2011 Prerunner SR5 (2.7) Double Cab 4th Leaf TSB - Has anybody had it done?

Was wondering if any owners with the new 2011 Prerunner (2.7) Double cab went for the 4th leaf TSB and how satisfied they are with the results.

My truck will be at the dealer tomorrow for the 5k mile service and to have the suspension inspected to see if the TSB will fly, they said it should... but needed to look at it anyway.

I already purchased the ToyTec 1/4" Taco lean spacer and ordered a set of front 5100's (yesterday). Now I just need to coordinate the installation of both to ensure that I get the included alignment at the time of the TSB.

I have some questions if anybody is knows... I guess I was hoping to learn from somebody elses experience in this situation.

I watch my mileage pretty close, hoping someone else has a before and after scenario with the TSB and 5100's on this model 4 cylinder truck.
  1. What is the best 5100 setting for the front shocks to go along with the TSB ".85 or 1.75"?
  2. Will raising the front end (w/the 5100's) hurt my mpg?, so far this truck is getting incredible mileage, last three tanks were 26+mpg! I've been logging all my miles since day one and am very curious if anybody with same (2.7 non trd dc prerunner) package has did the TSB with 5100's in front.
  3. Do I need the ToyTec spacer if I have the 5100's on the front?
I guess #2 is the biggest thing, I really enjoy the fantastic mileage this truck is getting, if the TSB (and the 5100's up front) will cause a 2 mpg decrease in mpg I would scrap the TSB idea and pull my ATV on a trailer instead of putting it in the bed of the truck... (dont really like how it sits on the tailgate anyway...).

Hey Lite,

I have the same truck (except silver) coming next week and your right to worry about it sitting on the tailgate. I have a full size silverado and my atv has done some slight damage to the tailgate over time. I would be worried about it sitting on the tacoma gate even with the suspension upgrades. I'm just gonna suck it up and use a small trailer. Mine has a winch on the front and i don't want that baby anywhere near my back glass LOL

^ No CV joints on his PreRunner.

And that ATV probably weighs ~500 lbs??? Definitely not worth getting an AAL unless you plan on hauling a lot more as god said.

I would just keep hauling it as is.

Not a bad guess.

Yeah , 500 was a good call, I believe the 2wd honda rancher weighs exactly 500! I'd feel better about that load if there were plywood cantilevering from the bed over the gate to distribute some of the load on the gate.

I'd only be worried about it resting on the tailgate if you had an 05-08 truck. Since 09 Toyota has been using reinforced tailgates that are MUCH stronger.
