    As Per http://www.totalrecallinfo.com there is only 1 recall on your vehicle:

    Make : TOYOTA Model : 4 RUNNER Year : 1998

    Build Dates : 19951120 - 19980228

    NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 02V021000

    Date Owner's Notified: 20020228 Date Received by ODI: 20020118 Date Added to Databse: 20020126

    Manufacturer's Involved: TOYOTA MOTOR NORTH AMERICA, INC.

    Manufacturer's Responsible for the Recall: TOYOTA MOTOR NORTH AMERICA, INC.

    Manufacturer Campaign Number: SSC 20A

    Component: SUSPENSION

    Potential Number Of Units Affected : 273743

    Summary:

    ON CERTAIN 2-WHEEL-DRIVE (2WD) AND 4-WHEEL-DRIVE (4WD) 4RUNNER SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, A COMBINATION OF HEAVY LOADING (SIMULTANEOUS LOADING TO REAR GROSS AXLE WEIGHT RATING AND GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING) AND SEVERE STEERING MANEUVERS COULD CAUSE THE 2WD 4RUNNER TO LOSE DIRECTIONAL STABILITY.

    Consequence:

    THIS MAY RESULT IN A LOSS OF CONTROL AND COULD INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.

    Remedy:

    DEALERS WILL REPLACE REAR SUSPENSION PARTS. ALTHOUGH THE 4WD 4RUNNERS DO NOT EXHIBIT THE HANDLING CONDITION, TOYOTA WILL RECALL THESE VEHICLES TO AVOID ANY PUBLIC CONFUSION AS TO WHICH VEHICLES SHOULD RECEIVE THE REPLACEMENT PARTS. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN FEBRUARY 28, 2002. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331.
