    So my driver side rear leaf spring has been squeaking for a while now everytime I get in or out of the truck or go over a bump....Its probably just dirt inbetween the leaves and I was thinking about just taking it all apart and installing some anti squeak shims....but then I decided i'd take advantage of my warranty and took it in.
    They are replacing both rear leaf springs and both rear shocks. They don't come in until tomorrow though. Getting new shocks out of the deal. Not that it needs them it only has 13k on it.

    Anybody else had this problem? I know about the TSB on the three leaves but it doesn't apply to the regular cab.

    It is always nice to hear about someone getting work done by Toyota for free. We spend a lot of money on our trucks, if something is wrong they should fix it.

    Well I just got Mudbug back. It doesn't squeak anymore! Its weird stepping out of the cab and not hearing a "crreeaaak" haha.

    So nobody else has had this issue? I'm just hoping it was just the set that was on it and not all of them because if thats the case I still have the same part number, just new ones.
