Add a leaf in rear, leveling kit in front

I drive a 2010 Tacoma and haul my 500lb atv in the back. The rear sags enough to make me wanna add some help. I'm thinking about adding a leaf in the rear and putting a leveling kit up front. Any ideas on a kit or how much to raise the front with the added leaf in the rear. Thanks

That's one option, or you could just put airbags in the back.

There are lots of kits from toyotatec and other companies that are available online.

Did you get the TSB springs? Do you even have to ask (beg) for them still on a 2010?

God knows you do on a 2011.

They are treating me like a moron when I ask that the rear TSB be done on my '11 Tacoma.

I just went into my dealer today to get some things done to my 09 and just mentioned that my truck can barely handle 500lb and they just called to say they are keeping my truck overnight and the tsb will be completed by noon tomorrow. I thought it was going to be a battle based on some of the stories I've heard on here. They even gave me a tacoma as a loaner.

They're coming around... the dealership tried selling me a Tundra when I complained about it bottoming out with a motorcycle in the bed of the truck. I found the TSB and was able to keep the Tacoma and had them put new leafs on! The bike weighs about 450 so very similar to your quad.
