    Noob to lifted trucks alert:

    How do I tell if I've already got a leaf added? I really have no idea. My taco was already lifted when I got it. The nose is slightly higher than I'd like compared to the back end.

    I might be interested in a swap if I don't already have a leaf added and it would raise the rear a bit without affecting the ride too much (it's already pretty stiff).

    Stock springs have 3 regular leaves and a think overload spring that's upside down you might have a extended shackle or a small lift block

    heres a crappy phone pic of mine but you have aals those are the ones on the very bottom and it looks like yours have a really harsh bend to them, that is probably contributing to your stiff ride.. but im guessing all AALs make your rear end really stiff since they put so much upward presssure on the leaf pack and your missing your overload spring

    So ... I'm supposed to have the upside-down (downward pointing) spring too? Wonder why I don't.

    maybe whoever put on your aal thought that you didnt need it and you dont really since its just for heavy loads but its about 3/4 in thick so that is probably why your ass is a little low than it should be.. or maybe they liked it that way? who knows
