    Hello evereyone, I guess I am the new guy, I have an 02 tacoma with 0-3" Downey coil over lift in front, 2.5" skyjacker springs in back, the trans is automatic, my problem is when i am driving and come to a stop it feels like the rear end rotates forward causing the gear selector in the cab and trans I assume to jump when I let off the brake to start driving again, has anyone experienced this or something similar?

    Thank you for your response, That's what I was thinking, of course everytime I take it to the local performance off-road shop they can never get the truck to do it on test drive so they think I am full of crap! Any links you can send me for aftermarket ladder bars? or what brand do you recommend? and as far as helper springs do you mean add-a-leaf type?

    Has anyone used the first set of traction bars in the first link? Really curious how easily they install and improvement if any.
