Lurker saying "hi"

I've been lurking for a while, thought I should say, "hi"

Hi!!!

I have a 2008 Prerunner SR5 (not TRD or 4X4). I've got a lot of info here on the spring TSB and searched like crazy about lowering kits. I got the spring TSB done today and thought I'd post some questions about it that I didn't find in searching. I'll start another thread for that.

I use my Tacoma for general home hauling (not much) and carrying a motorcycle or two sometimes. It's carrying the motorcycle(s) that moved me to get the spring TSB done.

I had a 2001 Tacoma for several years and it was a great truck. I never did any mods to it, though. It was lost (totalled) in an accident and I bought the new Tacoma because of my satisfaction with the 2001. So far, the 2008 is fine.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Thanks!

I posted my question on the spring TSB
Rear Spring & Tailgate TSB Quick Reference (post 28). Appreciate any response you guys might have as to why the ride height is raised, especially how the front was raised.

Thanks guys!
Great forum! I've been enjoying reading several threads. Incredible amount of good info here. Still trying to find out how the front of the truck got raised a half inch when the front shocks were replaced as part of the spring TSB.
