    Check the bumpstops and see if they have been hitting the frame.

    If your not bottoming out, then you really dont need it. You could get by with an AAL. BUT, it probably couldnt hurt to talk to the dealer about it.

    The best thing I've ever done to my truck was the rear spring TSB. I'd say with a cap and tools it'd be a MUST. I highly recommend it! It will cost you nothing and it rides much better even with an empty bed.

    Some people have not had any problems with their trucks to want/need it done.

    When mine is loaded, I was hitting the bump stops - I have the wear marks to prove it.

    There are part numbers on the springs that will let you know if you are ELIGIBLE for the tsb - not that you HAVE to get it done.
