    Hi all. I have a 2001 Tundra 4x2 access cab with one stock spring and one aftermarket spring in the back. The aftermarket spring is about 3 years old and REALLY sagging and so i'm looking to replace them both with a new or take-off set. I'm cost sensitive but let me know what you've got and would like to get rid of. Also, I wouldn't mind a couple inches of "lift" would switching to a 4x4 spring give me that? What's the difference?

    Thanks!

    Where are you located? I have my stock springs off a '14 with around 5k miles on them.

    I'm in the St Paul/Minneapolis MN area. Would a '14 spring set work in an '01? seems like the '14 would be a much bigger heavier truck? Anybody try this upgrade?

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    Yea i think the lengths would be different as well as spring rate.

    That'd be my guess

    I could trade I have the factory springs for 2002 4x2 since I am going to be replacing them at some point how bad/fast do you need them since I will likely be replacing mine next year... I am also pretty sure Pams Auto in St. Cloud has a set of them (salvage) off a 4x4 as i have gotten a few 4x4 parts for my swap off them... neither of these options would give any lift.

    I am located in central MN.

    I'm not real desperate. It's been sagging for years now. But I'd probably like to do it by summer. It needs shocks too so I might tackle all of the suspension at the same time. My other option was to go to LKQ (johns auto) in Blaine and pull my own leafs. When I was following the Jeep Cherokee forum the talked about "Rat Packs" meaning they'd pull leafs from explorers and mix them with jeep leaf packs to get more lift as opposed to an Add A Leaf. Is there such a thing for Gen 1 Tundras? Sequoia leafs?

    Not really without modifying spring mounts to my knowledge. I am no expert on that by any means. I know you can buy add a leaf through spring companies.
