    2006 TRD DBL CAB SR5
    Hello everyone!

    I've been a long time Toyota owner, and now I've made the switch from an 06 Tacoma SR5 PreRunner. Last August I purchased a 2006 Tundra 4WD TRD SR5 Double Cab with 120k miles, and I couldn't be happier! More room for the Family, and a V8....

    I'm looking to build a comfortable, and capable "Family Adventure" vehicle. Currently the truck sits on an interesting LevelKit. Up front seems to be a rubberish leveling kit of 2", and the rear currently has an overload spring and AAL.... I THINK. One leaf is snapped in half and needs a replacement.

    I'm looking into replacing the suspension front and rear sometime soon. Any suggestions? Mainly for California road trips, occasional Baja surf trips when the kids get a little older, and back country camp-outs.

    Sorry for the novel, and thank you in advance for the help.

    Here are a couple photos of the broken leaf in the pack (literally snapped behind the clip), and the front level spacer. As far as replacing the leaf springs, I've been resding good reviews on Deaver packs. Are there any other brands worth looking into? What is the stock height of a TRD? do they all add lift? The third photo is the driver side leaf pack that seems to be ok.

    You are correct, it looks like you have a single AAL in there that broke so you have a few options. Cheapest to most expensive: Remove those AAL's and return it to stock, get new AAL's, or get a new leaf pack. If you go the new AAL route I would get a progressive 3-leaf pack like the one Wheelers offroad has.

    I do not have the 6112/5160 combo as I bought my truck with Fox 2.5's/2.0 already on it. I have only heard good things about the 6112/5160 combo though.
