    I had my complete factory TRD Off-Road suspension removed at the dealership and replaced with a 2.5” lift Old Man Emu suspension. These leaf packs are off my 2011 double cab, they are the 3 leaf variety, and they have ZERO (148) miles on them.
    There has been a lot posted about the Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that applies to the leaf springs in 2005-2010 and now 2011 model years.

    Here is a link to the TSB concerning the leaf springs:
    http://www.scribd.com/doc/50799638/T-SB-0359-10

    From what I’ve read, the fix for the 2005-2010 TSB was the installation of a 4 leaf pack that gave somewhat of a rough ride. Also, replacement is only covered within the warranty period and only given the existence of certain conditions.

    I’m not entirely sure what all of this means since I’m kinda new to all this. In any case, if your vehicle is no longer covered under the 3yr/36k mile warranty, you have a TRD Sport or non TRD model, or you have some sort of ride issues, I have a pair of leaf springs I’m willing to sell.

    The OEM Part Numbers are:
    Left 48220-04191 Right 48210-0455

    New springs are kinda pricey and they would cost a fortune to ship since they are so heavy. So, if you’re anywhere near Utah, email me if you’re interested and we can work out a fair price for the pair.

    On the left hand spring, is there also a -K after the numbers? My 2010 leaf springs do not bottom out (my 2005 did). I am just wondering if I was just lucky and if the -K meant something special?

    I think $450 is a little much for a pair a stock springs.

    Your spring number is different too... ends in a 191 (mine ends in a 190).

    Anybody with a 2010 Taco, please have a look at the spring if you remove your rear tire and note the part number... if it has a -K at the end (and if you have the harsh ride issue ie. bottoms out with a load). Again, my '10 3 leaf (-K) does not bottom out (my '05 did)... Just curious as to why some 2010s are still needing a TSB if a better spring was available?

    chopshop and 2k6 taco - i'm sure the part numbers are different for the "pre-runner" and "sport" editions that you guys have. my springs are from and off-road edition so i'm sure there must be a difference. in any case, OEM factory springs are more that $450 each for any edition no mater where i look. i didn't think $450 for a pair of brand new springs was too out of line.

    It's like going to the dealer to buy a factory wheel. Who would do it, when you can get a superior product in the aftermarket for less money. OME springs are far superior to factory springs and cost a lot less. I just purchased the same springs, from the same year and model truck, including the rear billies for $100. Good luck with your sale.

    yeah, your probably right. besides, unless someone was local, it would be cost prohibitive to ship them anywhere.

    i was thinking about building a utility trailer and i could always use them for the suspension on that.

    i also make knives as a hobby and i could probably take the relay short leaf out and use it as knife steel. i always hear good things about knives made from leaf spring steel and i've always wanted to try it.
