    Is it possible to order a new Tacoma from a dealership with the 4 pack leaf springs installed at the factory?

    I am looking to purchase a DC TRD Sport.
    I would rather have the factory install the 4 pack leaf springs.

    It would be much more convenient.

    Highly doubt it. The TSB is not a recall or an upgrade package...It's based on customer complaint.
    You might be able to finagle getting the dealership to order the parts and install them before delivery-but the 2011 aren't technically covered by the TSB yet I don't think.

    So short story- You can try...but I doubt it.

    Use it as a bargaining chip. I wish made an issue of it since I am hitting the bump stops with only 1000 miles left on my warranty. Time to make an appt.

    That is cool that they will do it for Canada.

    Bargaining chip for sure.

    I know the TSB is not available for the 2011.
    That is why I question if Toyota would simply install a 4 pack leaf spring
    at factory regardless of a TSB or a Recall or a Suspension package that is not offered.

    I'll call on Monday to some dealerships and see what they say.

    I'm sure they will promise me anything just to get me on the lot.

    They won't "do it" for Canada. Canadian sold Tacomas are built with a 4-leaf pack. Different country, different build.

    Dealerships will not special order. What you see is what you get.

    Toyota knows that this has been a problem with the US market.
