better ride
Has a nice fit to it and an even better ride. It totally smooths out the ride, especially while towing. really enjoying it. Took me a little longer to install, no biggie though.

My OEM springs have sagged over the years. This option is a GREAT alternative.

what a great difference
What a great help for the stock Toyota suspension. I haul a lot of heavy product (firewood, dirt, driveway stone,fencing etc.) These springs made me wonder why I havn't had them before. Ride and handling are very acceptable. Rear end sag is virtually gone. Truck doesn't wander as it did without these springs and a heavy load on. I wish I had put them on my last truck as I probably wouldn't have ruined the stock springs. (costly )

Excellent add-on
A bit more difficult to install because my leaf springs were much more weakened than I thought. After adjusting a couple of times, the ride is not too stiff and the handling is much better than expected.
