Rear suspension tsb

I have a 2008 Tacoma and i was wondering what the rear suspension tsb exactly does.
I tried looking it up but haven't had any luck.
Im going to the dealership 2morrow so i might as well bring this tsb up while im there.
Lastly, is there any other tsb you guys recommend i do.
Thanks for all the help!!!

Nope, nothing like the 5100's.

That sucks.
Anyway at least ill have the 1inch lift in the rear. I only have a spacer in the front and at times it seems like the front is higher so thats a good thing. Hopefully it levels out and looks better.

i just got my tsb done TODAY, it made the ride much more solid, and made it feel like a truck should feel... took about 3.5 hours at the dealership...

Nice dude.
Let me know if the 1 inch lift in the rear settles down after a while.
And also is your truck stock or lifted?
If so what are your lift specs?
Post some pics of the height and stuff.
Thanks dude

It starts off with about 1.5" lift and then settles down to 1" if you load the rear with some weight. But, I dont recommend doing it just to do it. It should only be done if you need more bed load capacity.
Also, you may want to lift the front to level out the truck.

i did it cause on my 06, it hadnt been done before i acquired the truck at 42000 miles... so doing now was a good thing, the truck feels more solid around turns and on the road

Just tell them you are having a harsh ride with a heavy load in the bed
There's the key. Don't go in to the dealer and say, "I got this TSB and I want it done." TSBs are issued by the manufacturer to help the dealer service techs correct known issues in a timely manner. TSBs aren't published to help the consumer although that's what a majority of us use them for. It's how you approach the issue that will determine if the work is performed.
