    So Toyota decided to give me 750- towards fixing my TSB issue. My truck is out of warranty and would like to know what you think I should do based on this.

    -Shocks?

    -Leaf Springs?

    -Anything Else?

    The invoice for my TSB fix came out to be close to $2000k so you'll have to still cover well over a $1000. Do you really need this upgrade?

    I would really like the leaf springs and maybe do the 5100's later.

    I think he isn't getting cash, he's probably getting $750 off the TSB work from the dealership.

    I have to get the work done at the dealership and I get reimbursed from the work that gets done. I have to get either leafs, shocks or springs I think. Whatever comes with the TSB. So I get to pick what I want.

    I'm sure you can get a while decent set up with 750-Find a good shop and get them to price you out 5100s with the needed parts.

    Here is how it is supposed to go down:

    1. I get an approved order from the dealership
    2. I pay with my credit card
    3. They reimburse me

    I can only get stuff related to this TSB

    any thoughts on what would be best.

    What are the costs of each option? If you're going to get the 5100s eventually, I'd probably go for the leaf springs.

    Yeah...I agree..If it's gotta be the TSB parts...Get the leafs

    Then, hang on to them until you are ready to install the 5100's. Not having the dealership install them will save you a few bucks.
