    So, I have had my Taco for 3 weeks. Hauled "big" bikes, pulled car and trailer and have not noticed any "squeaking" from my springs.

    OK, but I want the 4 leaf ones:D from the TSP fix. So here is my question, what is my story for the service guy? I am still under warrenty yet.

    If this is out of line, Mods feel free to trash it.

    You must go the dealer and complain that the truck is bottoming out when the truck is under normal load. The dealer has the right to inspect and verify the condition.

    I see you have a 2006. Your work will not be covered under warranty. The TSB is only for 3 year/36K miles. You will most likely have to pay out of pocket for the 4-leaf pack.

    If you've done a fair amount of towing/hauling and didn't notice anything then you're probably good with the set-up you've got. Mine bottomed out pretty bad with a sport bike in the bed (about 450 lbs) and I couldn't imagine attempting to tow anything with the old leafs I had. Some people posted stories on here where they got the dealer to cover parts if they paid the install because their truck was out of warranty. Good luck to you!

    I say try it. Go with the bottoming out story. Mine was out of the 3/36,000 and was able to convince them to do it with very little hustling. Just insist that it isn't right Toyota put out a truck that isn't able to carry what it is rated to carry.
    Good luck!
