Does Leaf TSB increase the weight you can haul?

    Do not know if this has been asked but I have the "yellow" sticker that reduced the haul weight, but just had the Leaf TSB preformed with all new shocks. With this done do you know if this brings me back up to the manuel book weight? I need to pick up wood pellets and want to make as few trips as possible. FYI I have the basic Taco double cab short bed 09.

    I would not say it increases the amount you can haul, but it increases the performance of your truck's suspension when you haul that extra weight

    That's a good question...I really don't know. It definitely makes your truck more stable when carrying a load but does it increase the GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating)?

    I had 2 dirt bikes and our riding gear in the back of my 09 double cab with TSB springs and bottomed out a few times.

    In my 2004 1st gen, with stock suspension, I NEVER bottomed out with the same gear loaded. Go figure...

    I believe it just "restores" your pay load capacity to what is stated in the manual, in the pre 09 models.
