    I have had my 2005 v6 DC for about a week. It has 70,000 miles on it and I have no idea what the factory warranty went to. I purchased a 3 year, 36,000 mile warranty from the dealer when i bought it. Does anyone know if I can use my aftermarket warranty to get the rear leaf TSB done at my local dealership?

    Doubtful,worth a try nonetheless but you may have to go with AAL's,You could add it yourself if your good with tools.Otherwise what do you plan to do with the truck ?Might be a waste of your time if you plan on adding more height or oversized tires.

    I have an '05 Double cab w/ 36,000 miles. After reading all the threads regarding the TSB, I went out to look at mine. Sure enough 3 leaf. I tow a 4000 lb travel trailer. It does sag a little when hitched. Should I replace them with the 4 leaf, or am I now paranoid? It looks like it previously bottomed out. Thanks. Oh, I have the blocks, but the leafs do look flat.

    You can try...but I doubt you'll get it. Aftermarket AAL or complete springs is the way to go.

    Thanks. I figured I'd give it a try atleast. Would you recommend getting original equipment or another quality brand of leafs?

    If you can swing purchasing a leaf set off someone who have the 4 leaves....Go for it.
    Other wise- Talk to a local spring/suspension company or get an AAL to make up the difference. Also looking at options for lifting versus replacement at stock height.

    I have the one inch blocks in the rear, but it still isn't quite level. I'll probably price new ones unless I get lucky and find someone in Florida. The shipping would kill me.
