Stock 2012 Suspension?

I have a stock 2012 Tacoma that has 4 leaf springs in the rear. Does this mean I have the TSB already installed? It appears to sit a little higher than my 2008 did.

Also, I read alot about the 5100's. Most of my driving is on the highway. If I go with them will I still have the smooth factory ride? Will it be smoother or a little rougher? I know everyone says they ride better than stock but in what sense, performance or ride smoothness?

I like the way it rides now, I am just looking to level it out. I considered putting a leveling spacers on top of the coils and shocks.
Have there been any issues with this?

I don't think any lifted truck on TW drives better then a stock one if your comparing both while driving on the highway. I'm sure plenty will disagree, but I just don't see it happening. The whole concept is flawed.

All i can say is if this spring TSB shit is still going on with new production years , Toyota hasn't changed a fucking thing, they need to put some decent springs on & call it good... oh wait i've already said this.....nevermind

But like most makers they poll the public as to what they want in a truck..

& too many people (here even) want all this unrealistic BS goes something like this.....


" Uhhh, i want 10" of lift with 12" of droop & a cadillac ride where ever I go, I want to be able to jump my truck 10ft in the air & drive home on a silky smooth quiet ride... did I mention I wanted a firmer/softer suspension with 10" of higher/lower lift.? " "Well thats what i want"

statement above is all over the map just like peoples expectations

unrealistic

I need new shocks in front of my Taco seeing bushings are worn out and it does bottom out when towing my boat. So if I replace with original billies in front and upgrade to 5100's in back will this fix my bottoming out prob? or am I better off doing 5100's all around and AAL?
