just take those tsb numbers into the dealer, they will have a hard copy. The rear leaf replacement has not been issued on the 09 yet. However each dealer is handling it on a case by case issue right now. If you look at your rear springs and you only have 3 leafs then you could be elgible for the replacement. Just take the truck to the dealership and tell them it bottoms out if you carry any loads in the back. Thats what I did and they replaced mine without any questions.
Just talked to my service mgr about hauling sand bags this winter and truck bottoming out a little. Had him look up the TSB and told him I have the same part numbers.
He said he would talk to his Regional service mgr, cause he would have to get it approved.
called me today and said if its bottoming out with 2000 lbs too bad, but with only 1000lbs or less since the load rating is 1380, go ahead and order the parts. no questions asked. I will schedule my service when the parts come in.
Thanks for all your help everyone!
