    I currently have a 3-leaf set up.. Ives heard a lot about the TSB, but unsure if i should get it..

    The reason i ask is that for the short term, i was thinking of getting 5100's and/or Toytec pkg to level things out while i save money for spindles, SC, etc..

    I often carry loads in the back, camping gear, firewood, etc.. and other than a little rear end sag i dont notice much else.. although i will admit my truck tends to swerve easily with gear..

    What do you think guys?

    Or you could get it because it's better than what you have now and it's FREE. Or you could go spend hundreds of dollars on a new leaf pack since you aren't even unhappy enough to know that you do want the TSB. But I'm sure I'm the crazy one.

    Well i was thinking of getting a 5100 set up from either Toytec or DSM, both offer AAL or Leaf Packs.. Does the TSB change ride height? Im currently 22" rear and 20.5" front and no Lean, pretty standard for TRD's from what i read..

    Sure seems to be a lot of mixed feelings and opinions on this TSB. Mine goes in next Tuesday to get it done. I tow a 4500lb boat and after pulling the boat one time I could clearly tell my old FJ towed much better. Service manager as well as one of the mechanics have had it done to their Tacomas and that had noting but good things to say. I guess I'll be the judge next week. I have a TRD so no shocks for me just springs.

    Did you add a AAL for the TSB? Is your ride level? Did you upgrade your front springs or keep the stock ones?

    No AAL, and i used the stock springs. 5100's set at 1.75". My front is about 1/2" lower than the back but im ok with that. I haul crap all the time and I will be putting weight in the back for winter real soon and it should sit perfectly level then. pics in my gallery of the stance.

    Im thinking after much research here, that for now, I am going to put 5100's on all four corners set @ 1.75 in front and get the TSB done in the back.. Seems to be the best way to level out the taco without risking damage.. Let me know what you all think..
