Leaf Springs

I just looked at my leaf springs yesterday. They dont have a "happy face" look on the springs. They have a "frown" shape. Anyone else have issues with their leafs?

Tommorow I am going to order a set of customised springs from this company.

I know of one guy that didn't like his Wheeler's Offroad spring. He said that they cracked very quickly. But maybe he just got a bad set.

Does he do a lot of off-roading? I dont plan on doing any offroading... I have a CR250 for that...

I put the wheeler AALs on my Tundra. Awsome ride. Much quieter than my Procomp AALs that I replaced.

I offroad a lot, btw.


Toyota leafs are infamous for being rediculously weak.

I agree with that. My 2" Cornfed shackles have wore out my stock leafs out fast. It's okay cause after I re-do my lift I might be sitting on some custom 5" leaf springs.

I'm jealous. I would have gone with the deaver leaf packs instead of the AAL but I do haul and the deavers kill payload/towing

Go to that site and click on the saggy rear end at the bottom left corner of the page, and the other write-ups, very interesting stuff with just adding coils on the leaf springs, did it on my 87 4runner.

They also got a thread on 4x4wire.com forum :

http://www.4x4wire.com/forums/showfl...5&o=31&fpart=1

explains it in that thread, happy reading.

Just received those springs today. I am on my 3rd Toy truck and have had to augment the rear suspension on all of them. Stock springs are practically on the bumpstops at full payload when the trucks are new. I am installing the 3 leaf add kit and I will try to include the overload leaf. This formula has worked for me in the past.

There is a Toyota TSB on this problem and a dealer fix covered by the warranty. Might want to talk to your dealer
