    3" lift, full stereo system with 2 amps and sub behind the rear seat.
    I was wondering if anyone hasd doen airbags on the rear of the New tacomas? I ahve an 07 with 3" lift in front and 1.5 blocks in back. It seems like my leafs are sagging and thwe truck no longer sits level. These would also help when I tow my boat, but I am wondering how the ride would be when unloaded.
    Any advice would be helpful,
    Thanks Brandon.

    Welcome to the site!

    Ditch the blocks and replace your leaf springs if you're into towing and ride quality. You might be eligible for the leaf spring TSB so the upgrade could even be free. Search for it and you'll find a bunch of threads on this site.

    If you want more lift, I recommend All Pro. I'm running their hardware and love it.

    Just a note - Airbags (when used as primary suspension) aren't legal in some states.

    Very happy with the All Pro leafs. They ride nice and have amazing flex to them. Far beefier than the stock setup.

    I tested it at Rausch Creek a few weeks back and made it through stuff that I NEVER expected to.

    I'm happy with the stance of the truck too. The front isn't cranked up much but it looks just about right.

    I see those All Pro springs also came with the "invisible shock" option!:D

    Just wait until I get my truck back in another week or so. I'm completely redoing the rear shock mounts with new upper hoops that'll punch through the bed and tie into the rollcage.

    After I converted to rear disc brakes I had interference issues with the shocks in the stock location when the rear axle really articulated. It's a never-ending cycle.
