    OK, so I bitched about no suspension, bitched about no love for customer loyalty getting TSB done even tho over 36k, bitched how Toyota manufacturing turning big 3ish, blah, blah blah. Yeah, anyway, here to balance that out somewhat with the anti-rant about how I'm glad they didn't do it now because it made me go do it myself & get the 5100 setup with Toytec leveling spacer & TSB AAL. So much better! My stock shit was in such poor shape that I got 3 inch lift in front with TRD springs/5100s set on highest setting. Got 2 inches out back just using 1.5 TSB AAL. Still have a 1 inch rake towards the front too. There is no harshness at all with 5100s set all the way on 2.5, don't know why anyone would think that. Ride is no harsher than stock was only firmer & much more controlled. I know, I know...THIS THREAD IS USELESS WITHOUT PICS!!! Pics will be forthcoming. Just finished late last night going over stuff & re-aiming the headlights down. Waiting on the new tails to arrive soon for the photo session. Also got my Thule xsporter telescoping racks for haulin the kayaks/longboards safely. Happy happy joy joy! :D Now I'm gonna need the aluminum skid & some sliders for step rails & maybe that procomp light bar......never ends, lol.

    Hey, rant all you want buddy. Im in the same boat. I freaked out here a couple months ago about my springs. I finally accepted what I have to do and am saving for the parts now. F$%&$# sucks though. I know how you feel. best of luck!

    So you got the TSB after 36k? did you have to pay for it or did they end up doing it for free?

    congrats on the new setup tho!

    No, no TSB after 36k. I got 5100s & Toytec TSB AAL - the 1.5 that fits either TSB or non TSB leafs. Yota paid nada........
