Hello, my name is Albert, and this is my first post. I have been lurking and reading a while, and just trying to absorb all the great information available on the site, it is unbelievable. I have owned Toyota's for year's and never new this type of help was available.
My problem is with a new Toyota Tacoma we have purchased for a work truck. It is a base 2007 Tacoma access cab,4 WD , 4 cyl. and a 5 speed, pretty basic, but a great truck that is getting over 21 MPG fully loaded around town. I put 100 to 200 miles a day on the truck, and am trying to improve the ride as the rear suspension is bottoming out due to the weight it carries. The truck is fitted with an A.R.E. contractor cap,with a couple big fiberglass ladders and all my trapping equipment. I would guess at least 600 pounds or more total. What would be the best way to improve the rear suspension to handle this ? A local spring company suggested Add a Leafs, in the 2-3 inch range at a cost of 350.00 installed and out the door. I am not too concerned about the price, I just want to make sure the problem is resolved properly. Would a spring pack be a better option ? This truck does get used off road, but spends most of it's life on pavement. Thank you for any help you can offer, I thought it would be much better to ask here than just writing a check and throwing money at it hoping it works. Albert
