    Asking this question as I consider AAL or leaf pack for my rear lift.

    I have an '03 with 130K on the clock, haul some things once a month or so, the ATV goes back there. But mainly used as a dog box for the 2 hounds.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks

    It seems to vary. The springs on my last Tacoma were fine at 100K miles.

    Wow, this is an old thread. Odd that it just came up as I ended up just buying the AAL at the time. BUT, last week got a whole new leaf pack with my new frame from Toyota at 171,000 miles!
