    I have no clue on the Tacos, But when I had my 03 F250 it was $1150 at NTB. On my 95 F250 I had in HS, I had it done for about $500.

    But then again, They are big friggin trucks, I had it lifted ECT. so im sure that why the price was so high.

    But im sure somebody else will chime in that has had exp. on this.

    i think its for the 01 - 04 models but I would call the dealership and check. You can go to somewhere on the toyota website and type in your VIN and it can tell you what recalls have been done to your truck and what recalls are out for your truck.

    Check your VIN there. My 2003 had the ball joint recall also.
