    Does anyone have any pics of what stock leaf springs should look like? Mine are pretty flat. I want to level out the front but I wont do it right away if i need new rear springs too. My truck is an 01 DC with 111,000 miles. I am about to install some 265/75/16 BFG A/ts and I want to make everything work well.

    I dont have any pics. But Tacoma's have very weak springs and they normally will look flat. I just installed my lift recently and mine were flat. Now the have alil arch like they should, a AAL helps alot for the price!

    An aal is a great way to help your truck handle a bit more of a load, and achieve greater flex capability in offroad situations. And if your leafs are shot, your truck will handle so much better with aal and new shocks. Won't be as good as new leaf pack, but for around $50, aal's cant be beat.
