    I'm confused. Is it the 3-leaf or 4-leaf that was recalled? Other people say its the 3-leaf version.

    Two / 2 leafs plus an overload leaf = 3 leafs, these were recalled.
    Toyota re-design the rear leafsprings to have three / 3 leafsprings plus an overload leaf = 4 leafs.

    Hope that answers your questions

    Correct. While, low mile 2 leaf + overload will last if they have low miles on them, they will eventually sag.

    I have a set of original 4x4 springs in my garage and they have ridiculously low miles on them.

    Thanks,

    Anyone know if the 2015 4x4 leafs will also fit on a 2014 truck?

    What is the total drop you think you got with the 4x4 leafs? about 2" ? If you don't mind.. what did they charged you from the Toyota dealership for the 4x4 springs?

    Yes 2015 leafs will fit 2014 Tacoma.

    Also from what I *understand* the 4x4 springs will drop the rear of an X-runner approx 1/2”? But I don’t know for sure!
    If you pull the springs from your 2014 let me know because I might be interested in them.

    Would be nice to get a clarification on the amount of drop for 4x4 springs. 1/2" drop doesn't make it worth-it for me.

    Anyone go the route of de-arching there existing springs to get the desired drop? Wondering if that would be a better option.

    You will get between 1.5" to 2" drop by replace the stock springs with the 4x4 springs.

    I actually did this as well. It was alright for a little while but then the springs started to sag quite a bit and they wouldn't take any weight at all before they bottomed out. My guess is that when they re-arched them it affected the properties of the steel in the leafs and weakened them. I wouldn't do this. Just spend the money on the 4x4 leafs (it was actually about $50 more for me to re-arch) and I don't think you will be disappointed.

    You guys know where i can get 3" drop leaf springs (composite/steel)?
    Was thinking flex-form however im unsure. I remember this one guy here posting that he was probably the only one running the 3" leaf spring drop but sourced it from xii
    Any help is appreciated guys

    You can get the 1.75 or 2.25 (whatever the current design is) mono composite drop leafs directly from Flex-Form

    If you look at the other tacoma forum they sell OEM 4x4 leafs and just check for your area if they are buying...not sure why you spawn another thread, but I'm sure you can get a low mileage 4x4 leafs there.

    I think the original design was for 2.25" but I think that run had cracking problems....way way way back when....and an additional 1/2" was added for strength....leaving them with 1.75". I THINK
