Whenever the suspension is altered, ride quality will change. Regardless if it’s an effort to support weight or correct stance issues, the vehicle will perform differently as it moves down the road with either kit installed.
Suspension Leveling Kit: With a proper alignment and supportive suspension, leveling kits will have little impact on the way a Tacoma performs. With increased distance from the ground, body roll may increase and steering can suffer just a little. Though, with stiff components and wider tires, the truck should retain most of its drivability.
Load Leveling Kit: Load leveling kits will explore the use of different devices. With added strength in the rear end, the truck will drive much stiffer. Some devices will permanently impact the rear end, while others will raise, or stiffen, the rear end on command.
Spring Helpers: Spring helpers are devices that are permanently mounted to the rear springs of the Tacoma. With these devices installed, the ride quality is indefinitely impacted and you will always feel a stiffer ride quality.
Air Bags: Air bags are devices that can raise or lower the rear of the truck on command. If the suspension is loaded to a squat, the bellows can be filled with compressed air until the rear sits level again. With this type, ride quality will not be impacted if it isn’t needed to be.
