    Have a 2003 2.4 cyl. I need new shocks and new front coils and ucas ate rusted out. Any suggestions on good quality aftermarket suspension and is it possible for a slight lift like a prerunner so I don't have to step up out of truck? Daily driver only offroad when hunting.

    From my research, good quality complete packages with little lift as an option, you can't go wrong with Old Man Emu setups. http://www.rocky-road.com/tacoma.html
    kind of hard to find an easy to navigate site with the options but this one is pretty good

    I'm planning on setting up a Expo-lite 5-lug.

    Don't want any life just concerned about sagging once I put on my shell and start loading the bed with gear.

    I'm waiting to hear from the dealer regarding getting an upgrade to a 4 leaf spring set under the TSB but the TSB doesn't actually cover 2013 models (that I can find).

    Suggestions for beefing up the rear without a lift (if TSB doesn't come through)?

    Bump.

    Any opinions?

    I found these:

    Super Springs

    Claim to be a simple install without lifting. I'm no engineer or mechanic but the concept sounds feasible. Anyone with any experience using these?
