    I think that I received the wrong springs.

    Just by looking at Monkeyproof's old leaf packs it does look like you have the wrong ones. His are AP4505T's not AP4500T's like yours say. Uh oh! :ohsnap:

    Ya the all-pro website says 4505T-AP-3EX-PR for the 05+ tacos (expedition leafs).
    Also it says 4500T-AP-3EX-PR for first gens (expedition leafs).

    Thats whis I tought. I just woke up and checked their web site an saw that. Thanks everyone.

    Additonal...

    Just got off the phone with Allpro. They don't have the correct springs. I was told it would be a month. John is looking into what he can do to correct the problem.

    Thanks again for everyones input.

    IF you added a 3" block it would work.

    Hmmmmm im gonna look into this.

    My springs are shot and I really cant afford a custom set of alcans ($600+) to match my lift. I wouldnt have a problem running a block since I dont wheel m truck.

    Sucks to hear about the mix-up bro, I bet you will check part numbers for a long time after this, lol. I'd done the same thing and been like WTF All-Pro.

    MonkeyProof can you post a pic of your truck w/o the trailer?

    I just got these installed on Friday.... I freak'n love them. When I had the old TRD 16" rims and rugged fails, plus the spare KM2 285/75/R16 in the back and the old leafs and sway bar.... the truck road like absolute butter on the road. Even with very little weight in the back... it's stiff (like a truck should be) but absorbs bumps at speed like candy. Couldn't be happier.

    Pic installed from side level (front needs to be cranked up quite a bit, been waiting on settling)
