Re: My guide to proper Leaf Spring setup

Iím curious on where to start with a new leaf setup.

I have a 2003 Tacoma and I like the ride height. But the leaf springs sit inverted all the time and therefore itís quite uncomfortable over rough terrain.  Which it sees a ton of.  Lots of droop but hardly any up travel since the leafs are already sitting in the up position.  I have oem leafs in the back


I want to keep this ride height. But want new leafs that will function correctly. 



Where do I start?   I was thinking Probably just get leafs, and see if I need to change up the front mount to keep it low and get new shackles and everything?  If I have to french the front into the frame and move the rear shackle mount thatís fine, I can do whatever is necessary.
