    I got my TSB completed a couple weeks ago, and I must say I love it. The truck is stiffer, corners and handles better, and does not bottom out. Plus it sits higher, but this is only noticeable to the driver. Leaf springs wear out anyway with time, so I highly recommend it even if you don't tow or haul much. It took about a day for he parts to come in and then a couple hours for installation. The dealer required an "inspection" prior to agreeing to performing the TSB, but that took all but 5 mintues - I guess all they needed to do was check the manufacture date on the door seal. I was surprised that the dealer knew about it - didn't even have to take my copy of the TSB out, I am very happy with the process, needless to say. :cool:

    I have the '08 Tacoma TRD Sport Access Cab. It appears virtually the same as the '07. In fact, I have yet to find anything at all different in them.

    Does anyone know if this problem was corrected on the '08 models? I purchased mine in October '07 so it was an early '08 model.

    The TSB says the repair is covered for trucks still in warranty. Since my 'o6 has 40,000 miles, am I out of luck?

    It is worth the headache to get a FREE 1" rear suspension lift. Then add a front level lift (Ready lift spacers or coilovers) to complete the job. Maybe I will keep my RL spacers since I was worried about bottoming out when I had the bike in my bed a few months ago. Thanks for the TSB info. :D

    well, it may not be that much of a headache for some, and the ride quality is totally different, imo!! big difference from original to the tsb ride.

    Quick question: I really haven't experienced any "bottoming out" but I do have an '05 Tacoma with the 3 leafs - should I consider getting the TSB done? I don't know if I'll regret it later? I can't afford any leveling (even though I wish I could!) or any other type of work.

    yes, personally i think the ride is better with the tsb. if you're within warranty you should definitely try to get it done.

    i think your toyota guy is uninformed. the trd shocks are way better than the shocks that come on the sr5 trucks. good ol bilsteins.

    I'm going to the dealer this week to try and get the TSB done...I'm at 37K miles but I did buy the extended warranty (don't know if that makes a difference or not?)...Hopefully, they'll still do the work without any questions! I'll post the happenings...

    I had i tsb done also. After that the rear was so much higher than the front i hated it! So i installed a ready lift 2.25" spacer kit. Now it looks great. the rear is a half inch higher the the front.

    There is a copy of the tsb floating around on here somewhere. I printed it called all the local dealers to "test the water" all said thet had never heard of it. So i told them that with my quad and camping gear in the back it was hitting the bump stops going down the freeway. And it actually did. Btw. i just thought it was normal for a light duty truck. untill i seen the tsb . I took the truck in and showed them the tsb. He looked at the computer and he found the same exact one. After that he just ordered the parts.

    Got mine today. Took about a month of friendly persuasion and some luck I believe. Anyway, raised the rear of the truck approx. .75" and firmed up the ride to be more like a sports car. Not really harsh at all. It will probably settle to a set at closer to .5" after the first heavy load on the truck. I am quite pleased. :cool:
