    Don't screw up the truck though...you'll be needing to sell the LT kit in 6 months to pay rent. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the reply's.. so my options are to go to toyota and get the 4 leaf TSB or spend the cash for an aftermarket set to fix it right? Wish I could get the lift... but need it to fit in my garage!

    In all srsns, I vote Bilstein 5100 rears and an AAL if you're not doing anything crazy.

    TSBs aren't recalls, if you don't have symptoms of a problem then TSBs don't apply.

    It's about like asking your doctor if there are any outstanding surgeries.

    Go get it done. It's free until June, after that they'll rape you for the TSB job.
