    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!

    Canadian trucks have had 4 leaf packs , or the TSB pack since 2007 .

    I'm suprised he qualifies for a TSB outside of the three year warranty

    hey guys, i don't qualify for the TSB #3055, but my truck is included in that bulletin. I'm not trying to lift it, I just want the back to be higher than the front. I've heard from a local shop that add-a-leaf isn't for long term, so OME would be the way to go. But he also said that he would recommend upgrading the front as well. But I'm not trying to lift the truck. Any suggestions?

    The OME rear leaf pack ( Dakars ) will lift your rear 2 3/4 - 3" . If you are not intending on lifting your truck , this is not the route to take .

    Yeah I'm not trying to lift the truck, All I wanna do is to lift the rear back to stock height or higher. What are my options? Add-A-Leaf?

    I made my own from another tsb pack. Maybe look for a used tsb pack in a wrecker. All depends what you want out of the truck and what you will use it for and how much $ you want to lay out.
    Good Luck :)

    I can't put the AAL in the stock springs cuz they're flat and it's gonna be hard to put them in there. Even if I was able to put the AAL in there, they would flatten again in about 6 months! Any other suggestions?
