leaf spring problem! help

Ok so i recently purchased an 08 dcsb prerunner. Im not sure if it has the tsb leafs or not and im not quite sure how to tell either way. The problem is the rear end starts "bouncing or hopping" at 55 mph and quits around 60 mph it drives me nuts bc its make the whole truck kinda bounce but i know its the rear bc when i look in my side view i can see the bed bouncing! Sorry for the long explanation but anyone heard of tgis? Maybe unbalanced wheel or bad leaf pack?

The tsb pack would have 4 leafs, I don't know about bouncing. My best guess would be an alignment issue but I'm mechanically retarded....

try having your wheels balanced, if not then I'd suspect shocks

I think I remember reading about a guy who 's truck wouldn't stop bouncing around at highway speeds. Turned out the shop that put the lift on didn't have the right psi in the tires, but he was also running 35's on a 6 inch lift.

I would check for that?

If you're covered under warranty, take it to Toyota and let them diagnose it and repair it.

I would also suspect either an out of balance tire or you have a separated belt in one of the rear tires.
