    Ok, here goes. My truck is an '06 DC Prerunner that is obviously out of factory warranty for the TSB. With two people riding in the back seat or a 300 lb. plus load in the bed, I bottom out on the bump stops when I hit a decent bump in the road. Is there an inexpensive fix for this. When I have had issues with other trucks or cars that I've had, I've used air shocks. So far, I haven't found any for my truck. Maybe they aren't out there or I'm not looking in the right places? Help.....

    just a couple comfort items.
    A semi cheap fix would be Timbren or some type of taller softer Bump stops. An add a leaf will also help your problem. A more expensive but still cheap for what you get is a set of Dakar leaf springs. Bumps will help the problem So will a add a leaf and the leafs will solve the problem:D

    Rearched or replaced springs could also do the trick.
