    I was wondering if a TSB carries over after the factory Warranty runs out? I have soft and weak rear springs and I am sure the TSB would rectify the issue, thing is I am not sure they care much about it after it is not warranted? Does anyone know if I can get TSB's done afterthe warranty is out if so what is the best method to get the work done? I would like to have the TSB leafs and if not and the answer to my question is flat NO, then what or who have any of the TW'ers used to get the desired ride and support out of the rear. I have heard good things about allcan leafs springs (anyone using them?) I do not want a lift kit but the extra lift would not hurt as I do plan on adding OME coils in the front. Any help would be awesome, THanks!! JOE>

    TSB coverage seems to end at 36,000/3 years. I suppose if you went to a dealer and were really nice you could try, worst they can do is say no. How far out of warrenty are you?

    TSBs still "apply" after the warranty, you are just probably going to be paying out of pocket unless you call Toyota corporate and they take pity on you.

    A TSB just spells out steps to try to remedy a customer complaint or common problem.

    TSB's only apply if the affected part is still under warranty. A TSB is not a recall - just a bulletin to help techs diagnose common problems.

    If a TSB is done after the warranty expires, it's usually due to "good faith" and is very uncommon.

    Correct.

    Just get a $80 AAL. Toyota will want $1600 to do the TSB out of pocket.
