    didn't want to thread jack and didn't really see an answer to my question anywhere else so here goes. Bought my first Taco almost a year ago{love it} its an 07 acc. cab 2.7 all stock for now and I just heard about TSB and I'm trying to figure out if I still have time left with warranty to get it done or if it's to late? I've hauled a couple heavy loads and noticed the rough ride plus I tow a pop-up so I would really like to have this done if possible. The nearst dealship to me is Kern Toyota in Winchester,Va I don't know if they're giving people the run around or not.Thanks in advance if it was wasn't for you guys I wouldn't even have known about this.

    Date you took delivery of the vehicle.

    Edit: nvm I was thinking you got it brand new, but yea you're right initial titling then.

    You will have to search the threads, but there have been one or two guys who have gotten it done after the 3/36,000 warranty.

    Can't remember where I saw it though :eek:

    I've read that before too and it was more than a couple guys IIRC. How many miles do you have in the truck now? I suppose it would be a coin toss with the dealer...never hurts to give it a shot! What's the worst they can tell you, right?

    Yeah it can't hurt to try.I've got 34,700 miles on it now so I'm good as far as mileage goes.

    well visited the stealership and they told me I was out of luck w/the TSB.Disappointed but it was worth a shot. what do you think would be a good reasonably priced fix? I just don't have a bunch of cash right now to put into it. do you think a set of helper springs from advance or auto zone would work? I remember a thread here were some body put a set of helpers on backwards would that be the better way to do it?

    after reading more in depth I see the folks mounting the helpers backwards are using them for traction, has anybody actually installed them per directions for load cap. not that I plan to try to hual 1500 more lbs. just want to not have so much sag with my trailers or 4-wheeler or a little wood on the back. Thanks

    What are helper springs and how do they use them for traction? Could something like this help you out? http://www.timbren.com/ses-kits.htm I don't use them, but probably would consider them if I was in need.

    Have you considered an air bag system? That way you could still have the soft ride when unloaded and the stiffer suspension when you need it. I was going to go that route until I found out about the TSB.
