    I'm thinking of selling my Firestone air bags.....

    And considering the timbren bump stops with my stock three leaf pack.

    Question is is there anybody out there using them with their stock packs? And how much room is in between the top and bump stop?

    I will get a progressive add a leaf soon, but want to wait untill I get the leaf spring recall takin care of.
    ( getting a progressive aal now would be like beating a dead horse)

    I have had all three and truthfully I think airbags are the best option by far. Out of those choices the airbags give the best ride and you can adjust the air pressure to your specific needs. When I had the Timbrens on it provided about a 1 1/2 inch gap. They worked well with a large load but if I had a medium load they gave a bouncing affect because there was not enough weight to push them down completely. Maybe just look at a new stock replacement through Alcan or any other reputable leaf spring manufacturer.

    Thanks a lot. I love by bags but since I have no lift on the rear(besides what the bags give Me at 15 psi), they tend to bottom out easy and have a harsh rebound.

    I believe my best bet would to be get the aal which would give me more room before bottoming the bags out.? What you think?

    Yesterday I took my daystar cradles out which gave me roughly another inch of up travel. Helped out a little

    Ideally I would like my bags to be inflated more without having like 50 psi in them !image.jpg

    I think the aal is going to be like putting a band aid over a bullet hole. It sounds like you rear leafs are extremely worn... For example I have stock leafs as well and at 15 psi in my bags I tow about 2500 pounds and the truck still has a lot of rack. 50 psi is waaayy too much...

    Haha yeah most defiantly! I was being sarcastic about the 50 psi. I don't want to get new leaf packs untill I know if Toyota is going to replace them under recall.

    I also ended up buying an icon progressive since my Toyota dealer Said that it would be probably December by the time they received the recall leaf packs

    Does the recall replace just the driver's side leaf pack (the one that can chafe the fuel tank) or both packs?
