Suspension TSB done today. New photos of Before and After! Yes, it is a stiffer ride.

They did not want to do it originally, than agreed but try to talk me out of it, saying that I would not be happy with the stiff ride...
Just rode a few miles back to work, so, hard to tell, but feels stiffer, but not terrible at all. I am glad I done it. Now I want to see how it handles when I attach my boat to the back of it this weekend. That will be the test.
Not sure though if it was a plus to loose my TRD chocks! Now I have some average looking Black shocks!
(I have a 2010 TRD Sport, Long bed)
Enjoy.
Cheers
David

gotta go with everyone else, why the shocks?


They didn't change out my shocks. 2010 OR though. Different TSB for the sport?

Not sure why the new shocks, but it stated on the Bill of service 2 new shocks...
No ideia why and I just noticed it after leaving the dealer... I will be hoping that those new ones are improved shocks!?!?
Too late now to ask to keep original TRD shocks...
I am planning to get those adjustable shocks later anyway. I am just waiting to get a few more miles on these, and more $ saved...

They're not supposed to touch the shocks on '09 and newer trucks. I would take it back.

Mine is an SR-5 and they took out the black shocks and put in the yellow Bilsteins.

lol they downgraded your shocks. They are supposed to UPGRADE to the Bilsteins, or if you already have them, they leave them alone. Time to go back. Make sure you have a printout, it lists part numbers and such.

Well, it is a new shock, and it really does matter, who can tell the difference!?
I am planning to change all for anyways in a few month...
Yes, the back end is higher, but I can't really tell though while riding...
