    Here you go:

    Part Number: M/T979412
    • 17x9, 6 on 5.5 Bolt Pattern
    • Back Spacing = 4.53 in.
    • Offset = -12mm.
    • Max Load = 2500 lbs.
    • Hub Centric = Yes
    • Finish = Black
    But now looking at them, since they are hub centric, will they fit on a Tacoma? I really hate this, I like the wheels and don't feel like doing more research on them.

    I just orderd my lift today and should have it this next Friday? My question is, will it matter if the TSB has been done if I put the 3" lift on?

    from my limited knowledge, i dont think u'd need a lift on that b/c ur not going w/ something like a 285/70/17, then i'd say definately...but i might would try having them put em on and see where they sit, if ur not in the notion of getting a lift right now

    I want to say it's the add a leaf? I don't remember, it's the OME all the way around with heavy up front to support the ARB bumber when I get it? It's $974.00 or so?

    well they say that if u get the tsb done in the rear w/ the 4pack springs to do the blocks in the rear if u need more. The AAL rear is like 1.5" and the tsb rear is like 1-1.25" i do believe. i'd put the front in and go from there. if u dont like the look w/ just the added lift in the front, then throw in a 1-2" block.

    My truck went in this morning for the Leaf Spring TSB. I was able to get the appointment without any hassles because I did not go thru the dealership directly. My truck is 07 TRS Acess 4x4 and only has 785 miles on the ODO. So it is brand new.

    Here is the trick. What you do is to call the TOYOTA CUSTOMER LINE (1-800-331-something) and say that you experienced the bed bottoming out when somewhat substantial weight was carried and ask why this is happening. Also ask if it can be "corrected" since the truck is covered under the warranty.

    In my case, the Toyota Rep put me on hold and looked up their data base. She came back on line and asked me where I want to take my truck to get this fixed. She even called and sent an e-mail to the dealership of my choice of necessary repair work. I got a call from the Dealership next day asking me when I want to bring the truck in for the TSB work.

    This way, you avoid having to plea your case with the DEALERSHIP. One call to Toyota Customer Number, and you are taken care of... :D

    TSB x 2 because first TSB leaf springs broke
    I just got back from ROYAL MOORE TOYOTA in Hillsboro, Oregon, outstanding dealership.

    I brought my truck in, 40,500 miles & because I had taken it in while still under full warranty for "ride issues" in the suspension they're ordering all the stuff & will get the TSB done asap. No test drive, nothing, they're awesome & I didn't even have to ask, they're just taking care of it.

    I'll buy another truck from them someday, my parents have each bought a Camry from them, oustanding dealer so far.

    I have the '05 2.7L 5 speed (non-TRD) so I'll let you know what they did to it, maybe post a picture or two. I have NO idea what brand shocks they put on, I'll have to look at their paperwork when they're done. :D

    they should be putting on the bilsteins from the trd package as well as the 4 leaf pack in the rear. u should have the full suspension of a trd, minus the beefier coils and sway bar

    08 4x4, SR5, DC long bed
    08 - switched to 4x4 long bed, no mods yet 07 - TRD front bumper, TSB suspension, 3" front level by ReadyLift, bed mat, Truxedo soft tonneau cover. Westin tube steps, extra D-rings
    Went to dealer today for tire rotation and mentioned it bottomed out when loaded with the 4 wheeler. They had no problem and order the parts for the TSB. Will be here in a couple of days.

    Question: Will the new leafs raise the rear height? Did anyone raise the front to compensate to keep the truck level? I have an ARB front (about 500 lbs I guess) so I thought I might need a small lift just to level out the truck - not interested in huge lift or oversized wheels.

    Great info on the TSB, never would have know if I had not come across TW.

    Thanks for the help.

    im getting mine done tomorow(cant friggin wait either:D)....but i have heard that it will raise the rear from and inch and a quarter to and inch and a half or so. and ive also heard people level out the front with bilstein 5100's or maybe a spacer up front. you may want a spacer and the 5100's since you have that heavy duty bumper....just a thought though.

    This is exactly what my service person told me and then added that my 08 had the same rear springs part #'s that were covered on the 05 to 08-28-07 trucks. But is giving me grieve because '08 it is not included in the TSB. Toyota has known about this for three years and to keep sending out trucks with three leafs is chicken shit to say the least! Especially when you order the trailer towing package and they ought to know you will be putting more weight on the rear of the truck.:mad:

    try to wait it out just a couple more weeks....i think toyota is gonna revise the tsb again to include the 08's. either wait a little longer, or call toyota's 800 number. send a pm to khfactor for the correct 800 number, and they should take care of ya!!

    Called the 1 800 first and they referred me to the dealer. I thought it was a go and then the dealer called back and said the '08 didn't get it. Funny though the parts dept. called today and said my parts were in (leaf springs, bolts, shocks). Didn't get a return call from the service dept. though? Maybe it will work out, but still think Toyota is out of line sending out '08's with the same bad parts!!!

    I just got a '08 moving from a '99 and finding out all this about the springs in the rear from these posts. I imagine Toyota hopes not many read these things.

    the funnest thing was ,
    I thought when looking to buy it
    "those springs look a bit wimpy", then it was,
    "it is just the way it is" - after reading the spec's on the truck and noticed that the carrying capacity on the long bed was lower
    after a trip with four people in it I thought something just was not right
    Tires maybe??, not used to the new truck ?
    they WILL hear from me

    I got mine done last week and it still bottoms out. What are my options now. They had a guy a dspm??? come check it out and it still bottoms out with a 350lb (quad) load. They told me to bring it with my quad in the bed and we went for a ride and it was not fixed. Then they wanted to put my quad in a new 08 but that would not help fix my truck. The dealer is very easy to work, with they are also doing the TBS on the tailgate. I have been searching for answers and cant find any.......
