    Just wanted to thank all the guys that posted info on how to get the rear spring TSB done! Went to the dealer with print out in hand and it was done no questions asked in 2 days. Add Hillside Toyota in NJ to the list of dealers, see Bob in service, he got it done. Truck sits a bit higher and looks better in the rear, as for the drive I only drove it 3 miles to work this am so not sure about the drive. Thanks again for this great forum.

    You will really notice it when you have it loaded down. It won't squat down on the springs as much and will handle better. Congrats on getting it done.

    TRD short throw shifter, Eibach 1.6" lift coils 5100's on all corners, Ipod interface, Painted engine cover, radiator cover, skid plate, speaker grills overhead console, and added carbon fiber and chrome interior trim (Too much cheap plastic) TRD cat back, LED 3rd brake light. 100 lbs of sound deadner. Infinity ref. 6 1/2 all around. OBX pedals and shifter. DTRL mod, Alt. turn signal mod, LED's in glove box and console, LED's under dash lip and back A/C vent,Weather Tech mats. Took off antenea for wind noise
    Eibach coils and 5100s @ 0 have been on since May. It took a year of waiting but the dealer gave in.They even gave me a new Camry for the day. I was told it would have been $1200 for the leaf pack and alignment. 3 1/2 hours charged. Glad it was free. It was level before, now with TSB it has a slight rake 3/4" But the ride is better than I thought it would be. It is firm not too stiff. Next up will be tires. I do not want to go to .85 on the 5100s because I like the ride and rake I have. Looked at many tires just looking for someone who has my setup that and stock 17" rims. that went to 32" or so tires. RECAP: My setup. 2010 TRD sport DC Eibach 1.6@ 0.... all 4 5100's.... TSB done. I know I can get more tire on there and keep the stock rims. 275/70/17 are 32.2" stock are 265/65/17 and 30.6" they do not make tires that would be 1" bigger 265/75/17 32.6" I wish there was a chart for lift with tire size after hours of reading I am not sure what fits with out $pending. Every time I read someones post like mine they only get replys that involve more $$$$$$ so I dont want to go any higher with the lift, and do not want to buy new rims.

    I go because it is close to my work, Bob was helpful and they got it done quick with not problems!! Just tell them its a harsh ride with adults in the back seat....the other guy in service has a tacoma too and said they did his. Def worth doing it looks and rides better IMOA

    Ill give them a shot again,i heard theyre service dept. is not located in the sales building so i might not see the people that sold me the truck. i really had a very bad experience with the sales people that work there. thanks for the info!!!!

    i bought my truck used a little over a month ago. it's Toyota Certified and what not, and am just wondering how i can be sure any TSB's were done on it before i became the owner of it.

    most likely not. just count the number of leaf springs in the rear. if it has 3 it has not been done.
