    I've noticed that my fathers 09 quad cab TRD off-road stays flatter and handles better around corners than my 08 reg cab prerunner. I want to improve my trucks on road handling since it spends most of its time cruising and towing BUT I don't want to alter the ride height. I've been lurking around this site for a few hours and it seems most of the suspension mods are focused on lifting and dropping. Does anyone make stiffer springs for my truck that are the stock height? How about rear sway bars since my truck seems to lack one?

    Also, can anyone tell me if my 08 model is affected by the leaf spring TSB or if they fixed the problem by then?

    Thanks for the info, gentelmen. I think I figured the rest out myself. Hellwig EZ-990's will stiffen up the rear and will fix the heavy load problem along with the overpriced sway bar (I used to get those things for my Mustangs for like a 100 bucks or so). And a set of 2" id Swayaway coilovers on the front set at the stock ride height will give my 650lb springs compared to the stock 445lb. And the best part...no change in ride height! :D
