    a "special service campaign" letter from Toyota with a new yellow sticker declaring a weight reduction of 45 pounds from original specs. It further states that "the origianl addendum label overstates the weight of accessories added to my vehicle".

    So if my origianl label reduced my weitght by 290 pounds, and this one says that is incorrect and it is only 45 pounds, and I had the TSB done, what do I have? And yes, this is on the SAT.

    Why for not? I had the TSB done to bump up my load rating to origianl specs. Now they say the sticker is wrong, but I already have beefier springs. What is my new rating?

    I have not heard of Toyota re-rating a vehicle due to spring replacement. Your new official rating is the original published rating of the truck minus 45 pounds.

    It might be capable of more with the new springs, but I doubt that you will get Toyota to admit to it.
