Went to install hitch, found a broken leaf...
Went to put a hitch on my new (used) Taco and found trouble with the rear leafs, And that opens a big ole can a worms....
I did a search and found nothing about this so hear goes..
I just got a bone stock 1995 Taco extra cab V-6 5 speed that was built in 06-95 so I guess it is a mid year. It still has dinky tires on it but I would like to get a little more agresive for light wheeling, maybe some pizza cutter 31" tires. I still need to tow with it and daily drive and MPG will always be a concern.
I noticed the drivers side leaf spring is snapped and was grinding into the shock wich is now junk, but it looked tired anyway so no loss there.
So now my concerns are should I just find stock replacements or try to find somthing better? I do not want to do an expensive lift on the front end but would be open to newer better shocks and springs that will bring it up a bit on all four corners. I counted on needing new springs and shocks someday but not this week (Just payed for it and now insurance etc..).
So, the question is what should I do, get new stockers for that truck or find taller ones from another Toy (And if so what year/style?) And then, if it gets taller in the rear by 2" or so what should I get for the front to level it out?
Sorry to stink of newb, I just sold my EB last year and never had to ask questions about that thing. But this Taco is totally new to me!
Sold my Tacoma....my NPR got better MPG with 2 tons in the bed!!!
