    I've noticed my leaf springs look pathetic all of a sudden, and I'm wondering if it's always been like this or mine are shot?

    They seem to be flat with a bend down near the front. Something tells me that's not supposed to happen.

    They should look like a u not an n, right?!

    I've had NO heavy loads in the truck and I'm only at 14,500 KM, 2018 DCSB OR. 20190501_193458.jpeg 20190501_193400.jpeg 20190501_193321.jpeg

    I have the same truck, except mine is long bed. Just shy of 6K miles and my springs don't dip in the front. Oh, my truck is automatic if that matters.

    Thanks for letting me know.

    I'll be taking a peek at the other Tacoma's on the lot when I'm there too. It looks broken, but I want to be sure.

    Looked at two other Tacoma's in the Bass Pro parking lot today... A gen 2 and 3, they both looked as sad as mine... I think @Crwadad is right about the UME Dakars...

    I meant that you should replace them with Dakars. Lol

    Yeah that's what I'm starting to realize. I really don't like the idea of having to replace my suspension after 15,000kms though

    Sorry, I should've been more clear... I've been buried in books and finals and a forty something page business plan... brains getting fried...
    Yes, I was trying to persuade someone into lifting their truck.
    A bilstein 5100 adjustable shock for the front seems to be the most favorable cheap option to get 2.5-3" out of the front... here's my front tho... just 2" of lift.
