4 Leaf tsb thinner than 3 leaf

Hello,

A Toyota dealer master tech told me that the tsb 4 leaf metal is actually a little thinner metal than the original 3 leaf. Anyone notice this?

Hmmm, Maybe to make it less of a lift. So people don't bitch about the back end being too high after its done.

All I can say is that your service tech is way smarter than the one I deal with. Mine didn't even know what the rear TSB was.

(with 4 leaf tsb) He also said it handles better, will still bottom out just as much as the 3 leaf under load conditions, only will help with tounge weight of a improperly loaded trailor.

I've carried the same weight before and after the TSB, (about 1000LBS). It did not bottom out at all after the TSB but did bottom out a lot before the TSB. In my case, what he said was not correct.

He's full of shit about it bottoming out. I had mine done last summer and I can haul a hell of a lot more without bottoming out now with the new leaf pack. The ride is firmer than before.
