    2 inch spacer in the front, and homemade add a leaf in the rear, billet grille, bull bar
    I have a 99 4x4 with 141,000 miles and the leaf springs feel like jello, and squats horribaly with my 4 wheeler in the back. I thought about helper springs and even looked at new springs. Does anybody eles have, or had this problem??

    My 99 tacoma does the exact same, it only has 90k on it but it sit sags horribly even if you just sit on the tailgate, I know I need knew shocks but i dont think this will help with the rear end sag?? Let me know what you have done to fix yours because im stuck trying to decide between helper springs, aal or a whole new leaf pack?

    Yes, your old stock stuff is crap and worn out, and your trucks wallow around and feel unresponsive, and even a handful to drive on the highway, right? Like my 01 did...You guys may find this to be helpful reading...

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/group-buys/82726-group-buy-april-22-deadline-wheelers-offroad-1st-gen-leaf-replacement.html

    The group buy is already over, but we beat this topic to death and we all shared a lot of really good info and links to leaf replacement stuff...and learned a lot.

    I think we all have our stuff now, and I think most of us have intstalled it. I just finshed mine. It is like a new truck. Firm, solid, no body roll. Very good investment. If you are carrying ATVs a lot, you might want to consider Alcan custom leafpacks, which we also discussed...
