No you got my my post right, I just used the word defective for lack of a better word at the time. I meant defective in the sense that springs were not capable of hauling the weight mentioned in Manuel. So I guess defective was a strong word.

I'm getting my 3 pack leafs on my 2012 TRD off road replaced with the tsb 4 pack today after a few trips to the dealer and a few phone calls. Can't wait to get the truck back

They won't do anything to help you go back so I need to make sure I can live with the ride quality. Some have said it feels like it rides about the same yet he's saying it's much more harsh so I need to make a decision in the next few days if I'm going to go through with it or not. I pull a trailer constantly and regularly haul stuff in the bed so I'm one of the ones who actually bought a truck to use for truck uses so I imagine this swap will be ideal and a slight decrease in ride quality will be worth it for what I gain in daily use.
I've had my truck back after completion of the TSB for about a week now and I must say that I'm glad I went ahead with it. The ride isn't noticeable more harsh as I was warned and in fact I have a difficult time telling a difference when empty. With my trailer I do notice it's a little bit more harsh but I'm not saying this is bad at all. I actually prefer it to the previous feel because I feel like I can tell better what my trailer is feeling and doing. I also am happy with the idea that my truck can now haul more in the bed and handle more weight and the best part is the price was right. If I had to do it over again I absolutely would and wouldn't give it so much thought. I would advise anyone and everyone to have this TSB done.

The TSB 4 leaf pack is not worth it if you are even considering paying part of the cost. The best option is airbags or an aftermarket leaf pack.

So I officially have the tsb 4 pack springs done on my 2012. The rear does sit higher now but no big deal. The ride quality is better and handles better, this should hold me off for a little while until I upgrade to better springs down the road

Just checked my two week old 2012 DC Short Bed 4WD V6 SR5. It has four leaf springs. Maybe they have switched over.

Starting with the 2012's , the US SR5 and Sport models get the 4 leaf pack , the Offroad still gets a 3 pack , presumably for better flex

Any suggestions on an good aftermarket 4-leaf pack similar to Toyota's? I don't want to have to change the shocks.

I owned an 05 Tacoma since new and just recently got the 12. This thread is extremely helpful - I didn't even know what a TSB stood for until now. Had I known I would have asked the dealer about it on the last rig. Mine has 3 and the over load already but is it possible to add a leaf without having to buy new brackets? With my snug top lid on it sags down a little and the front set to 1.75 gives it the bro lean that I hate.

Just scheduled the TSB to be done on my truck while I'm up North on vacation. Wish I had the 5100's already, but oh well. One thing at a time.

I have a 2012 DCLB TRDSport with 3 leafs but put a set of airbags on. Do you guys think I should pull the bags off before taking the truck in to discuss getting the TSB done? The bags definitely helped a lot but I think having the proper springs would also help a good bit as I tow and haul motorcycles often

I have a 2012 4X4 Access Cab SR5 4 cyl built in Texas. It has the 3 pack rear springs. I haven't put a load in it yet to see how bad the ride is, but I do notice a slight bounce or stutter in the suspension when I hit a bump going down the freeway. Could this be from the weak springs?

I had to put the bags in the rear so that the truck would stop looking like it was in the final stages of lift off. And that was only with about 450 lbs (one bike + some gear) in the bed and two sport bikes on a trailer
