    I just had the rear leaf spring TSB done yesterday and thought I would share my results. It took about two and a half hours and it raised the rear exactly 1". The ride is a bit stiffer but I think it feels more sure footed for some reason, also I had over 700lbs of people in the truck last night and we hit some major bumps and it did great over them. IMO this is a must do. I will try and get some pics later:D
    Here are some pics:

    I went to Right Toyota. I called the day before and told them I wanted it done, the guy was straight up with me and said okay lets get you in for it, and by chance they had a TSB leaf spring set laying around so they installed it the next day:D

    I was worried that they said that my lift would void the TSB, but I guess I got lucky because my guy just went ahead and did it, leaving the blocks in the back and adding the new leaf springs.

    So, Toyota has agreed to do the Rear TSB. I am adding some 265 75 BFG At's to the stock trd wheels. They said they would install my new 1.5" lift front coil springs for $250. He said he will do the alignment after the coils go on. Any thoughts on Toyota doing the work at that $$$??

    I had mine done last week with no problems at Camelback Toyota. Took it for him to look at and he said he had the parts so I left it. Mine is a 06 DC 4x4 with 35,250 miles so I just made it in time.

    Any thoughts on the $250 for Toyota to put the coils on?? Thought it would be nice to let Toyota do the whole job

    Mine is scheduled for 19 Jun to get the TSB done... The service manager said he didn't care - it was money for them... I'd have had it done today, but he said they dont have loaner vehicles and the 19th is the first day I have free to get it done.
