to buy back the truck at twice the price.

I have a '99 that is okay. Mine is a SW USA truck that hasn't seen much
road salt or beach salt. The dealer told me that most with bad frames
were from the rust belt states.

My 2002 Tundra was in the same recall. I live in the Canadian Rockies,
and do drive on salty roads, but they found no rust during the
inspection. I have 150,000 Km (90,000 Mi) on the truck.

How will things be out of kilter?

What you should do, if they do replace the frame, is have all new
shocks/strusts/ brakes, etc installed.

They charge you for parts only, no labor on these items.

I was lucky, my 200 failed and they bought it back.
