    This is a heavy duty rear leaf spring set for owners wanting a stouter rear spring set for their Tacoma. Great for trucks hauling extra weight, utility and expedition applications. They have 4 leafs plus an overload leaf and feature diamond cut leaf ends with anti-friction pads, bolt style pack clamps and a provision for the factory e-brake cable clamp. They are supplied with a performance polyurethane bushing set and zinc coated u-bolts. They fit Standard, Xtra and Double Cab chassis, 4cyl and V6. Depending on chassis and load, your truck will sit higher than stock. The 3rd leaf down can be removed for reduced ride height and a softer spring rate if desired. These springs are left and right specific and are made from 60mm width material. These leaf packs work well with a performance gas charged shock such as Bilstein 5100's (listed below). You will notice an improvement in the stability and ride height of your Tacoma under load as well as enhanced control of axle wrap.

    Couple pics for those of you who are curious:

    How about to Canada?

    Would this be considered a direct (heavier duty) replacement for 2nd gen Tacoma TSB (4 leaf) springs?

    Will this give me more or less lift in the rear rather then a stock leaf pack with TSB with over 100K and an 1 and a quarter inch AAL? if so how much?

    So are these just about neutral to stock height or do they give any lift over the 3 leaf (2/1) springs?

    Any insight on how much lift these give? Able to retain stock height shocks? I'm debating on adding the 3 leaf AAL to my TSB leaf pack or just replacing the leaf pack with these. About a years time and 15k miles the TSB pack is now sitting on the overloads, they were great when new but with the extra weight of my cap have gone soft again.

    These are a Heavy Duty Replacement pack meant for vehicles with a constant load. When unloaded they will provide 2.25-2.5" of lift.

    So with a load would I be looking at stock TSB leaf spring height you think? I have a leer 100xq topper on the truck at all times, which the stock off-road 3 leaf pack gave out carrying and now my TSB 4 leaf pack is resting on overloads as well. Thanks for the help.

    Just depends on how much weight. They are still beefier than the TSB pack. 4 supporting leafs and the Overload.

    I have run these leafs on a 2.7 L AC with an ARE topper for two years. I got just under 2" of lift with them. Great product, as I have used them very hard and they have no squeakes or creaks.

    I run these with about 400lbs regularly. It sets about stock height but handles and rides way better. I think I am about 21.5" center of hub to flare.
