If your talking about the rear spring tsb then they may not let you, check your rear leafs see if it is a 3 pack or 4 pack, if its 4 you definitely do not need it.

Were they that way when you got the 07?

Im getting mine inspected next weekend and think they might screw me. Apparently the swap cost about $1100 in parts, from what the tech advisor quoted..and they are tight wads

I read about this TSB about a week after I picked up my '09 (about a month ago). I checked the part numbers on my leafs, sure enough, they were the ones mentioned in the TSB. Obviously they were the 3 leaf pack too. I called the stealership, they gave a bit of resistance, but after a civil 15 minute discussion they agreed to "open a case with toyota". That was on a saturday. By mid-morning monday, I got a call back saying that the springs were on order.

Wasn't really a big deal to get it done, and I'm glad I did.

I'm not sure that my '09 needs it. Yes, I have the 3 leaf spring pack, but my truck doesn't ride harsh or bottom out with 400lbs in the bed. My friend has an '07 SR5 that rides like shit... bottoms out over a small bump. It's almost unbearable. He just hasn't had time to do the TSB yet.
