    I took a look under my '09 Tacoma, and it definately only has three leaves on the springs. I'd kinda assumed that since this was a TSB for earlier models, that it would be incorporated stock on the new ones; but evidently that's not so.

    Does anyone know if there's a new TSB out yet that covers the 2009's? I'd probably like to have this mod done.

    I don't think so. It was supposed to be corrected half way through 2008.

    The TSB doesn't even cover the '08's

    I read somewhere here that there is different letter codes after the leaf spring part number which identify a newer spring. Likie an F or G??? Its somewhere here or maybe the guy/gal who knew it will post or you can do a search this forum try.

    My head's too damn big to fit in there, but all I see is CHI on the top of my springs.

    :thumbsup:

    Good idea. I'd rather try that then have my head stuck in my fender behind the tire out in front of my office :D

    Ok, confirmed that I have the 'G' springs.
