    I need help with all you guys and gals out there..I am looking for a good set of rear springs for my 09 taco. would like to get 3" of lift and a little more weight carrying capacity than stock. now i know most people like their truck to be level but i like the rear to be higher than the front, so when it,s loaded it sits level... any help would be great. thanks :mad::help:

    Toyota's are awesome
    For your needs, I would go custom personally.
    You want more than the Dakar pack lifts really, plus the additional weight capacity.

    When you order a custom pack you get to pick exactly those two numbers.
    I ordered a custom pack from Alcans springs, which is who cuts our AAL for us, which is actually my second leaf pack from them. Extremely happy!

    I currently have the All-pro 3" but the load capacity sucks. The OP wanted more load capacity than stock so a custom set of Deaver/Alcan might be a better choice.

    What don't you like about yours?

    I had mine rebuilt since I bought them after someone had them for a year. The minute I installed them the bushing started squeeking. I"m pretty sure it's the bushing but maybe it's the leafs. :confused:

    All Pros are great. But if you want to load and haul stuff they probably arent for you. Although I have had 900 pounds of concrete in my bed. Did just fine. Just get Timbren bumpstops.

    I have contacted alcan for a price on a custom set. I don,t mind the rough ride,but i hate it when i drive my grizzly in the back and it drops down 4 inches. when i make a decision on the leafs i,ll let you all know what i end up with...Its always good to ask before you buy especially when most of you have all ready done the mods..Thanks guys

    Dont get OME's. Too soft. 5100's or if you got money adjustable Fox's are nice and a good application for you.
