?TSB Springs?

Can someone tell me what exactly the TSB pack consist of and how can I tell if I have this? Does this have to do with how many springs are in the pack itself? I'm getting ready to get the OME 3" for the front and trying to decide if an AAL will work for me or if I need to go with the Dakar? Thanks!

Toyota replaces the stock 3 leaf junk springs with 4 leaf junk springs. Go count how many leafs you have. There would be 3 plus the overload if you have the TSB.

Looks like I don't have the TSB upgrade. I have 2 plus the overload so I suppose my choices are to go with the 2" AAL that comes with the OME kit or break down and get the Dakar.

Yeah it's nothing but $,they're making more of it everyday right?
I think I may roll with the 2" that comes with the kit first and maybe Santa can stuff the Dakars in my stocking in about 6 months.

Priced around 200.........compared to dakars the icon 3 leaf aal should be an option......I can tell ya the icon progressive aal rides like butter compared to the single 1.5" toytec/deaver I had.
I was thinking that the Icon 3 Leaf AAL was the one that required you to do away with the factory overload all together???

Theres a few opinions from others in this thread....Its relatively new, so others may chime in later with more opinions. Hope it helps!

Keep in mind that pugga has quite a bit in the back of his truck on a daily basis, (shell, and a platform IIRC).

I have the Icon 3 leaf and left the overload in for an extra .5" of lift. It rides awesome!
