    I just had the rear tsb done on my 2007 access cab sr5 2wd non-prerunner truck yesterday. What a difference it has made. Rides a little firmer without the Cadallic bounce after you hit a small bump. I went to the local dealer and complained about the "harsh" ride when loaded and he order the parts from the tsb and installed them on the rear. The front coilover shocks would not fit, so he did not do anything to the front. I pointed out to them that the rear springs were mounted on the bottom of my axle instead of the top of the axle like the tsb showed. He said that all tacoma springs would fit any tacoma on the top of axle or under. Now i need to test it out with a load, but i am sure it will be a lot better.

    Wow that good that he did it...i thought only access and double cab 4x4 and prerunners were eligiable.

    Nice Score

    They mounted the springs in the correct place for my truck, under the axle

    Nope....all access cabs and double cabs are eligible, new TSB does not specify 4x4 or prerunner.
    :D
    The old TSB SU006-07 specified 05-07 Prerunner and 4x4 Tacos except Regular Cab, the update TSB 0305-08 reads all Double Cab and Access Cab Tacos.
    My opinion is they messed up the wording on the update and didn't intend to include 5 luggers, because as the OP noted the parts per TSB do not fit. I'd think if a 5 Lug access cab was eligible then why not a reg cab, don't they have the same suspension?

    How about some pics of this access cab w/TSB? I'd like to see how it stands now.
