Northridge toyota in the Sn Fernando valley did my spring, shock change last week. I am real happy with it. The truck is a little stiffer but handels so much better.Tried to get the tailgate done but was told that I had to have it bent first, go home and bend it. I am 73 years old and cannot bring myself to do it. So far when loading our dirt bikes (92 wr500-87 wr450) we notice that a little sag in the tailgate , but are careful to stay to the side of the gate. Just have to wait and see. Buy the way, my truck is an 06 sr5 4 door, white in color. Was always a Ford man but my son had me try a Toyota this time. I am pretty happy with it, but cannot undertand having to change springs and the light weight tailgate, never had this problem with my Fords, First one in 1955.
I have added the tailgate strap on the one side and also where the cables attache to the bed drilled small holes and put safety wire across the opening so they could not be liftede off with ease.
I added tie downs to the bed thru the bed hold down bolt and put in a deezee rubber mat . When unloading the bikes the front tire would slide and
