Anyone do the TSB-leaf spring at Roseville Toyota - CALI

Hello - I am having my 08 Tacoma looked at for the rear leaf spring TSB. I gave them the TSB number as well as told them my part number matches the number on the TSB for the old part. Also told them I was having a harsh ride and it bottomed out a couple times with a heavy load. They said to bring it in, they know what to look for to determine if it needs to be done. Any extra advice is much appreciated just in case I need more ammo to convince them in case they give me a hard time.

Thanks

So what if there are no marks. It only has 4,700 miles on it and have only felt it bottom out a couple times. I don't think a couple times would leaves marks but I don't don't know. Seems like it will be a lame argument on there part.

[quote=phantom;312448]i don't write the rules but the tsb is to help bottoming out
if no marks then you have not used the bump stops ;-D

I hear ya - Black rubber on black paint. That would be hard to see marks, seems like it would need to bottom out alot before it started leaving marks.
