    My rear end seems to bottom out driving out of a drive way- i do have a shell on my truck but i think it could be the shocks. Have any of you had to remove and replace front struts / shocks? Im going on 85000 miles and just purchased some BFG A/Ts. WOW- what a difference!! Thanks

    you are way outta warranty now, but there is a tsb that replaces the rear 3 leaf spring pack with a heavier duty 4 leaf pack. new shocks will help a bit....go with billy 5100's front and rear, but you really should look into getting an aal(add a leaf) for the rear springs. with that, you shouldnt have any more bottoming out problems, plus aal's arent too expensive either.

    thanks again for being on it AGAIN! i'll look into both suggestions. i think the TSB was taken care of but i'll confirm. I was planning on installing the B5100s but also came across brand new front struts and rear shocks off of a 09 tacoma with 30 miles on them for free. Thanks again brah
