    Does anybody know where the best place is to buy the updated rear leaf springs for my 2005 double cab 4X4? I can't even drive truck any more as it bottoms out constantly and my warranty is up, dealer wants $350.00 each!!!! I cannot believe that they make a truck with such useless leaf springs.

    if you want to stay OEM, your screwed...trdparts4u.com.

    otherwise, aftermarket would most likely be your best bet: all-pro, OME, deaver, alcan, junkyard....?

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.

    why not find a shop that will re-arch your springs? I did this once to a Z71 because I was constantly carrying my slide in camper. So I found a shop to re-arch them to 3/4 ton (required an additional leaf) and later I added 3/4 ton axles to ensure nothing would break. The spring job worked great and only cost me about $200.
