    So i wen to the dealer today, only 5 min. from where i currently am:D, got my tranny tsb done, shifts alot better now. Also they ordered my TSB Springs which shoud be in on Wed.. Do i need to know anything or look for anything specific before the install? Also on the TSB itself it has a few pages of alignment specs... Will The truck need or get an alignment? or is no alignment needed with they new springs? i dont see why it would need one but im curcious if the truck will get or need an alignment?

    Thanks guys

    TSB calls for an alignment. Makes sure you mention it or they might not do it.

    Count your rear leafs and check the part numbers against the numbers on the TSB to make sure they actually replace them, although I think you'll notice the increased lift in the rear. Alignment is critical after the work is done.

    they should do the alignment as part of the TSB and give you a print out with the specs.

    not bad. a little firmer, yes, but not harsher.

    i prefer the feel of the tsb rear vs. without...

    I had the tsb done on my 2010 at 2000 miles. They said a alignment was not needed and it cupped my tires before 5000 miles. I had to fight like hell to get them to replace the tires. Make sure they align it.
