    i did a search but could not find an answer. i have an 01 dc prerunner trd offroad, my question..... is the rear leaf pack the same as a non trd prerunner? im guessing its not? if its different does the leaf pack have more leafs or a larger overload leaf or what? it rides pretty stiff, if they are different then whats the easiest way to get a better ride? could i take the overload leaf out and add an aal? sorry for all the questions and i appreciate any help....

    the reason i thought they were different was because i had a 96 ext cab 4x4 and it road much better than my 01 dc....they have the same shocks(kyb gr2) but i noticed my dc has a huge overload leaf......the 96 did not have that.....

    i would think taking the overload and putting aal in would make it even stiffer

    Leaf packs are the same. Leaf packs from 95.5-97 are shorter than those from 98-04.

    ok, since they are the same whats the easiest way to get it to ride softer, better in the rear....ive tried different shocks...twin tube, mono tube and its still to stiff for me compared to my 96 yota....

    The TRD suspension has progressive rate coil springs up front, which ride a bit stiffer than the non-TRD flavor. The only way to soften the rear a bit is to get new custom made leaf packs such as those from Deaver or Alcan.

    thanks, would the ome 880 comfort coil springs provide a better ride than the factory toyota non trd offroad springs? would the ome 880's provide stock ride height on my dc?
