    So my truck has 498 miles on it now and wouldn't you know when you have a truck you have friends :)

    I went to Home Depot last night with my brother to get supplies for his fence building project..

    In the bed


    • 21 bags of Quickcrete (50 pounds each) = 1050 pounds
    • 2 8 foot 4x4's ?? 30 pounds??
    • 3 25 pound bags of pea gravel = 75 pound
    • Misc screws and junk = 10 pounds
    Total Weight = 1165

    Truck payload rating fro a 4x4 short bed DC = 1295
    no one is in the truck in these pictures and nothing else in the truck

    Should I have been sagging like this???

    here is the little yellow sticker on my 2010

    [​IMG]


    Only 4 pounds...the part numbers on my springs are the same as the ones that say are the bad ones in the TSB???

    Were you on the bump stops? Keep in mind, with you in the truck, you were over the rating......

    the picture was taken with no one in the truck, but I think what you were saying is that ONCE we got into the truck we were over the rating correct?

    with the bed loaded the way it shows in the picture I then climbed on the rear bumper and jumped up and down and I still had room to play..I just would have thought it would not have sagged as much...

    why Timbrens? This isn't going to lift the vehicle is it? I am planning a rear AAL and front 5100's,

    I just wasn't sure if the sag was normal, I rarely haul anything..

    Timbrens are nice for loads like that because they're going to give you a smoother ride on the road when you're nearly bottomed out like you were. The truck doesn't crash/smack-down as hard as it would on the stock bump stops which are shaped like little rock hard pyramids. The Timbrens are shaped similarly to truck airbags installed in the rear end and are more durable AND more cushy.

    No they will not lift the vehicle.

    An AAL will help with heavy loads too. But I'm sure you know that those WILL lift the rear end.

    Sag is "normal" because you have 1,000 lbs. of shit in the back. Put that much on your back and your bound to sag some too! If this were an F-250 would it have sagged this much? No, probably not, but that's a full size pickup DESIGNED to carry 1,000+ lbs. regularly.

    LOL, I regularly carry 70+ pounds on my back and yes I do sag....

    yeah while I was loading there was a F250 SuperDuty loading up to, he didn't even blink with all the crap he had in the back...

    Thanks for the advice folks, this is my first PU in 14 years, always had jeeps so never hauled anything and don't know what normal sag is and isn't

    Peace

    The yellow sticker on my 2010 Access Cab has the same numbers as yours.
    How does Toyota determine how much of a reduction in carrying capacity a Tacoma has?
    I haven't had my truck loaded up yet, to see how much it sags.

    Certainly not! I've had as much as 1,500 lbs in the bed of my 2-wheel drive TRD Sport and did ride quite as low. Close, but not quite. I think some springs are just weaker than others. It's a defect, in my opionion. Adding overload or those leaf spring add-on helpers does help, but heck if Toyota is at fault, I don't care how old your Taco is, they should make good on the Free replacement they are doing for folks.
