Newbie saying Hey and thanks!!

Long time reader of TW. I have a 05 prerunner silver streak dblcb trd off rd. I've learned a lot here and have used the stickies to do the anytime foglight MOD and have also recently changed my plugs and did my own rear diff service. All painless and easy thanks to the thorough guides posted here.

I recently checked my VIN and found the spiral cable recall had not been done to my 05. I purchased this truck last year with 21k original on the clock. Love the truck. Anyway while at the dealer for the recall I asked about the leaf spring tsb. The writer said he had never heard of it but would check. Just before they finished up the writer came out and said he had found the tsb. I said great. Luckily I was sitting down.....$2480. to complete the tsb. That would replace all shocks, the rear leafs and a couple of other components. Needless to say I passed on it.

Well thanks again for all the info and help and glad to be a member.

This was an easy mod that requires maybe 45minutes. It is well written and includes a detailed material list. Good luck!!

I'm not spending much more than that for a real suspension upgrade. I'm really surprised Toyota hasn't smartened up and put together some lift packages worth that kind of money. I think they'd sell well.

I agree. I guess Toyota figures they currently have the the "mid-sized" pick up market basically to themselves so there is no need to change anything they are doing. I like the Tacoma. This is my third and it is vastly different from my first two, an 1984 4x4 SR5 with the small shelf behind the front seats and a 1988 4x4 SR5 same set up. Both were 4 banger/5spd and tough little trucks. I like what direction Toyo took with the 2nd generations. I look forward to what the 3rd generation will bring to the table......
