    Another Positive Rear Spring Experience
    Just got my 2010 2WD A/C, 4-banger back from the dealer. Got the 5K mile maintenance done and........the Harsh Ride TSB done.....

    They went beyond the 2nd rev to the TSB, which called for replacing only the rear springs and not frame/body bumpers or any shocks....here's what I got:

    1. Replaced 3-leaf springs with 4-leaf springs (48210-04570 and 04210)
    2. U-Bolt (90117-A0005) (X4)
    3. Spring Bumbers (48341-04080) (X2)
    4. Shock Set (48510-09U50) (X2)
    5. Shock Set (48530-09Q40) (X2)
    6. Complete 4 wheel alignment.

    I had also mentioned the reduced air flow output when the heat selection was all the way up (high)....they didn't change the damper out as prescribed in the TSB, because I didn't mention the TSB....just complained about air-flow. Well they replaced the blower motor and blower sub-assembly. I will take the TSB for the Heat/HVAC with me for the 10K mile visit and see what they do.

    Dealership is in Old Saybrook, CT....Lorensen Toyota. And......the loaner I got was a 2009 Taco A/C, 4.0 Automatic.

    Guess what was on the floor? You got it! Tacoma all-weather floor mats...and they never moved the two days I drove it. I asked about getting some, but....told they couldn't sell them...........

    They also washed and vacuumed my truck.....and...........

    Another thing............I DID NOT buy my truck from them!

    I thought the harsh ride TSB was for 4WD only? That is what dealer told me. I thought I read the TSB was changed to make it apply ONLY to 6 cylinder?

    More info?

    So the 2010's are part of the leaf spring TSB?? I thought this was a 2009 TSB? Wouldn't Toyota put the new part numbers on 2010's??
