I assume by trackrod ends you mean either lower control arms (the only 
front suspension recall of which I'm aware) or tie rod ends.  probably 
the later.

Iff (that's "if and only if") there was no play in the tie rods, and 
iff they can measure the exact number of turns (the tie rod screws into 
the tie rod end by MANY threads, which is how you adjust toe), then 

I, on the other hand, just had both replaced and they did a toe 
adjustment, although not a full 4-wheel alignment.

"They", in my case, was not the dealer.

Pls forward info on the failing tierod recall (if that's what it is).  
I bet lots of us would like reimbursement :-)

Hope Germany was enjoyable,
