    Well i finally broke down and went into the dealership for a replacement hood. I dealt with a great service parts guy who was interested in the plans i have for the truck (suspension lift, new rear bumper, replacement grill) and i decided what the hell... let's see what this guy knows.

    I gave him the "bottoming out with light loads" speech that everyone said to use, and it worked! New leafs will be on tomorrow!!!!

    Also - he mention that there is a new TSB involving our computers and pedals, that's just about two weeks old... They said they would handle it at the same time. All and all i'm extremely pleased with there service!

    SO if your in South Texas, Check out Mike Shaw Toyota in Corpus Christi.

    I'm having mine done tomorrow as well. Just got the call that the springs were in. I have an appointment at 9:00 am to drop it off.

    I picked up my truck last night after i scheduled a hat trick of TSB's (pedal, leaf springs, some computer thing).

    The pedal is just fine... I can't really tell hos much they trimmed, and it didnt affect the way i drive.

    The Computer stuff... No clue. Truck is humming along as always!

    The real leafs - HOLY SHIT! The rear of my truck seems to drive much tighter, which doesnt bother me at all. Also it aded maybe a 1" lift to the back (which doesn't bother me at all).

    All in all good experience.

    Yeah, I picked mine up yesterday afternoon. I love the ride now. Much firmer and tighter and less body roll going around corners. It feels much more like I expected the truck to when I bought it. I'm really glad I did it.

    i think the ride is so much better with leaf tsb. it will soften up and settle especially if you put any loads back there.

    I believe the ToyTec set up comes with the additional leaf similar to the one they add for us in the TSB. So based on the leaf set up alone you should be equivalent to our trucks (sans the bad ass lift!!).

    I'm actually going to get the same lift set up as soon as i get the green light from the wifey :rolleyes:

    I filled it with awesomeness
    Picked mine up yesterday as well and highly recommend getting it done. I don’t really do any hauling and was a little leery about getting it done, but it definitely makes for a better ride.

    I'm picking mine up today. The service advisor made sure I knew it would be a rougher ride, "kinda like a truck" he said. My response was, "I bought a truck, not a sedan, so I'm okay with a truck feel..."
