    I have never paid much attention to rear spring TSB discussions, since I was already long past my eligibility for the TSB when I first heard about it. But I have a question (that has probably been discussed ad nausium): I understand that the TSB provides 1-1.5" of rear lift compared to non-TSB, yes? So my question is does the stealership do anything besides swap out the leaf pack, such as do any tweaks to driveline angles like shims or bearing drops?

    They change the packs and that's it in the rear. Nothing else.

    If the OP read all those TSB threads that he never really paid attention to he would know the question to his own answer.:rolleyes:

    I am new and have posted questions on how to fix my rear springs on my 02prerunner. The truck will rock 6" forward and backwards when in park and only the springs flex,wonder if the tsp fixes this or what does. Suggestions were to 'add a leaf! My springs were made in Mexico, any history of problems with them. Also the truck was used for moving a lot as told to me by the original owner. Really getting tired of the flex underneath every time I stop.

    The TSB is for the 2nd gen Tacomas. I have never heard of any problems with the leaf springs other then them allowing the suspension to bottom out with a slight load on the 2nd gens. Do you have any kind of lift or anything? The slop you are talking about might be from bad U joints.

    OP , the TSB springs will settle to approximately 3/4" over stock .

    This will be hastened by the amount of weight you haul in your truck .
