    Ok I know I know use the search button but this is more fun !!!
    So I put my TRD exhaust on today and once I was all done and lower it to the ground and crawled underneath to make sure there were no clearance issues I noticed that my leaf packs look kinda nasty and they almost look like there arching in the opposite way right in the center, so im thinking its time for a new pack, here lies the prob. which leaf pack to go with, my truck is used mostly for a pleasure ride, not much wheeling, so some comfort would still be nice, but I do haul a 6x12 enclosed trailer total weight loaded is around 3700lbs I have the toytec shackles on already but def. noticed the rear looks to be sagging lately, so what are your guys thoughts on what I should go with
    thank you much

    Is this normal for people with shackles? Seems like mine is losing its arch also. I'm on CB's+3.

    Thinking when it's time to just ditch the CB's and use a full leaf pack to get my rear lift.

    If you have the stock leaf packs, and don't want to break the bank, get the Roadmaster Active Suspension kit. It's like ~$300 and mounts on top of your leaf packs. They're great for your needs, especially if you're not really wheeling the truck, such as daily driving and occasional towing. Because they're an "active" suspension, you also don't need to do anything between loading down the back like you would with having to air up air bags.

    If I can I would like to get rid of the shackles if I can just get a heavier set of leafs to give me the lift I'm looking for I would like a slight rake to it right now the way the leafs are sagging it's almost higher in the front
    I have the full toytec 3-1 ultimate lift on it now

    Toyota springs are fairly flat from the factory.

    Thanks Brian
    I think that's the route I will, go the OME's
    Couldn't I use my toytec shackles and just set them on the lowest setting ?

    @mtntop has alcans on his 1st gen they look really good. @LOTSOFTOYS I think has alcans too. Both said they ride nice and smooth but can handle a lot. My leaves look like they are curved backwards from the axle back. Like the shackles just push the rear half of the spring down.

    Do you have them on yours? Or another truck? I was looking at the roadmaster before I got the shackles, sway bar and bags. But I couldn't find anyone else that had any experience with them.

    Do you mind telling us where you found the RAS @ $300. Cheapest I found it was around $4-450. Nice kit though. Definitely looking into this. Thanks

    Per coach's recommendation I have some drakars and +3shackles to go on my truck when I get a free afternoon. Replacing the lift block was my goal.
