    yet another tsb thread :eek:

    so im trying to get the tsb done on my tacoma, yes its eligible

    but they need it to bottom out before i can get it

    its bottomed out before with load, because we use it for work, i constantly have big pallets in the back but the drive from my work is kinda far to the dealership to be carrying a huge pallet that far.

    so my question is what is the minimum weight needed to make it bottom out over a bump, they will only do it if it does bottom out, i just dont want to carry a 3,000 lb in my bed for over an hour just so they can say "yep it needs it" then drive it allllll the way back to drop it off then back to the dealership to have it done, Thanks

    I would question them on why they need it to bottom out. When I got mine done I just said it was 'harsh' going over speedbumps and they hooked me up. I know it doesn't answer your question but screw putting all that weight in the back just to prove they should fix something they already know they should fix.

    CALL CORPORATE AND COMPLAIN. YOUR DEALERSHIP IS AN ASSHOLE.
    I JUST MENTIONED THE TSB TO MY SERVICE PERSON AND REPLY WAS NO PROBLEM. MAKE AN APPOINTMENT.
    SOME OF THESE DEALERS ARE SCREWBALLS.
    COMPLAIN TO CORPORATE AND CONTACT THE BBB.

    For the record, "TSB" is a general term considering there are many different TSBs dealing with different issues. I wish my truck only had one TSB issued then I'd feel pretty great about my purchase.

    I believe some dealers interpret the following from the harsh ride TSB
    as a requirement that they need to test that the condition exists.

    Tell the dealer to put a half dozen mechanics in the back and see how low it sits!

    I wouldn't just let the clowns off the hook.
    Ask for the general manager, explain what you have experienced, and that you are NOT willing to damage your truck further demonstrating it bottoming out. The TSB does not have a scientific way to assess load, so the dealer is bullshitting you. I have the TSB leaf spring upgrade and I can STILL bottom out the shocks. Anyway get the manager involved first, try to keep corporate out of it if you plan on using the dealership in the future.

    Well, your payload capacity is around 1300 pounds. That's everything in the cab that isn't bolted down from the factory, including driver and passenger, plus everything in the bed. So if you weigh 200 pounds and carry nothing in the cab, then you can put about 1100 pounds in the bed and you will be at full capacity.
