    Hi guys my 2005 Tacoma's rear end is sagging, my local dealership told me that there is a TSB #3055 on it. MY question is do I have to change the front as well? Thanks!

    Not sure if TSB's apply to Canadian trucks... If you're asking about replacing the front coilover suspension then the answer is no. I do not believe there is an issue with them sagging.

    It doesnt change the front suspension, however, if the dealer is willing to do it and give you a new setup, why wouldnt you?

    Search friend, there is a gazillion and a half posts about the rear spring tsb. And no it doesn't have anything to do with the fronts.

    The TSB only applies if you still have warranty

    I was talking to a guy who works at a local 4x4 shop here and he said that if he was gonna do it then he'll upgrade the front and the back! He said that if the front is left stock and the rear upgraded then the truck would look funny and it wouldn't be safe! What do you guys think about that?

    The TSB springs will only raise the rear 1" , you can only get the TSB done if you still have warranty

    As for being unsafe , all 2007 - present Canadian 6 lug Tacomas come stock with the 4 leaf " TSB " pack

    I was thinking of replacing my rear leaf springs and shocks with OME. The OME's should raise the back by 2"-2.5" right? Is that a good choice or what do you think? Will it look funny then? Thanks!

    .
    The rear leafs on these truck suck, period, if the dealer is willing to do it, then by all means get it done, OME's are a good choice too, but there are other routes you can take, look into add a leafs, airbags and what is very popular here is the Bilstein 5100 shocks. I have two inch add a leafs, billie 5100 shocks and Firestone riderite airbags, i put 5100's in the front adjusted to 1.75 inches and with the airbags i can make the truck perfectly level. Pump these terms into the search function and you will find lots a lots of info on this.

    The OME Dakar leaf pack will raise the rear 2 3/4 - 3 " on a DC .

    In that case you probably should lift the front as well .

    If you aren't going to lift the front , look at getting an AAL or just the TSB springs you apparently qualify for , then add an AAL .
