    Hey there well i'm getting my rear TSB done today at Virginia Beach Checkered Flag Toyota and I was wondering if there is anything that I should know before I get it done. I know that I should keep the old parts if I can. Anything else guys. Thanks.

    After the springs are installed your headlights will point lower. You should think about some 5100 billies to level off the front.

    I got mine set at the 1.75, I've heard others go to the 2+ but some say that you might have an alignment problem and that the UCA's might have to be changed out. You might look at some of the other posts on TW.

    That looks good like that. Did you have to do anything after you put the shocks on?

    Just the re-alignment on the front end because of the struts removal. Also, some say that the new springs will give you a stiffer ride but I didn't notice it. But most members seem to agree that the spring replacement is worth it. By the way when you get your tsb done check the spring pack, because some TW members reported that their dealers made a mistake and re-installed the old 3 leaf pack back on.

    like other said, inspect the part number.
    I had a problem with the shop not doing my alignment, as the TSB states. My original work order referenced the correct TSB number, but the actual worksheet had a different TSB, i believe for the squeaky spring, and didn't include the alignment. so I had to go back and get my free alignment.... which I needed b/c i had added 5100s a day prior to the TSB swap.

    I'm getting mine done at the end of the month, and didn't really know this was the norm. Getting the old springs that is. So people that have had this done typically get their old springs back. :confused:

    Not all the time. Sometimes the dealer will say that they have to return it to the factory for some reason. But sometimes you'll be able to hang on to them.

    That's why I'm pissed haha, I want a free lift. That and I hear the TSB only nets like 0.5" - 1.0" after settling and thats all I want....well at least for right now.
