    I had issues with mine not the same as yours. I had to go to the guy running the entire place. Service adviser didn't know what to do then. It still sucked! They finally did get it right though.

    When mine came back to me and the box was out of whack with the cab I loosened the box off and shifted it myself, as for the rear leafs that they put in, I think they must of been off a 2 wheel drive cause they were flat, luckily the dealer gave me my old leafs back which had a add a leaf in them which I swapped into the new ones. They told me anything that they broke or misplaced was to be covered by Toyota. Make sure you dont give in to them, you shouldn't have been charged a dime for anything.
