    So I am a new member but not new to Toy's. Had my 93 till 2006 and then got an 05.

    My problem right now is that I got a tanneau cover and keep all my tools in the bed and the rear is sagging a little. Not huge but at night my lights are shining up in the trees and I can't see the friggin road. I have looked at helper springs like Hellwig, Superspring and air bags but can't tell which is better for the buck. I only need it to keep the truck level. I estimate with the cover that the bed has around 500 lbs at all times. Any info is greatly appreciated

    Welcome to TacomaWorld.

    When my last truck's rearend got too low I went to Palmer Spring in Providence RI. They specialize in commercial truck suspensions but did a fantastic job designing and replacing the springs and shocks on my "little truck". I ended up with a stock hight, better load capacity and I swear the truck handled and rode better than new. I doubt you're near Mass or RI but there's probably a company that does similiar work near you.

    Not sure if you're still under warranty, but if you are, you can get the rear spring TSB for it. You may even want to consider buying new 4 leaf springs from Toyota. I'm not sure of the cost though.
