Tsb, aal ?

I have to get something clarified. The TSB is only for trucks up to 07? Or is it for trucks that only have a 3 leaf pack? I am going to buy 5100's for up front and set them at around 2.5". I planned on buying a toytec AAl to lift the rear. Should I stick to my plan? Or will/should my truck qualify for the TSB? Seems how it only has a 3 pack. I know the TSB will only lift the rear around 1". I was kinda hoping for 2" with a AAL..
Thanks.

TSB is for up to 07 Tacos but some have had good luck with their 08s and some dealers. The TSB is free vs. the AAL which costs $$... might be worth it to try to get the TSB done.

The TSB now DOES include 08 trucks. This is a fairly recent change...there is a large thread about it.

Your truck most likely will qualify for the TSB...however the TSB is NOT a lift-It will give you between 1/2 and 1 inch in the back.

If you get the TSB- You'll have to do some extra work with an AAL to get the full 2 inches.

If I were you...I'd skip the TSB and get the AAL....It's what...70 dollars or so.

I agree. Get the AAL instead. I got the TSB done and bought a ToyTec AAL. However, to get the AAL to work with the TSB springs, you gotta kinda "make" it work. Chris4x4 says that they will work with the TSB springs, but you either have to install them backwards or cut about a 1/2" off the AAL. For that reason, I haven't tackled it yet.

As a side note, I have an '09 and the dealership didn't even blink about doing the TSB for me, although I think this is a dealership by dealership thing. The '09 isn't officially included in the TSB - but I checked my springs and the part numbers matched. It raised my back almost a full inch, but it will settle.

I have to go the opposite way on this. I say GET the TSB. My truck rides much better with the TSB AND AAL than it did with the factory 3 spring and AAL.

Sorry dude, I thought I read somewhere that you recommended that if you were thinking about an AAL you should skip the TSB.

That's what I get for speaking for someone else! I've learned my lesson now, sir......

Chris,

I currently have an AAL and shims. Do you think I can still get the TSB done or will the dealer deny me because I already modified the leafs?

Yes. The TSB springs are MUCH better than the stock ones.

You should be able to. I had my AAL in when I took it in for the TSB. Only problem was that they didnt put the AAL back in because the center pin wasnt long enough. No biggie. Also, they didnt put the new "U" bolts in, so I chewed their asses about that. I asked for the new "U" bolts and just installed everything myself. Center pins are available at any off road shop, and they sell them in only one length, you just have to cut it to size once its installed. Easy task with a hacksaw.

I have a 1" AAL. That and the TSB springs gave 2". You can see if a spring shop can make you an AAL (which is what I did), or have them take out some arch on a 2" AAL, or search for a 1" AAL.

The rear 5100's are desighned for a 0" to 2" rear lift. That being said, I REALLY like the ride of the 5100's and I think you should just get the shock extenders from Toytec.

They should work just fine with the 5100 shocks. If they dont, you can always return them. I didnt extend my brake lines. I just bent the bracket to allow full droop.
