    first off..i dont know too much about autos, im an environmental engineer lol. i have a 2010 ac sb 4.0 sr5v6 auto trd SPORT with 4k miles and tow package. i read about this whole suspension tsb on tacomaworld, and i realized a leaf spring was completely missing. also noticed a yellow sticker inside door which says load capacity reduced by 2 kg or 4 lbs. dont know what all these numbers on the leaves mean but they read (driver side) 48220-04190-klh and 100609..(passenger) 48210-04550-krh and 110609. can someone please clarify if my suspension is ABLE to be restored through the tsb? i dont usually haul crazy amounts of weight, and never bottomed it out (yet), but i like the idea of a heavier duty vehicle for towing/hauling. do i stand a chance if i make an appointment with the service dept. at my stealership?:confused: thnx for the input!

    Yellow sticker has nothing to do with the rear springs. It means you have some sort of accessory/option and they've subtracted it's weight from your total capacity. And 4 lbs is nothing anyway.

    You still qualify for the TSB if you can find a dealership that is easy to work with. Some dealerships want you to prove that you haul heavy loads and actually bottom out. Other dealerships will take your word and do the spring swap without asking questions.

    You should be able to find out if they'll do it simply by calling and talking to a service manager.

    I just got my truck and haven't used it for any super heavy loads yet, but I ride dirt bikes and know that I'll have two of them plus gear plus a passanger soon so I made sure to have the TSB done. My dealership asked a couple questions, but otherwise did the service without too much trouble.

    The TSB addresses the rear suspension on both the access cab and double cab.
