    I have Toytec 1.5 tsb aal and i noticed its has shifted sideways a little, so it sticks out of my leaf pack a tiny bit. Was wondering what can i use to keep them aligned better. I am going to take apart and try to center better but is there something i can use to make sure they dont shift again

    I would also guess the center pin isnt tight enough. I cranked down on it hard. Down be scared. Its a strong bolt.

    same shit as everyone else
    If you look at my pics i have the same problem. But once it sticks out a little the U-bolts will not allow it to keep sliding out. After a couple months i've just ignored it and now i've noticed A LOT of other trucks with the same problem. I would just forget about it. Make sure though you installed the leaf spring in the proper way. I have heard of people putting them in backwards and having this same problem. Or if it really bugs you put on these clips after to realign it and it should hold better into place

    Make sure your u-bolts are tight.

    If you're that worried about it, you can buy straps to wrap around the leaf pak.

    Like this:
    These don't require a hole in the leaf spring. They get wrapped around the leafs.

    I think you can buy these at any autoparts store.

    THe only problem with these...is they won't allow your leaf springs to 'fan out' while you offroad. These can also shift up/down the pak and over a few years, can rust (you could paint them). I had some of these on my 96.
