    Super White, Two tone black and grey leather, AVS hood protector, AVS in channel window visors. Leer 180 cap. New TRD exhaust, TRD 17" wheels.
    Putting on my new TRD exhaust today and while I was under the truck I noticed the leaf springs were horizontal or flat, no curve. I do have a leer 180 canopy on my truck, but I don't think it ways that much. Anyone else with a 2012 have the same problem? Has mother Toyota come out with a free fix yet? Thanks

    Yep this has been an issue since 05, there is a tsb for the rear leaf springs. Do you have 2 leafs and 1 overload leaf? Try searching for tsb threads there is a ton of them on here

    EDIT: looks like the tsb only applies to 05-11 right now after browsing through a few threads, you might find a differet answer tho, best bet would be go complain to the dealer if you want it lol
