Thanks for the reply's.. so my options are to go to toyota and get the 4 leaf TSB or spend the cash for an aftermarket set to fix it right? Wish I could get the lift... but need it to fit in my garage!

In all srsns, I vote Bilstein 5100 rears and an AAL if you're not doing anything crazy.

Not if it has too many miles.

TSBs aren't recalls, if you don't have symptoms of a problem then TSBs don't apply.

It's about like asking your doctor if there are any outstanding surgeries.

Wheelers pack if you don't want lift, progressive AAL if you don't care.
