    This is the first ive heard of this^^^ i would make damn sure its meant for a 4wd truck. I have lowered a 4 wd tundra at work. Customer bought a kit that turned the rear to spring under using the same springs. It was kind of fun to install, because i always lift trucks... handled like a damn camry, it was cool.

    The tundra leaf springs are practically flat as they are now. I am not sure how a new leaf spring would be flatter to lower unless its inverted.
    Like Jace said swapping to spring under would be the best way to lower.

    What about after flipping the axle, adding the Toytec shackles with 1"-1.5" lift to get back closer to level?

    So I've been told removing a leaf will drop the end end to level it out. Anyone have an opinion on this ? I realize payload/towing will be effected, what will happen to handling ?
