    Doubtful.

    As posted...I believe it comes down to money and ego.

    Also posted...a smaller dealership...or one in a smaller community with less service volume, will be more agreeable to do the TSB because it's a pay day for the service dept. part of the dealership...

    Whereas, a large volume dealership that has folks lined up for retail service work...may be less cooperative to do the lesser paying TSB or warranty work.

    I go to one of the larger Toyota dealerships in my state, and they questioned nothing and ordered my leaf pack, and put me in a rental for the 24 hours they had the truck on their dime

    So, does the truck gets higher when the leaf springs TSB is done?
    And if so, is the lift only in the rear?

    Slight 1 inch or one and a half inch has been reported here from those who have had it done to an otherwise stock truck.

    Rear only.

    Just like a pickup should be. And every Ford and Chevy I bought new was.

    The rear will settle down after some towing and or hauling use. At least that has been my experience with the domestic trucks that were tail high from new.
