Rear Spring Harsh Ride
 
So I brought my 2011 SR5 Taco in to Toyota yesterday for a "Harsh" ride and this is what they said they were going to do


rear assembly spring (both sides)
alignment
front Toe-in
Front Camber
Front Caster

Not being huge into the mechanical aspect of things (go easy I am learning slowly) will this affect the height of my truck at all? If so how much and how much to add new shocks and the works to give myself a 3'' lift? Any help would be appreciated I am still a green horn and just started doing minor mods to Miranda (my trucks name)

What kind of Harsh ride how did the truck feel?

waterwolf603 08-25-2011 07:34 AM

it felt weighed down and not leterally "bottoming" out but that kind of feeling.... Essentially I want to lift it and am wondering if any of what the dealership is going to do will aid that process

waterwolf603 08-25-2011 07:37 AM

being i admittedly dont know what

front Toe-in's
Front Camber's
Front Caster's

was just curious and I assume when they say springs they are talking about leaf springs?

Did they say if they were going to replace the springs? From what you said it dont sound like that is what there going to do.

waterwolf603 08-25-2011 07:45 AM

ya I believe they said upgrade the springs or replace I cannot remember which one... There definately was no mention of shocks or anything tho. Thats why I am curious to see if it will affect the height of the truck or not

If they are doing alignment then they may be swapping base shocks to yellow bilsteins...if OP doesn't already have them.

On the 11 they will not replace the shocks. Shocks are fine. And if they do replace the springs you may get 1.5 or 2 inch of lift.

The Camber and toe-in stuff have to do with the tilt/angle of the front wheels and is adjusted during alignment. They're most likely addressing the TSB that toyota issued for the Tacomas and will replace the rear leaf springs with a 4 pack. Since they're replacing the springs, they'll have to do the alignment as well.

Spring replacement is 3 leaf pack out back for a 4 leaf pack............which should have been coming on these trucks since 2005.

Gotcha thank you all I appreciate the help, trying to learn as much as I can. This is my 2nd Truck but the 1st one I am actually in to and plan to mod the shit out of

waterwolf603 08-25-2011 08:02 AM

any recommendations on shocks or a 3'' lift kit that will not break the bank, my truck is a daily driver aswell fyi

884's with 5100s set at 0 with a top spacer

waterwolf603 08-25-2011 08:07 AM

how much do you think that would run me and any recommendations on where to go to get them?
