Best Toyota Tacoma Suspension Upgrades

Toyota has a solid reputation for manufacturing reliable, hard-working pickups, and the Tacoma is no exception. Toyota began producing a line of Tacoma compact trucks in 1995 and eventually transitioned to mid-size models. Many older Tacomas are still on the road and providing dependable service to their owners.

Leaf Spring Upgrades for the Toyota Tacoma




Leaf springs are the most basic vehicle spring type and are easy to install. A typical leaf spring assembly consists of thin, multiple leaves for excellent flexibility and superior load control. Leaf springs are a good choice if you're making a Toyota Tacoma rear suspension upgrade, as they can accommodate higher backend loads. General Spring is your one-stop online source for Tacoma leaf springs for a variety of models in years ranging from 1995-2014.

Toyota Tacoma SuperSprings

SuperSprings are ideal for improving the ride quality and handling of heavily loaded trucks. Consider SuperSprings if you use your Tacoma to haul heavy, bulky items or boats or trailers. You can install them by attaching them to the top of your existing leaf springs — the process takes less than an hour. SuperSprings are maintenance-free, which can save time and reduce costs if you own a business with a fleet of Tacomas. General Spring carries SuperSprings suspension kits for several Tacoma versions from 1995-2010.

Roadmaster Suspensions for a Tacoma

A Roadmaster Active Suspension (RAS) offers an alternative to a standard Tacoma leaf spring upgrade. RAS is a simple retrofit for a Tacoma equipped with rear leaf springs with up to a 1 1/2 ton capacity. It transforms a basic passive leaf spring system into a mechanically active suspension that absorbs and dissipates load source energy. The result is substantially improved traction, handling and control. We offer RAS solutions for various Tacoma models from 1995-2013.

SuperSprings are progressive in nature in that they work on an as-needed basis. The installed springs are under nominal tension even when the vehicle is unloaded. This is so there is no rattle or noise and the patented rollers will activate automatically.

As a vehicle with rear leaf springs comes under load the factory springs react as they are designed to. The center of the springs move vertically causing the overall leaves to flex and flatten out. This movement in the factory spring activates the SuperSpring through the rollers at the end of each leaf. Because the SuperSpring rollers aSupersprings Shacklere under tension, a movement in the factory spring causes them to move, seeking their new point of least resistance. This simple roller principal allows the SuperSprings to activate and deactivate automatically, free of any manual adjustment.

The SuperSprings are length specific to fit varying sized leaf springs. In addition the different lengths typically are manufactured in light, medium and heavy duty strengths. The sole adjustment on the SuperSprings is found in the roller shackles at the end of each leaf. The typical shackle has two bolt holes, as shown in the diagram below though some single hole and three holed shackles are used. The most common installation involves positioning all four rollers in the lower (furthest from the eye of the SuperSpring / closest to the ground) bolt holes. This ensures the least amount of preload tension on the SuperSprings and keeps the vehicle closest to its original factory ride conditions. Upper bolt holes may be used if additional lift is desired in the vehicle; if clearance from obstructions is required or if the installation is on an older vehicle with some fatigue in the springs.

SuperSprings enhance load carrying capacity, handling and towing. Do not load any vehicle beyond the manufacturers gross vehicle weight rating.
