I've got a '99 Tacoma Xtracab with the TRD package - and the rear end seems pathetic. Load it up with a few lawn chairs and some camping gear and she squats like it's got 1000 lbs in it. Simply sitting on the tailgate it'll drop 6".
Are my leaf springs bad? Or is it the rear struts (or are they shocks, I never remember the difference). It seems it should hold way more weight than it does.
Any suggestion on what to get? I want to keep it mostly stock (ie, I don't want to lift it or anything like that). My offroading is limited to bumpy two-track once in awhile.
Thanks for the suggestions. I want her to look like a truck again! My buddy has a Silverado shortbox, and when we sit on the tailgate to drink beer and ponder life, it doesn't move. Given that's a heavier truck, but still.
