    I do not tow any thing with my truck but i do load it up every now and then and have felt those bump stops way too much but i am kinda worried that the tsb will jack up the back too much and it will look funny or ride bad.

    You will have the truck sitting with a rake. I say get it, even though you will keep the truck stock.

    If you're worried, get it. Better to have it than not in my book especially since they could deny you as it's a wear and tear part if you're high mileage

    I recommend that you get it. I did and I have an otherwise stock suspension. The rake is only slightly more than without the TSB. I paid attention to the ride before and after the TSB, there was very little difference. It does carry loads a lot better.

    Get it the TSB makes the ride a tiny bit more like a truck and a bit less than a 1970's era caddy and the rake is minimal. My truck handles and rides much better.

    Get it...Mine doesn't have a problem but I'm getting it done as a precaution and as a basic free AAL! :D And if the rake is too much for ya get some 5100s to help flatten it out from DSM!

    WHY NOT? its already got rake, and hits the bumps stops often. Why not get the TSB. will cost quite a bit to do after your warranty expires.

    Ok, if you never haul anything and like the squirrely ride, stick with what you got.
    Had my rear leaf TSB done shortly after purchase and the truck seems to take the bumps better, less body roll, and it can actually haul more than a couple of bags of groceries without squatting.
    Toyota has always had trucks that putting so much as a canopy/cap/shell on the back causes the headlights to head for the ozone.

    I like my truck and I want to be able to use it like a truck. Just my thoughts.

    Had my truck done a year and a half ago. Love it!! I do like the rake, so no biggie on that. Truck takes my road trips 1000% better now. The wind doesn't blow me around as much and rides much better.

    If your bump stops show any wear, then get the tsb done.

    I vote do it, it is a truck, personally I would rather have more spring power than less, my regular cab is not eligible or I would do it for sure.

    Get it done, and then tell them you want all your old parts...

    it's pretty easy to go back to origional if you don't like it and then you can sell the new parts...

    But really, I think you will like it...I had mine done and it is really not noticable because the first inch or so of travel is just like stock. It's when you LOAD it DOWN do the additional leafs take effect...

    From a very skeptical old fart that doesn't want it lifted, I ate crow and did it. I'm glad I did. I hardly notice much rise in the back. I would vote to do it.

    Your stealership will have to return the original parts to Toyota. He will not get the option to get the old parts.
