    I had the rear TSB done on Thr. morning on my 07 prerunner, @ Miller Toyota in Culver City. All I told them was the truck was bottoming out with my bike in the back. They checked it out on Wed. ordered the parts and did it the next day. Here are the before and after pics. The truck feels great.

    Now you need to work on the front! Time to level it off and put some larger tires. Looking good... you got to keep it rolling.

    I had to go to my dealer three times before they would do mine. Persistence is the key to success with this issue.
    Hang in their

    $1,400.00 ±$100 for the dealer to do.
    Thats quote price, may be cheaper in person from dealer to dealer, but it's mostly parts and they don't seem to budge on part prices much.

    Way better to get AAL's or an aftermarket 4 leaf. You'll have money left over to get all 4 Bilsteins 5100's.

    And I believe it's the current consensus and correct me if I'm wrong, but 1" total is what to expect after settled in.
    Thats what I got anyway.

    I just called my dealership, they will replace the 3 leaf pack with a 4 leaf pack and replace the front and rear shocks with the upgraded bilsteins(i just have the sr5 suspension). 0 cost.

    My dealership put my TSB springs on today and I am very happy. They were very professional and helpful. They have already ordered my new TSB Tranny seal (where the tranny meets the drive shaft) and will call me when they are ready to install it. I like the TSB stated, slow leakage there and it is corrected by putting a new double seal transmission seal on the rear to replace the single seal currently on.

    The new TSB springs have 4 leafs per side. The three leaf packs are stock... If they merely replaced the three leaf packs you need to take it back or take it to another dealership all together.
