This is without doubt not the news ToMoCo wants to be saddled with as the dawn of their (finally) 'merican sized new Tundra nears. But, what is, is. Seems that the lower ball join on the front suspension has been failing and has caused at least eleven accidents and six injuries. Not good. Some of y'all might remember that Toyota was forced to recall 775,000 trucks and SUVs last May because of similar troubles. Double not good. For Toyota's sake we hope that the ball joints on the new man-size Tundras are as beefy as the commercials they've been runnin' are claimin'. Especially since a fully bedecked CrewMax will tip the scales north of 5,600lbs. Ouch.
