    Ok, so this is my first post on the boards as I am new. I searched around a bit and couldnt find an answer to my question so here goes.

    I just bought a used 06 Tacoma (2.7L, 4x4, acess cab). I know about the TSB for the 07 tacomas with the leaft spring/suspension issue.

    My 06 has an extremley squeaky affect from the rear end whenever driving over bumps or anything at all (even with the bed empty).

    1)Does this sound like a leaf spring problem?

    2)Does the TSB cover the 06 models?

    The truck has less than 40,000 miles on it.

    Not sure about the squeak but you should be covered (05-07 Access & Double Cab 4x4 and Prerunners). TcBob posted a link to the bulletin in this thread. The TSB is for the truck bottoming out. If yours is a non-TRD truck, they're going to replace the shocks and add a leaf to the rear. Tell your dealer it's bottoming out under load (300-400 lbs). Count the leafs. If you have 4 on each side in the rear, it's already been done.

    Edit: the TSB is limited to 36,000 miles or less.

    The TSB is not to fix squeaks. The TSB is due to the rear end bottoming out when loaded. The TSB does cover 05-08 tacomas. It adds another leaf and upgrades the shocks.

    The TSB is not to fix squeaks, but it probably would fix them if you are lucky. Although you are 4000 miles over, you should try and talk them into fixing it. Complain that if you load it up with 800 pounds the truck rides on the stops and maybe they'll replace your springs and shocks.

    i think there was another tsb out there to grease the springs a certain way to get rid of the squeak. and if u have the extended warranty, u should be covered to 100k miles i think

    Hmm, thanks for the info guys, I appreciate the help. I do have a warrenty on the vehicle that is good till 75000 on the odo. Ill probably have to argue and hassle my way to getting the dealer to do it...I counted the leafs and there are only 3 so It hasnt had the work done to it before.
