Post here if your TTUE has broken springs

Just trying to get a idea on how many TTUE's have experienced broken springs. I know a lot of owners have lifted the TTUE's but if the person you sold them to complains post that as well.
Should we get Vin#'s? so we can tell Toyota? I wondering when I get mine replaced if I should ask to keep the spring, what good would that do?

Toyota is replacing it for free but its taking 4-6 weeks to get the part from Japan, so no off-roading this month.
