    Is the TSB going to be the be-all end-all or will it be necessary to put on an aal anyway? I'm talking about how well will the TSB hold up. I am concerned about the rear squatting while pulling my trailer.

    Lol! Ok long story short...I had the "harsh tide" TSB done (replace the shitty 3-pack with a slightly less shittier 4-pack)...maybe a year and 20k miles later the leafs were pretty much flat and wouldn't hold any weight. I went back to the dealer, who said they'd try to do it again, but on the spot called the warranty place who said No Way. I wasn't too heartbroken...already had an All-pro expo pack sitting at the house waiting for install.

    Do yourself a favor and buy a new leaf pack somewhere...an AAL is basically a crappy bandaid. If you're already having issues with your leaf pack...an AAL will probably make it seem like everything is better for a year or less. A new leaf pack will last a lot longer.
