    Wouldn't mind seeing 4cyl truck responses. We are lighter, may handle different?

    My truck seems perfect with the stock suspension, however, I've never driven one with the TSB suspension to compare the two. Most of the owners on this forum will suggest you get it done and they may be right.

    I drive a 2.7 AC. Having said that, I had the rear TSB done a mont ago and I can hardly tell the difference as far as the ride is concerned. However, it did increase my rake by around an inch. Get it done! It aint gonna hurt :thumbsup:
    Hope this helps.

    Just get it done if you can. You won't regret it.

    The TSB handles better, supports a scoop of mulch easily... not as 'cushy cushy' as the stock suspension. It's a truck...it's not supposed to ride cushy cushy.

    After settling, about 1" rake and I like it that way.

    I just had my '08 AC Prerunner done.

    Before dropping it off, I stood on the rear bumper and bounced up and down... lots of movement.. the whole truck would roll and sway a little...

    Did the same thing when I got it back and it moves once then it's solid, no bouncing.

    The ride is firmer by just a bit.... it's actually hard to tell the difference or if there is any... but, it must be there.
