Well I wasn't fully ready to pull the trigger on new suspension components, but a quick look at my truck this afternoon has pushed me over the edge. I have a broken leaf spring on the drivers side. I will be purchasing new leaf packs and placing the order tomorrow. There is no way I'd put Toyota springs back on this thing. The ones that came factory are the canadian 4 leafs and they sagged as soon as I started hauling my quad around.
I'd like the rear to be a little more stiff because I haul a 14ft trailer with quads. As for lift I don't really want it to be more than 1 1/2" - 1 3/4".
Option 1: Dakars with 3rd leaf removed. Can people that have done this chime in on what their center hub to fender measurements are? Or just any info at all would be appreciated, about height gained, settling etc.
Option 2: Wheelers HD leaf spring. Anyone with experience? I searched around and doesn't seem to be that much info on them.
For reference I have a 2007 DCLB SR5 with 200000km. My rear measurements now are 22inches both sides with a little less than 1/4 tank of fuel.
All help is appreciated I'd like to make a more informed purchase tomorrow because I need my truck in a couple weeks, so I'd like to get this stuff ordered ASAP.
