Crack on rear leaf spring??

Hey guys,

I'm new to all of this, but this doesn't look right to me - I noticed it today while I was washing my truck. Anyone ever had this happen to them before? BTW, it is a 2004 Tacoma DC...thanks! Not sure why the picture keeps uploading sideways, but whatever.

Okay, that's what I figured. Any suggestions on which replacements to buy? I'm not looking for any lift right now, and it seems like most that I find have 2" of lift or more.

Given where the break actually is, you need to make haste on repairing this. Whether you choose to go to a salvage yard, a spring shop, replacing the entire packs or just the top leaf, do it quickly.

If the top leaf falls apart, you will loose control of the vehicle.

Yep, planning on ordering the replacements from Wheeler's tomorrow. Luckily, I have a 1988 Toyota Cressida (oh yeah!!) that's just waiting to be driven! That'll be my DD for the next week or so until I get the new leafs. Anyone else have feedback on these...

Hey don't pick on those Cressida's. i believe 88 was close to when they changed engine's but the inline 6 that came with the first ones was one hell of a engine.
