Just out of curiosity, have you tried a good alignment? I've had my rear subframe thrown out of wack slightly after a hard track day and had to hit the alignment rack to get everything square again.

It'll be worth a shot - have them check your bushings for play while they're at it to be sure everything is solid.

If you have time, order a set from Amayama.com. It take two or three weeks to get them, but they are about 1/2 price than dealer, but shipping closes that gap but still cheaper.

EDIT: Usually what goes in the toe arm is the tiny ball joint in the inboard end so there is no repair/rebush of that. If there is slack, and usually this is the first place it shows up, you should replace the toe arm before spending money on an alignment. There are also aftermarket options out there that isn't much more than the stock ones from amayama once you add shipping.
