    Did you take notice to how the leaf springs looked before you hauled some stuff? The 1st gen leaf springs have a 'reversed' arch appearance to them from the factory.

    Post some pictures.... or take a trip to your local dealer and look at some of the stock 95-04 tacomas and see if your springs are similar looking.

    And if you want to lift your truck - you're far better off buying a completely new set of springs.
