    I have some for a 1st Gen, not sure if they fit a 2nd Gen. They are 3 leaf with an overload leaf. Rated at 700 lb over. Give about 3" of Lift. Basically brand new. Only on my truck for about 3 weeks.

    PM me if interested.

    You probably already know this, but adding/changing springs will not change the load capacity of your truck. Your brakes, engine, transmission, cooling, etc. dictate how much you can haul. That being said, if your truck is out of warranty and you cannot get the rear spring TSB, an add a leaf (AAL) is a great option. The Toytec 1.5" combined with a set of Bilsteins up front or an aftermarket set of coil-overs will make a nice difference, but still won't add to your load capacity.:)

    Thanx guys, I apreciate your advice. I don't want to do any hardcore towing, just load her up occasionally with firewood or lumber or toyys.so tsb would be awesome but regulars are good too.and what's this aal I hear bout?
    Can someone fill me in on it?

    completely stock

    it will add some load carrying comfort... with more than 500lbs. my truck bounces off the bumpstops over speed bumps...

    IMO toyota way over estimated the load the truck can carry in the back... if i put 70% of the load capacity im bottomed out...so if adding a beefier leaf makes it so you dont bottom out so bad, in effect your increasing load capacity...;)
