    I hate to ask this but I've searched here and other sites and can't find a copy of the rear leaf tbs. I have a 2011 2.7 Access cab 4x4 and have read that the tbs covers it. I need it done if I can get it but would like to read it and make sure before I go to the dealer. Does anyone have a link to the tbs. I've found one up to '08 but nothing later.

    The wording will be the same, just with an added year in there.

    Tip: Per the TSB, "An alignment inspection and adjustment is required after the installation of the new rear leaf springs." That includes the 2009-2011 models that don't get new shocks.

    I didn't have to have the TSB in hand to get them to change out the springs, but I did have to point out to them (on the copy I had saved to my iPhone) that it included an alignment. They were also installing my Eibachs and 5100s, so they were planning on charging me for the alignment. I've seen several reports here on the board where springs were changed but alignments weren't done.

    Good point TXBulldawg. I'm not planning on any shocks at this time but the alignment is still supposed to be done. I'll make sure it is (as much as I can).
