Haven't seen this addressed in any of the other threads, so I'll ask here.
I'll note here that I didn't get any questions from the dealer when I asked to get the TSB implemented. I mentioned that I had a problem and had called Toyota and that the Toyota rep suggested I get the TSB. They ordered the parts, got them in two days and called me for an appt to get the TSB done. Nothing to it. Nice. San Marcos Toyota in San Marcos, TX.

I had the spring TSB done today. Before taking the truck in, I measured the ride height directly over the wheels. I measured from the ground to the lower edge of the fenders. When I got the truck back today, I measured again.
all with no load
front - 34 5/8 >> 35 1/8
rear - 37 >> 38
So, a 1/2 inch increase in the front and a 1 inch increase in the rear.
So, that leads to my question (sort of). I understand, with the new leafs in the back that the height could change. An inch seems a bit much. Why would they raise the ride height with the new springs? It seem it would be simple enough to arch the new springs to give the same no load ride height, but they didn't.
Then, I know they changed the shocks in front. As far as I know they did not change the springs. Since shocks have nothing to do with ride height, why did the front go up at all? Also, does anyone know how they raised the front?
Thanks for any and all replies!
