Re: 2010 tsb

So all this talk about the rear springs has made me paranoid about the real springs on my 2010 DC Sport. I have three leaves with the lowest being about twice as thick as the upper two. I also have the sticker on the door but it states that the modifications have changed the capacity from "0" to "0"? So I am guessing that the thickened third leaf was the fix? Or was it always that way? Any TSB survivors out there?

Sounds like you have the regular crappy 3 leaf pack that they for some reason conitnue to use...check the part numbers against the TSB!

Those springs are fine as long as you use your truck like an SUV or sedan. There is nothing to be paranoid about. It just happens that when you load in more than 500 lbs in the back with the 3-pack, things get squishy.

Meanwhile, the 4-leaf pack will make it ride like a truck when empty, and comfortable with at least 200 lbs in back.
