    Alright...I realize there have probably been post about this already, but either i couldn't find them, or I am lazy.
    I have an 07 Double Cab Off Road Packaged Tacoma. I have a 3" Spacer Lift with blocks in the rear and I have already had the stock springs replaced under warranty due to negative arch.(yes they covered them under warranty with the blocks)
    Now I have the same problem as before. The springs are starting to show negative arch and if I put anything in the back (even an old 32" TV) when I hit a small bump the rear hits the bump stops! (totally annoying)
    I now have decided that I need a set of aftermarket springs (3"), can anyone please direct me to a company that offers a good set of springs that will alleiviate my problem and give me the 3" that I need, and still perform off road.
    Thanks in advance for any helpfull info!

    Got my springs on FINALLY! (OME 7 leafs with 2.75" lift) ARB lost the PO (supposedly) and had to wait like another 3 weeks. (Major BS, but oh well)

    Installation was a breeze even by myself it took about 2-1/2 hrs. ( that includes having to cut off one of my u-bolts and going to the parts store for new one)

    Rides great and I think I actually got about 3/4"-1" more lift in the rear over the blocks.

    Highly recommend. Got them from Tarheel 4x4 for about 460ish including the new bushing kit.

    Thanks for all the advise.
