    Bought a 2012 long bed 4x4 tacoma and I need to replace the right steering knuckle, upper lower control arms, inner and outer tie rods, and wheel bearing.. Any ideas on How much all this would cost me or if when i do buy the parts are they hard to install? Always wanting to upgrade if possible.

    You sure all that is bent? Usually it's the spindle that is the sacrificial lamb

    Must of been a big hit.

    If you go all aftermarket it probably wont be more than 1k for everything.

    How long did you drive it around for before you realized you had an issue

    If the lower control arms bent, there’s a good chance the frames bent. Would be interesting to know the backstory on this.

    Yeah but for hella expensive.

    There's aftermarket OEM spec stuff that will serve you just as good.

    And who are these warranty people you speak of? Like Toyota corp? If anything warranty people do the opposite of reaming anything as it keeps them from paying out

    So did you or didn’t you jump the truck?
    And if so, did you tell them?

    Parts are around $700 on RockAuto.
    I’d advise you not to go cheap on the wheel bearing.
    I know this from experience.
    I’d go ahead an throw new dust seals in it too.

    This is like pulling teeth out of a grizzly bear. So, you bought the truck somewhere between 2 days ago and 8 years ago, and all of a sudden you realize that the wheel’s leaned in at the top and there’s no explanation on how it got that way.
