OK, that's gonna take some research on my part to make sure I tell you everything correctly. I'll have to get back to you on all the info.
I'm assuming since you have a code 71 that you have a California emission truck, right?
In the mean time, do a Google search for 1993 toyota pickup factory service manual. Follow the links and you should find one online that you can use for free.
You're also probably going to need to test the EGR vacuum modulator, which is the saucer shaped thing next to the EGR.
The VSV's are the small block shaped things on top of the valve cover that have vacuum lines and wire harness plugs running to them. The allow the computer to manipulate the engine by opening/closing vacuum valves to control different things. On a CA truck, this includes the EGR. It also has them for controlling the idle up for A/C, and for fuel cut off RPM. If I remember correctly, there are 2 VSV's for the EGR on a CA truck. Have to get back to you for that one.
Start with looking for the manual, I'll try to post up tonight the rest of the info.

Ye the truck is a california model, and i have also installed a new EGR vacuum modulator unit.
I will certainly look into it deeper, that just may be my problem.

Yup, if you're turning the wheel all the way to lock, as in making a U-turn, and you hear a clicking or a sound like someone's beating under the front end with a ball pien hammer, then a likely culprit is the CV axles.

Appreciate it. Do you know how much that will cost to fix? Is that something I can do myself?

I have no idea how much it might cost. Sorry, by my truck isn't 4WD, so I've never done it. Which means that I can't offer any advice as to how easy or hard it would be.
Do a Google search for "1993 Toyota pickup Factory Service Manual" that should link you to an online manual from Toyota that can help a lot. The 1990 and 1993 should all be about the same.
Also, www.yotatech.com is another board I frequent. Look it up and use the "search" feature. Search something along the lines of "CV axle replacement".
There are MANY people on that board with the same truck/4WD system as yours with MANY tips and tricks for working on them.
Hope this helps.
