    im in Baja Sur. I got my alignment done before I left. I believe the shop didnt retorque the cam nut and it fell out. The only thing holding the bolt in was my skid plate. The rear bolt was super loose but held in by the steering rack.

    I can't for the life of me find the part # so I can call LaPaz Toyota and see if it's in stock.

    I'm in my friends truck heading to another town to an autozone to see if we can cobble something together.

    I found a nut that fits and some washers so I can at least drive the truck.

    It's holiday so parts at both La Paz dealerships are closed.

    We hit up a bunch of junk yards and cobbled together some bolts and washers to get the truck rolling. It's going to be out of alignment and drive all fucking crazy but better than being stuck 800+ miles from San Diego.

    I got it sorta fixed. We're in San Ignacio. I located the part in El Cohon. Only 557 miles away. Fingers crossed this shit holds together.

    Made it to El Rosario. My tires are getting eaten fast! I'll probably have rotate them tonight to make it to the dealership in San Diego. Only 247 miles to the dealership to get the alignment cam bolt.

    Woot! Made it back home last night around 11:00PM. I think we left Ensanada around 6:30AM. So about 17.5 hours to get home.

    We rotated them after about 250 miles.

    I inflated the front tires to 48psi to get them to ride more on the middle of the tread. It also made it pull a little less.
