In extreme cases, if the vehicle is continuously operated in this condition, the lower ball joint may separate from the knuckle and could cause a loss of vehicle control.

Suspension — Front — Control Arm — Lower Ball Joint

Summary
On certain trucks and mini vans, due to possible improper finishing of the front suspension lower ball joint, some ball joints may experience an incidental deterioration of the internal lubrication. This may cause the ball joint to wear and loosen prematurely, which could result in increased steering effort, reduced vehicle self-centering, and noise in the front suspension.
Actions
Dealers will replace the front suspension lower ball joints. The recall began on February 28, 2007. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
