    Hi,
    I just bought a Canadian 08 DC TRD and have been asking lots of questions here lately. This will hopefully be my last one for a while. Lots of people talk about this "rear TSB." My truck has 5 leafs and a helper spring. I would like to put the truck back to stock. I looked at an 06 TRD and see it has two springs and a helper but checking on a 2011, I see it has three. I was going to have two leafs removed which would leave me with three and a helper spring. Should I just take out one to leave me with 4?? I don't usually carry heavy weight in the box, so I don't mind if it squats once in a while. Also, I am planning to put an OME lift in it next year which comes with a rear leaf. Does this leaf act differently than the one I may have in now?
    The truck rides so rough I can barely stand it, and the rear of my truck is about four inches higher than my friends TRD. Plus, I have a shake in it that I would like done under warrantee and I don't want to be told that since my rear end is so high in the air, it frigs something up and now they won't cover it.


    Thanks a lot

    Kris

    I just got it!
    Take 2 out. See how it rides. It'll probably be drastic improvement in ride quality.

    I will trade you some non tsb springs for yours if you want a better ride. I am willing to sacrifice a little bit of comfort for the taller ride. Let me know?? JOE?
    P.S. if you are not interested than you can remove a leaf or two and see how this works. If you are not quite pleased you can put one back in and try it then swap a different spring if that is not good either, or trade me. HEHE
