    Technical Service Bulletin. It's instructions to the dealerships on how to fix a common problem that Toyota has recognized and come up with a planned diagnosis and solution.

    The rear spring TSB is because they make the trucks to ride smooth. But when you try to load them up with weight, they bottom out in the back and ride on the bump stops making the ride rough. So this TSB addresses that problem by replacing the rear leaf springs with another one that has an additional leaf in it.

    TSB: (Technical Service Bulletin) which is a communication between Toyota and its dealerships that can serve as an update to Toyota publications, describe parts updates, or relay enhanced or new service procedures. Service procedures may explain diagnostic steps, implementation of recommended updates, or how to perform certain repairs.

    SSC: (Special Service Campaign) If Toyota determines that a defect exists and decides that the defect is “related to motor vehicle safety,” per the Safety Act, the company will conduct a safety recall. In addition, for issues that are not “safety-related defects,” the company may decide to address a condition found in the field to enhance customer satisfaction. Sometimes the company may address such issues through a Special Service Campaign (SSC), under which vehicle owners are provided a free repair.

    TAS (Toyota Assistance System) Located in Torrance Ca. it is where technical information is gathered by Toyota. When a tech in the field is unable to find a fix for a vehicle they are repairing they contact TAS. TAS will then assist in the repair by searching there data base for similar repairs and assist in the repair and will then open a case number that the tech will have to close at the end of the repair. The information gathered during this repair will be input to the data base.

    FTS (Field Technical Specialist) In the event the dealership is unable to repair a vehicle they may call out an FTS from the region headquarters one FTS may cover 6-8 dealerships. These guys are usually x dealership MDT's (Master Diagnostic Technician's) that have been hired by the Toyota to assist in repairs at the dealership level. :cool:

    Basically a TSB is Toyota telling their dealerships that there is a problem but unless they get bugged to death, don't fix it. All Car companies do this. It's screw the consumer. No need for a recall. That's why My rear springs are shot and I am out of warranty. I'll just get air bags. It's one of the industry secrets. Stick 'em when you can and don't tell. The sooner you can check a TSB the better chance you MIGHT be in luck.
