    Same concept with warranty based on years or mileage. They set a date. If you don't agree you must appeal to toyota corporate. It is reviewed case by case

    it's not a recall, it's a limited service campaign (LSC).
    they put limits on the vehicle years it covers, the states the trucks were registered in, and the duration of the campaign.
    did you get a letter?

    Yes got a letter, but they said they would send another letter when they had a solution. I ignored it, I want to put a lift on it so I thought I would have the frame looked at before I did anything.

    My rear leaf spring recall letter finally arrived today. It states dealer will inspect and if necessary, replace. Hardly any rust at all under my 2007, so I doubt I'm getting new springs.

    My '08 failed the inspection. Waiting on the parts to arrive. Could be waiting a couple of months.

    Well, I'll eat my hat. I took my 07 Sport in yesterday for the spring inspection. The service guy asked right off the bat if didn't mind waiting a couple hours they would install the new spring kits. He didn't even look at anything except check the odometer, so I don't know if 112K automatically qualified or what, I didn't ask any question, only "that will be fine with me." He mentioned they had gotten a big shipment of the parts recently so sounds like they were eager to start using them.

    So and hour and a half later I was driving out with new springs and I'm pretty sure there was no serious corrosion at all underneath my truck.

    No corrosion here as well. Truck rides better with the new spring kit.

    My 09 Taco got totaled and I bought a low mileage 2012 TRD Sport. It appears to have 4-leaf springs and they don't sag, so I assume the recall has been done. Is there a good way to know without trusting the dealer to know?

    Also, do you folks know if there are there any issues specific to the 2012 model year?

    This truck was supposed to be "Toyota Certified", and have all the updates, but that whole business is a joke IMO.

    Thanks Jack. I did look up the recalls online.

    But how do I tell if the springs on my 2012 were replaced or not?

    Is their some special markings for the recall springs?

    I'd call or visit the dealer... if you had any work done on the truck, they will know your VIN, ask the Service Adviser for the status on your truck's leaf springs. If no work done on the truck, give them the VIN. He'll be able to track it, easier than having you and me both crawl under the truck and look for a number...

    The truck came new from Socal & I bought it used from a Norcal dealer. He claims "all the recalls were done" because it was "Toyota Certified".

    But they didn't do them. I'd need to track down the socal dealer.

    When are they going to man-up and take responsibility for the blood curdling wind noise that always catches off guard, like when you're trying to get some shut-eye on the frwy after long days work. This will not do!
