    Hey guys,
    I downloaded the 2009 suspension TSB from a thread on TW. I noticed it said AC and DC. Has anyone seen/heard of them doing it for a regular cab? Is it worth going through the hassle with them or should I just do a AAL?

    Just do the AAL. Or do the 3 Leaf AAL.

    Thanks Dan, I actually just got off your site. I'm going to order an AAL set from you but still unsure what to do about the front. I just got a set of 265/75/16's today and they are rubbing slightly in a few places up front. What is a good cheap way to remedy that? I was thinking bilstein 5100's upfront set at 1.75". That seems to be a common thing on here. Any suggestions? I'm new to all this so any help would be much appreciated. If I did the shocks is that all I would have to do?

    For the money the 5100s are a great way to go. If you did the front at 1.75" it should give you the tire clearance you need and the truck should sit close to level, or with a bit of rack, when combined with the aal. That is basically all you need.

    OP, you are correct, the TSB does not apply to regular cabs. I've never heard of anyone getting it done on a regular cab either.

    The spring TSB DOES cover the regular cab even though the title of the applicability section doesn't say regular cab. The TSB lists 20 model codes that it applies to. Read the TSB and compare the model codes to your VIN number to see if it applies. It applied to my 2011 regular cab, 4wd, 4cyl auto. Had the TSB done the other day under warranty.
