    i searched this topic but didn't find much. i have a 2010 trd OR sport with a 3 leaf pack in the rear. I know of and have read the rear leaf spring tsb for previous years. my truck has a 3 leaf pack and i have heard that if you have 3 you can qualify for the tsb to get done. is that right?

    i wouldnt quite say my truck has a harsh ride but i do always have about a 150 lbs of tools in my truck and the roads i drive on are warped and full of pot holes. ( i live in new england). so those of you have gotten it done, did you go from a 3 leaf and they installed a 4 leaf pack? or did they replace the 3 leaf with another 3 leaf pack with different compression ratings?

    The three leafs is the standard leaf pack. The TSB will be a four leaf pack. I had mine done last year. If the truck hits the bump stops they should do it for you depends on the dealer I guess. There are lots of threads just do a search for leaf spring tsb and you'll find lots of threads.

    TSB will give you 4 leafs and about an extra 1" of height.

    is this something i need to worry about in a '11 model? the 3 leaf springs almost curl up (reverse arch) and all i have is a cap & moved the spare up into the bed, so it's not a weight issue.

    thanks

    Don't the dealers get paid by Toyota for this? Like warranty work? Wonder why some dealers do not want to do the work.
