Replacement Suspension Parts for the Toyota Tacoma
Tacoma has been around since 1995 and has been a reliable workhorse truck for
those owners since it was first introduced in the United States. Because the
Tacoma has been around for so long it often becomes necessary to replace worn
suspension parts as part of a routine maintenance. Keeping your suspension
working properly is crucial to not only having a smooth ride as you go over
bumps and imperfections in the road, but it is also important to maintain the
load capacity of your truck and prevent damage to the chassis.
Finding the Right Product is a Matter of Concern
Tacoma has been around for so long, it’s no surprise that the model design has
changed from time to time, including the fit of the suspension system on the
truck. In fact, the leaf springs alone have changed five times for the Toyota
Tacoma, so it’s important that you get the right leaf springs for your
particular model. The five model year groupings are:
On top of the
model year, the specific model of truck will also dictate what leaf springs you
need. For instance, in the 1995 – 1997 models, there are four types of rear wheel
leaf springs available: the factory default 4 X 4 with 4 leaves, heavy-duty 4 X
4 with 4 leaves, the factory default 4 X 4 with 3 leaves, and the 2-wheel drive
model with 3 leaves. So, as you can see knowing the model of your Toyota Tacoma
is an important factor when choosing proper suspension parts.
Other Suspension Options
Along with the
factory suspension system, there are also many options available for suspension
upgrades on the Toyota Tacoma that can help improve the load carrying capacity.
Some of these options include:
Suspension System. Timbrens are rubber springs that work with your leaf springs
to increase capacity, SuperSprings are additional leaves that fit over your
leaf springs to take up any extra load when your springs reach capacity, and
the Roadmaster Suspension System works with the leaf springs, acting like an
air bag to help improve capacity.
Each of these
upgrades has benefits and drawbacks, so the best idea is to talk to the
professionals at General Spring to find out which option is right for you.
