    So I have a really quick question (I have been searching for a few days now). I was wondering how many rear leaf springs a 2008 tacoma TRD off-road has. I need to know because I have no idea what option to get on this lift.

    I would go look myself, but the truck is in storage and I am not in the United States. Trying to get his ordered before I come back so I don't have to wait (I hate waiting:mad: ) the truck is 100% stock in that aspect. Thanks in advanced I appreciate it.

    Hmm mine is a access so I wonder if that has a factor compared to a double cab, or maybe I am over thinking this. As you can tell I'm pretty new to this stuff :eek:

    They should be the same.

    The only way you would have the TSB leafs, is if you or any previous owners took the truck down and asked for it while under warranty (or payed for it).

    Awesome thanks! Now I can continue my journey of spending money. Well since I have your attention and haven't pushed the buy button yet 5160 rear shocks worth the $190?

    I don't have any experience with those shocks.

    I purchased some AALs for my 2002 3.4L Taco TRD and when going to install them I discovered that the U Bolts that attach the rear diff to the spring pack are so rusted out that when trying to remove them I actually broke an impact socket. This was even after releasing a 1/4 can of rust penetrant.

    So I called the dealership and asked about how much it would be to replace all four with new and the balance turned out to be 150.00. I was wondering if any of you knew of any other cheaper suppliers I could go through to avoid the dealership markup?

    I am an engineer and I am fully aware that dealership markup can be %150 over actual MSRP.

    Any leads for online sources would be a great help. Thanks Ya'll!
