Troubleshooting Super Spring Adding Too Much Height to Rear of 2012 Toyota Tacoma 4x4  


I installed a set of super springs on my 2012 Tacoma 4x4. WIth NO weight, I am 5 higher on the rear than the front. I will mention though, I do have aprox 300# of addtional weight on the front end, wiith bumper, winch, batt, and tools. And I get the Super Spring re-arched..?? I would like to send a pic if I could Thanks

A picture did come through so I attached it. For your 2012 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 the proper fit is the SuperSprings Custom Suspension Stabilizer and Sway Control Kit # SSA19. If you used the # SSA7 springs you asked from that would most likely be the issue as that is a fit for 1987-2004 Dodge Dakota trucks or 1993-1998 Toyota T100 pickups. Having the improper fit is most likely the issue and they cannot be re-arched to fit. Your other option is to use a jounce style spring instead. For that I recommend the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs - Rear Axle # SSR-610-54.

With the additional weight on the front of your truck I recommend adding the Coil SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs for Coil Spring Suspension - Front Axle # CSS-1094F. Anytime you have that much additional weight the front end will drop slightly due to that additional load and will cause additional wear on your factory suspension.
