    New to the site. So heres the deal. Bought a used 08 TRD Prerunner DC Taco about a year ago and I've read up on the spring TSB. I go out today to see if I need it. My plan was to get an add a leaf from All Pro because I was pretty sure mine needed it because it rides real bad when loaded, even at only 300lbs. So I look and apparently the previouse owners idea of a leveling kit was to remove a leaf. Yes I have only 2 leaves and the overload spring. My question is since the stealership wants 625 per spring and I have 75K on her and warrenty will not cover, can anyone recomend an aftermarket spring pack with little or no lift. I'm happy with the stance of the truck as it is. Holy run on sentences batman. Thanks

    Thanks. It just looked like the spring clamps had enough room for another leaf. Never seen a truck with that few leaves. Used to 3/4 and 1 tons at work and only had 1/2 tons on my own. Thanks again.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I went out and jacked the body up 1 1/2 in and it looked good. I guess the 75k springs had sagged a little and an add a leaf will be perfect. Thanks again for the help.
