Rear spring TSB - My experience

So I called the stealship today to ask about my truck riding like doodoo with a load of top soil. They sounded genuinely cornfused. I asked if they had heard of this, "nope, bring it in & we'll take a look, better if you have the load in the truck, blah, blah, blah". I just had 440# of lawn clippings that I hauled off in it & felt it bump over a small bump. Guess I could stop bye bLowes for some temporary weight...
I'll stop in 2morrow to see if they know what TSB even stands for. They have won many awards for service, we'll see. I can hit the 1 in Reno, if Carson gives me any carp. I know I "touched" the bump stops. It rode like hell, I wouldn't go over 45 mph.

Wish me luck!

So I went in today after being told to "just show up after noon & we'll take a look". I wanna find that "salesman" that answered my call! Shoulda punched the gal behind the counter in the kneecap! She said that there is no way they could get it on a rack today. So I made an DISappointment for 2morrow @ 10:30. I plan to go do some dirt diggin on Sat., so I screwed a 2x6 in the bed side pockets to keep the 5 5 gal buckets from slidin around. Anyway, I thought that I'd throw the buckets in & fill w/ water to give them an idea of what I'm talking about. SO what's a gal of water weigh? 8 lbs? 8 x 5 x 5 =200#. give or take. I don't think that'll be enuff, but with a couple of grease monkeys to boot, think we'll push it over the edge?

Thumbs up The spring TSB wasn't all that bad, so far.

So, I went in yesterday & had the TSB in-hand, didn't even have to present it! The gal saw it & asked to see it, then went back to the pits. Meanwhile this other service manger dood looks over & checks out the TSB. I asked if they've done many of these, he says "1, mine".
Well, I gave up my keys & took a walk over to the nearest casino for the wait. Made $600, with @20 invested!! Wish I could spend a little on a lift...gotta pay the truck payment first!

They called after about 3 hours & said that they need to order the springs & call me next week.
I was ready for some bear too!
I also asked a couple of questions about a secret mod I'm plannin, good to go!
