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?

Hi! I just wanted to pass the word. I talked to Toyota Headquarters today and they want complaints about the springs. They will escalate it to their engineers. Please call and complain. 18006885912. Just a FYI.

Dang had no idea till now this was happening to folks, scary. Do ya'll with this issue live in rust prone areas?
Not sure if rust prone states are the main reason, but it certainly affects the wear of components. Here in MN, the state dumps salt, sand and ice melt chemicals all winter. From November thru March/April.

Yes Minnesota is known for its salt.. But, this does appear to be in the same place on both sides. I am thinking a mfg defect.
I went to the dealership this morning and they had no issue replacing them. (Said this is the first time seeing this) but as "OK, we'll order up some new ones for ya" as they were. I think they have seen it.

Hopefully, according to the parts guy, should have them by end of the week!! FINGERS CROSSED!!
