    i have one short leaf add a leaf. i also have a rear mounted winch and a tool box right at my tailgate (its one of the draw style). Its too late for me to get the leaf spring tsb (im an idiot and didnt think after my aal i would need it). my rear end is sagging. i was wondering if getting another add a leaf in the long leaf would be my best option? also i have a friend that has a new taco, could he go get the tsb and then let me transfer the leafs to my truck, do they give you back your old leafs?

    If you add another AAL to your leaf pack, the ride will be way to stiff

    best bet is a deaver spring pack. expensie tho

    possibly even a lift shackle

    i dont want to go with a lift shackle because that would mean a shorter shackle and therefor less travel. Idk about how stiff the ride would be because i have about 200 extra pounds at the rear bumper. I was under the impression that the deaver spring pack would not take extra weight and was not good for towing. I tow a lot. thanks.

    no problem if you have the winch and carrier and good fab skills expect it to take about 12 hours to get it in by yourself. btw its too heavy with the bumper hitch winch and mount to lift by yourself. where is the best place to buy the higher lift leaf?

    I would email them to be sure, but assuming that is a Lift/Level kit they probably used a 1.5" AAL in the rear. a 2.5-3" would fix your problem.
