    Only the maglight mod,mounted on floor drivers side, billet antenna and have lined all storage under rear seats with rubber to keep the rattling to a minimum.
    What do I look for on my truck to know if I need this TSB? Wanna have an idea before I approach the dealership. 2007 QC TRD OR, 31,421 mi. still under warranty for three more years.

    Some trucks don't "need" the tsb. They ride just fine on the stock springs.

    Check your bump stops... if they're worn at all, then you probably should look into getting it done.

    i have a question about eligibility too. i have an '09, with the sticker on the door talking about the reduction in load weight in the bed. But it says it's only a reduction of 2lbs. I haven't loaded a ton of weight in it yet, so not sure how it rides under load. I'm thinking with such a small reduction, i wouldn't be eligible, nor would I need it? But maybe I'm just clueless on what the TSB is actually used for?

    Do a search around for the TSB file, read it and you'll find out if your truck applies.

    You need to look on the front page of the TSB at the "Applicability" for your year, and the "Additional Information" for your body & drive type, then also look at the "VDS" make sure that the 4 alpha numeric serial number appears in your trucks "VIN" number to see if its one of the ones that covered under this TSB.

    Drive the truck for a week or so and then remeasure the the height.
    Found i had 1.5 inches of lift right after the TSB was done.
    About a week later i remeasured the back and it settled to where i only had 1 inch of lift in the back.
    So when i installed the billy's, i set it at .85 instead of the 1.75 i was planning to.
