    Next time search, this has been covered thousands of times.

    The ride will be firmer. You will be able to carry loads like your supposed to. Most people only get .5" of lift out of the TSB springs after they settle.

    Hey dude, my Tacoma sits 3/4 inch higher in the back. I love the new ride. It handles much better. I would think Toyota wouldn't do the TSB if it affected the bushings. Get it done, you won't be disappointed.

    Mine gained quite a bit of lift at first something like 3/4" but settled out to under 1/2. I would definately get it done. If you look it up on here make sure to look up TSB, as opposed to TBS.

    Welcome Jim, and maybe it should be under TBS (Toyota BS) as they've known about this problem for awhile. Anyway you will like the end result as far as ride and not bottoming out.
