Is It OK For Super Springs SumoSprings to Touch Frame of 2005 Toyota Tacoma when Truck is Unloaded  


Is it ok if the spring touches the frame when the truck has no weight on it?


Expert Reply:

Typically, you do want a bit of space between the spring and the truck frame when the truck is unloaded. However, if your Super Springs SumoSpings # SSR-610-40 touch the frame of your 2005 Toyota Tacoma when it is unloaded it will be okay. The only thing you may notice is a bit stiffer of a ride since the springs will engage more quickly once the truck is loaded.

From the install photos taken when we installed these springs on a 2007 Tacoma, it appears that truck had very little to no space between the spring and the frame. The photo in the installation instructions for these springs on the Tundra/Tacoma show a very small amount of space. The lack of space on your truck may indicate that your suspension is slightly worn and your truck sits just a bit shorter than it did originally.
