    I’d custom order deavers before that. FWIW I have the old style HD Dakars with only the small overload springs and have been very happy with them the last few years. But I did break the pack down and optimize a few things

    On my taco, I had the OME leaf pack without noise complaint. If it weren't for a screaming deal getting full OME kit, I was about to Frankenstein 2 sets of factory leaf packs into one for some lift and weight handling. Perhaps something to consider.

    cool. If I remember correctly your truck is lifted more than mine, my lift is pretty mild. When your bed is unloaded are you getting any rake or is it pretty level? Also how’s the ride when your bed is empty? Are the springs pretty quiet and don’t make a lot of noise?

    so i have about 35lbs of sound deadening in the cab to mute the exhaust. i really dont have any squeek complaints after a year. i also have 1" blocks. i always have about 100lbs due to my saddle box and a few tools. id say empty it rides firm, but not bad. hey its a yota, not a caddy but it rides nice for a lifted truck. ride is really plush with couple hundred pounds. i was pushing my luck hauling boulders but had probably 20 70lb rocks with my tools and wasnt riding bump stops. if you want light-ish duty these seem nice. with a cap, armour, steel plate bumpers and sliders id reccomend heavier duty if you want/need to haul weight. come for a ride sometime if you want 1st hand data.

    i think they were about a grand too. i would HIGHLY reccomend aftermarket hangers. huge gains to be had there.

    I don't think that's a discount tire problem, more like a Cooper tires problem. If Cooper doesn't make it, you can't have it. I haven't had any issues with discount ordering me a tire they didn't stock, as long as it's available from the manufacturer.
