Today on our 2007 Toyota Tacoma, we'll be looking at our best suspension enhancement options. We have four suspension enhancement options here today. These are all for the rear on our Toyota Tacoma. Now, our Firestone air bag kit is part number F2407, and these will support up to 3,200 pounds of weight. This set of springs right here is the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System Springs, part number TTORTUN4L. Now, these will support up to 3,000 pounds of additional weight. They are designed for vehicles that have three leaf springs on each side in the rear suspension.
They will not work with PreRunner models. This model here is the Timbren Suspension Enhancement, part number TTORTUN4. These will provide up to 6,000 pounds of support, and these will work with our PreRunner models that have four springs per leaf spring on each side. Next, we have the SumoSprings, part number SSR-610-40. These will support up to 1,000 pounds of weight. Over to my left here, we have our easier options to install. These are your more basic options.
They are install once and forget about it option. There's no maintenance required. They just replace your factory bump stop on your truck, and you don't have to worry about doing any maintenance to them ever. Over to my right, we have a Firestone air bag option here. inaudible 00:01:37 you could see, it's a more complicated install. Everything that you see in this cart here is something that you would have to install in order for these to work.
These do require a little bit of maintenance in regards that you do have to monitor the air pressure in your air bags occasionally to make sure that they have the minimum pressure in them. If your load in your bed varies or you tow different weights in a trailer and you would need something more adjustable, then you're looking more along the lines of an air bag solution, like the Firestone kit here. Only down side you really have here is that it is a more complicated installation, but it does give you the flexibility of running a varying amount of air pressure in your air bags to help adjust for the amount of load that you have in the bed of your truck or a higher tongue weight trailer that you may be towing. If you have an uneven load in the bed of your truck and you need to level it out, you can do that with these compared to our bump stop replacement solutions that we have here as well. Now, if you look underneath the Tacoma that we have in here today, you can see one of our Timbren solutions that we have in place. As you can see, it just replaces the factory bump stop. Really simple and quick and easy installation there; there's really nothing to it.
They do not affect your ride at all when you have no weight in the vehicle. The only time when they come into play is when you have that extra weight in the bed of your truck or you're hooked up to a trailer with a heavy tongue weight. That will help prevent your truck from sagging in the back and get rid of that awkward rake. It'll make much easier towing, better braking, and cause less tire wear on your vehicle. Now, the air bags are also nice in regards that you could also add a compressor to the system and have controls inside the cab, so you would never even had to get out of the truck to do anything. You can just flip a switch inside the truck, add more air, or flip the switch down, you can take some air out. That's nice over the bump stop replacement solutions because there is no adjustment. It just is what it is. If you're looking for a solution that gives you ultimate flexibility, if you're always having a changing load in the bed of your truck or you're towing a trailer or you're towing several different trailers with varying tongue weights, the air bag's obviously the way to go. Now, if you're towing just one trailer with a heavy tongue weight or you always have a constant load in the bed of your truck, such as a heavy toolbox, then the bump stops would probably be the way to go if you don't need that flexibility that the air bag solution offers you. That completes our look at the best suspension enhancement options for the Toyota Tacoma.
