I have a 2010 DCLB 4x4 Sport that I bought in March from Jeff Hunter Toyota in Waco, TX. They were good to me on the price of the truck and they were fair to me on my trade. The very next day, my co-workers wanted to ride in the new truck to lunch. I had four passengers and the first bump I hit made the suspension bottom out. I later had a few loads in the bed of the truck which made the harsh ride that I saw several posts about. Shortly thereafter, I had to go to Maryland for three months for training and didn't want to deal with a dealership that I didn't know. As soon as I arrived home, I called the salesman that sold me the truck and explained to him the issues that I was experiencing and informed him of the TSB for the rear springs. This particular dealership is 70 miles from my home and I told him that I wanted to bring the truck in one time for the repair. I didn't want to take the truck to them to tell me to bring it back. He said that is fine, he will get with the technician and will get back to me. One week later the technician calls me and says he has all the parts in and is ready to conduct the repair. I told him I couldn't on the day that he wanted because my wife's car is in the body shop for repair as well and that we are dealing with one vehicle. He then tells me to let him know when it is convenient for me to bring it in. Ten minutes later the salesman calls and says that it is all set up, and to bring it in. I tell him that I can't because of the situation with the wife's car. He says no problem, I'll give you something to drive until completion, they figured two days. One day for parts install and another day for alignment. I picked it up today and I didn't notice a stiffer ride than before. I can't wait to put a load in the bed and not hit the bump stops. I can't wait to put the Billy 5100's on and get the truck level, but that will have to wait until I get to Korea. I have to take the truck to Dallas next week for overseas shipment.
