    Hey Guy's & Girls of the Tacoma world , I recently broke a leaf spring on my 2007 TRD Sport and even though I purchased the ECP coverage I was told To Bad So Sad by Toyota, not enough customers have complained about this problem so there is no CAMPAIGN as of yet.The dealership was nice enough and offered to fix the problem (recomended both sides be replaced) for $1500 Plus tax or send it out and have it fixed for $700 Plus TAX. I said NO and had the Truck repaired somewhere else for $510 all in, Dealership $0.00

    Please if you find out your springs are broken or cracked please call and
    COMPLAIN !! Note: This Truck has never even come close to either Bed load or Tow limits, driven like a wagon.
    Please look at link below, it's your Safety and your families Safety

    My Truck (car) came with a 3 leafs and a short little helper .
    The shop I went to, told me they had repaired enough Tacoma's
    lately that they stock parts for this vehicle.

    P.S. With the added springs, Now 4 plus helper the truck rides better than new
    and rides higher at the rear.

    Used guard rail to make adjustments to my rear bumper & tail light in pa. snow. Put new rear tires on same day!!!! LESSON LEARNED THE HARD WAY
    I was told by spring shop that springs break more from being unloaded and hitting that pot hole or speed bump. Whatever you hit. Its the real quick up & down that breaks it? Toyota's factory leaf springs SUCK. Always did always will until they acknowledge they have a PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!
