After spending about 1.5hrs on the phone with 2 different dealers, I was told the same thing, that the rear leaf TSB would have to be paid completely out of my pocket. My truck is an 07 with around 70k miles on it, but is Certified. There is still 2 months left on the bumper to bumper certified warranty, and 4yrs left on the pwr train warranty. First off, neither dealer had ever heard of a tsb for a harsh ride with weight in the bed, so I had to explain to them what it said, and give them the TSB number before they even agreed with me that such a thing even existed. Next, each dealer said that it is only covered under the orig. warranty, and would cost me $90 for an inspection to put a claim in for the certified warranty, and that they probably wouldn't cover it.
I already ordered my 5100's anticipating a rear tsb, but now it doesn't look like I'm gonna get it.
My options are:
1) Send the Billie's back and keep the truck stock.
2) Suggest to me the correct AAL to put in so I can use my billies (gonna set em' at 1.75 or 2.5).
