 Description of the problemI was coming home from a trip and as i pulled into my driveway i heard this loud bang and metal flying and hitting the ground. I stopped the vehicle and shut the engine off to investigate and found under my truck a 25-inch piece of metal belonging to the suspension - leaf spring system that could be clearly seen as rusted through. I am very fortunate for this to occur in my driveway and not on the highway, loss of control to the vehicle or someone behind my vehicle getting hit by this heavy piece of metal was a good possibility ! I called a couple of dealers to get this replaced and found one that could take me in right away. There conclusion was the leaf spring had rusted and i still have in my possession the piece that rusted and came off. The total cost of this replacement for both leaf springs being replaced was $951. 83 i am bringing this to your attention because i am aware of a very similar recall with toyota trucks years 1995-2011 for leaf spring failure do to rusting ! I just use this vehicle for my daily driver, no heavy lifting or hauling just 12- miles a day 7 days a week and some trips throughout the years. Truck only had 53000 miles at time of incident.
