    Was coming back from camping and hit a dip at about 40-50 MPH. The front didn't hit the road at all but I fully compressed my suspention and my rear end almost kicked out. The dip was in the shade of a big oak tree never saw it coming.

    I wonder if anything is damaged. Alignment is perfect and no noises at all.

    If your steering wheel tracks straight and you don't have any vibrations, I'd say you're probably okay.

    It wouldn't hurt to do a once over on the truck anyway. Check your alignment cams to make sure they didn't bend like they're known to in offroad application. Also check your tie rods and look at the rims and sideway of your tires to make sure that everything is 100%. All that probably isn't necessary, but it wouldn't hurt for peace of mind.

    +1 just checked all this and is normal. I was worried because the rear hit the bump stops and I was going pretty fast.

    Well just climb under there and make sure your leafs aren't cracked since it's happened to several people. That probably didn't happen but it's possible I'm sure. It'd be right at the u bolts if one did crack.

    Man I did that shit to my truck last weekend on a fire trail, same thing happened, and here's what Broke:

    Nothing. It's a god damn Truckoma and despite all the swollen vaginas on this particular forum, we have trucks that can still take a pretty good beating.

    Merica, true that honestly this is my first truck never owned one. Always muscle cars for me so fare so good besides it got rear ended only 2 months of owning it. It runs like a banchee though the only thing that pisses me off is the seals on the doors squeak like crazy other then that its solid.

    I was looking at the driver side rear leaf though and it looks like the third leaf is gapped between the 2nd and third theres a space in there. Also, the passanger side doesn't look the same theres not gap?

    I donno man the third leaf on the drive side actually has shifted outward quite a bit and you can see on on the mounting bolt that it has moved a little. These are brand new leafs and you can see the rear of the truck is sagging a little. I scheduled an appointment with Toyota and I'm taking it in I should be able to get warrenty to pay forr it.

    So this is normal to have that gap in between the 2nd and 3rd leaf?
