    I have a Tacoma 4x4 access cab that is registered in Canada. I have just been reading about the TSB on the replacement rear springs and shocks x 4. I originally learnt about this from a friend, who in turn got his information from this forum. Acting upon this knowledge, I went to the local Toyota Dealer and told them my truck was bottoming out and that there was a TSB issued (I had the USA version, but not the Canadian). They were aware of the situation, so just before my 3 year warranty expired (ten days to go), I had the rear springs and 4 x shocks replaced. A much better ride. The only question I have is that as the rear suspension is now higher than the front, should I put lifters/spacers on the front?
    A great forum and glad I found it.

    welcome to tw!! you can use spacers to level your front end.....but you can also use bilstein 5100 shocks also!! they may be better than spacers!

    Welcome to TacomaWorld!

    Some people like the look of having the back a bit higher than the front. Depending on what your personal preferences are and how often you have the bed loaded just leaving the front alone is a great option. :D


    Yes I have a reputation for being frugal. :p

    just traded in my 07 silverado for the 08 double cab tacoma TRD, so far no regrets and i hope it stay that way. i was disappointed with the new silverado the turning on it sucked. this thing turns a whole lot tighter. other than that is there anything i need to know about these tacomas. i have heard the tailgate are weak is there any truth to it. i have a 07 sportman atv i want to try and load in the bed. any input helps.
    thanks,
    shawn

    welcome to tw!! as far as the weak tailgates.....yeah, its true. i think its mostly due to people loading motorcycles.....probably not so much atv's. just be careful when you load your atv, but if the tailgate does bend....toyota will fix it per tsb!
