    My drivers side leaf springs started squeeking like crazy about 10k miles ago. I know there was a TSB in the past for those things, but i would have thought that would have been fixed by 2009. I only have 25k miles.....what can i do?

    Check your dealer, if the service manager is nice maybe you can get the replacement leaf pack which is for bottoming out when carrying a heavy load or towing. The new leaf pack is a 4 leaf including the helper spring, the stock pack is a 3 leaf including the helper. The new leaf pack will give your truck about a 1" lift in th rear. I did the anti squeak pads in mine only because I have a add a leaf. I work for Toyota so I hope this helps.:D

    There is at least one new TSB for this problem- Check out TSB-0274-09. They insert new silencer discs between the leafs.

    I thought I saw another new fix in which they insert new white silencer pads (teflon?) in place of the old black ones. I can't find it now though. I will post it if I see it again.

    The new pads are really grey with teflon but I still think you should do the leaf spring upgrade if possible
