    Ok... here are some shots of before and after the TSB. I havent seen anyone post a comparison before. This hay bale is somewhere between 1000 and 1200 pounds dry, but it rained for 2 days prior to shit test, so you do the math.

    Unloaded pre-TSB

    The TSB gave me one inch of added clearance...
    This is loaded after the TSB.

    And here is the bump stop WITH the load. Not a lot, but still.... there is room

    You need SuperSprings or Timbren's or something to keep that rear from sagging.

    I have a much bigger animal for doing this kind of work, I was unloading my trailer I thought to myself, 'Self, lets see what the Taco says to a little work' So their I was, it was late afternoon. I had a trailer loaded with hay, an 87 chevy 4x4 with 2 bales in the bed, and a Taco, just sitting their being lazy. This was only done to illustrate the full functionality of the new springs. I would imagine the poor thing would fall over if I tried to drive it anywhere.
