    The TAB refers to the rear leaf springs bottoming out with less than 500 lbs in the bed. Also, rear springs squeaking. They will do a AAL (add a leaf) and possibly new bushings along with an alignment. It is a whole new leaf pack. Will raise the vehicle about .5-1 inch

    If they have the TSB (for this particular issue), they have added a 4th leaf via Toyota/the dealership.

    Count your rear leafs to see if it was completed. Do you have 3 or 4?
