Is this TSB OK??

Had the dealer do the TSB the other day, and while installing the new rear shocks, noticed the bottom spring was off abit (see pic). It lines up in the front and the right side is OK, so is this going to be fine, or do I need to take it back?

EDIT: Got to figure out how to post a pic first.

Can't figure out how to upload pics yet..but anywhat, the very bottom spring of the 4 is offset to the left about half and inch on the rear part, but the front is lined up ok. Is this reason for concern and and a return trip to the dealer?

sounds like the overload leaf is turned a bit. it should have a straight sided (open ended) retaining clip that keeps it from turning any more.

Although, if it's sticking out about 1/2" to the left in the rear, then the front of the same leaf "should be" sticking out about 1/2" to the right in the front.

If it's just a half inch though, i wouldn't worry about it....as i mentioned, the retaining clip is there to keep it from turning any more.

The front has a retaining clip about 10" fron the center pin, but nothing on the rear part of it. Seems wierd that the front would be lined up good, but the back sits to the left by a .5".

Thx

Yea, like it clean..don't off road and hasn't rained on it yet...so nice and clean.

Thx for the help, wasn't sure if the dealer did things right, since the other side is lined up straight.

Do have one more question...

About to do the fronts next week...new shocks/coils and UCA's.
Is it alright to remove both shocks and uca's at the same time?
Have to take shocks to local place to build them up and like to make just one trip to do this?

Thx

There's no problem having both shocks and UCAs off of both sides. Just be extra careful to make sure the truck is perfectly balanced and wont fall off of any jack stands.
