The Rear Leaf Springs Broke Under Normal Operation Conditions ! I Called The toyota Dealer And Said They Are Aware Of The Problem And Have A “fix” For $600.00! I Called 10 Junkyards Looking For Used Springs And They All Just Laughed And Said” They Sell Them As Fast As They Get Them” Because It Is Such A Common Failure. I Now Ask Everyone I See Driving One Of These Trucks If Thiers Has Broke And About 80% Of Them Say Yes! If The Truck Had Been Loaded Or If I Had Been Going Fast When It Broke It Would Have Been A Heck Of A Wreack! How Could So Many Trucks Be Doing This And toyota Not Be Made To Make It Good? Thanks, Greg. *ak

1. Truck Primarily Used As A Passenger Vehicle. Only Infrequent Use Truly As A Truck. 2. While Carrying A Moderate Load On The Highway, A Grating Noise Was Heard From The Driver’s Side Spring. The Lower Long Leaf (2 Leaf + Helper) Had Broken Off Forward Of The Differential And Dislodged Itself From The Assembly Such That It Was Rubbing Against Gas Tank Seam. Upon Further Investigation, I Discovered That The Passenger Side Rear Leaf Spring Was Also Broken But Only Slightly Dislodged. Both Had Been Broken For An Undetermined Amount Of Time Since The Broken Ends Were Well Rusted. 3. Was Approx. 200 Miles From Home And Fortunately Had A Hammer To Free The Broken Spring From The Tank. Stopped Every 30 Miles To Check It. The Problem Is Not Yet Corrected And Still Installed On Vehicle. This Could Have Potentially Caused A Fire If The Tank Was Ruptured. toyota Was Called To See If There Were Any Recalls On This Issue. They Took My Vin Number And Said That There Was A Recall But My Particular Vin Was Not Part Of The Recall. In Trying To Obtain Used Parts From Auto Recyclers, More Than One Has Stated That They Have Had Quite A Few Inquiries For Used Springs For tacomas. And After Searching The Nhtsa Database, I Believe That The Problem Is More Widespread Than Is Reported To toyota Or The Nhtsa.
