    Has ANYONE had any luck getting the rear spring TSB done with over 36,000 miles? I bought my '05 DC LB TRD Sport a month ago with just under 37k on it. Ever since I've been addicted to this site. I've checked my rear leaf springs, there are only 3!!! I just missed the warranty by a thousand miles. I don't do a lot of hauling but I plan on buying a boat in the next year or so. I'll also be hauling gear for camping (one of the reasons I bought the truck). I don't want to have all of the bottoming out issues. What should I do??? I'll try the dealership to see what they say, I just figured I'd ask around first.
    If they say no, what are my options? I don't have a ton of money so hopefully nothing too expensive. I was planning on getting the rear TSB done then adding the 5100's to the front(i don't really go off-roading, its a 4x2 anyway) for a better stance.
    Or maybe something like chris4x4's setup (the truck and the boat:D). SWEET setup by the way chris.
    Help out a newb who fell a thousand miles short.

    Thanks,
    Khris

    Asking your dealer of choice is the best way to answer this question. You'll get TONS of YES and NO answers from people who have had different experiences.

    You can try to buy the TSB springs from them and pay to have them installed. You could buy an Add a Leaf. You could buy new spring packs in the back (Dakar, Deaver, etc)

    Good luck figuring it all out!!
