    Have 2003 Taco. Just had the ball joint recall done and got a full alignment with it. Alignment came back all green and everything is in check. My tires however are wearing funny. Inside of tire worn down more. Now I am wondering if this issue was fixed when they did the alignment (only been 300 miles since alignemnet. Tires have been on for about 3k miles) but what I also wanted to know is could there be another issue causing my tires to wear funny even if the alignement is all good? Camber/Caster apparently was all within specs.

    Thanks

    No lift/all stock truck.

    Sounds exactly what my truck did after the recall. The insides of my tires wore to nothing real fast. I put on 15,000 since the recall work and now got a new alignment. It wasn't too far off, but enough to eat my tires. I guess once I get new tires I will know if the problem is fixed now. Still on original tires from 7 years ago...:eek:
    Might want to think about a new alignment. Can't trust everyone.
