Left front ball joint failed. Toyota "does not know why". Right front fine. Tried to get the work done under recall, no luck. Has anyone else had this issue? I need others to support the expansion of this recall. Has anyone had the repair work done? The estimate is $5000!

You better get estimates from a different shop as the ball joint cost is $45 to $70 for an AC Delco brand and the labor to replace 1 upper ball joint is 3.4 hours and to replace 1 lower ball joint is 1.1 hour and the truck would need to be aligned http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=3244 and you can get a different opinion from another shop here http://repairpal.com/directory?address=94931&car_brand_names=Toyota
