    Hi. I just found this forum and it has been a big help so far, but I have some questions.

    My 05 Tacoma is sitting low in the rear and has been for a while. I haul 400-600 lbs everyday(its a company truck) and it is out of warranty(130,000 miles). I just found out about the TSB, but they wont cover it anymore. How much are the spring packs if bought outright?Is it worth putting in the tsb springs or just put an AAL instead?

    Lastly, i do almost all highway driving with it. are the bilstein HD's adequate with the AAL? or are the 5100's better? or does anybody have any other ideas?

    Thanks Alot!

    Jim S.

    Just get an AAL...The spring packs are like 1700 (parts and labor).

    Are you trying to lift your truck or just keep it level?? The 5100's will probably be a nicer ride and will give you the chance to level it out with the back.
