    My truck doesn't seem to be sagging or anything, but the leaf springs seem to be flat. For some reason, I remember my leaf springs bending more. Could you post a picture of your leaf springs or just tell me what they are supposed to look like. I'm worried I'm going to have to replace mine.

    Here's mine three months off the lot. I qualified for the TRD 4 Leaf Pack TSB.
    I see you're out of warranty, so an AAL (Add-A-Leaf) would be your best option, short of a new leaf pack.
    The pic is from a thread I started a couple years ago (link below), asking the same question as your's.

    Do my 2010 Leaf Springs look like they need the TSB ???
