I remember quite a few posts about 12-18 months ago regarding a risk of a cracked weld in the independent front suspension (IFS).

Well, I just received a recall letter from Toyota for my 2001 model (but they don't call it a recall anymore, it is a "Customer Service Exercise").

The wording of the letter suggests that the potential weakness was only in some of the production run, not all 100 Series.

That should get you worried if you didn't get a letter?

Does it apply to 2003 onward models?
Thanks and regards

Can't answer that one David, as letter pnly refers to fact that it was part of the production run and mine was one of the vehicles effected.

Probably need to ring Toyota to clarify I think.

G'day all,

There's a post on the Explore Oz site with lots of information on the subject. I have a late 2003 V8 and it's seen some pretty rough going through the Centre, Top End and our recent trip on "Unsuitable for Caravans Roads" in NSW...(see report on Owners Forum).

Had a good look around the suspect area, and no sign of a crack in the weld.

The Ranger has been told that ARB have a standard package response to this with reinforcing to that upper mount.... And they evidently know what years or Production run require it... You might just check with their State Head Office in Brisbane...
