NEWEST UPDATE:: please read my last pos descibing the issues. something of a "weight shifting" when stopping, greased driveline and it stopped for several days, now its back.
UPDATE: i am now looking for some used leafpacks that some of you may have to replace mine. need to be in pretty good condition. hoping that someone on here has lifted their truck with new packs and no longer needs theirs. there has to be someone!
okay well i bought my tacoma about a month and a half agoa nd all has been well except i seem to have a weird problem while stopping. if i come to a somewhat abrupt stop, not slamming on brakes but not taking a half mile to slow down, after fully stopped i will let off the brake to go and it seems like the rear of the truck settles. like the suspension was under tension. this sounds like axle wrap to me, however this is my 2nd truck so i could be wrong. its an 04 4wd with 60k on the clock. so i got home today and looked under it to see if i could find something obviously casuing this and i looked at the spring packs. they sit almost comepletely flat with no curve at all. should this be this way even with stock leafs? they also have a slight upward bend in them right at the axle. i tried to take pics but its kinda hard to get a picture there.
the other issue im having is that if i go over just a regular bump in the road or a pothole or railroad tracks it seems like something it bouncing and it seems to be something in the front end. it doesnt really effect steering at all but it makes enought sound that i can hear it in the cab, almost as if it were hitting the floor boards. its not constant so i cant put my finger on it. all help is much appreciated. ill have pics up in a few minutes of the leaf packs
