    Hey guys,
    Just got a '15 4runner sr5. Hope to soon match my racecar scheme. I will say I felt some sagging in the rear on the highway . What do you guys have any recommendations on to avoid this issue? Also any thoughts or ideas on trying to push a little more power out of this V6?

    3" lift, 33” BFG muds, Aircraft Landing lights, Tractor muffler... The usual stuff.
    How many miles does it have on it?

    Oh wow, that's weird to be sagging then... Does it always sag? Or just on the highway?

    Is it loaded down with anything? I would recommend some tougher rear coils

    The 4runner is empty. Just me driving it. The car is only 1900lbs and trailer about 1500 lbs. I'm well under the rating. And brand you would recommend? Model type? I'm not going to be doing any off-roading so I don't want to have a stiff ride. I have 2 young kids.

    Oh I didn't know you were towing. That explains the sagging. You are below the rating, but the rating is for the rig to be able to handle it. It can handle that weight, just not sit correctly. For example, I have a 120 pound RTT on top of mine right now and am sagging.

    If you are looking for a stinger coil, try toytec. I'm not sure if they have anything without a lift though. If not, I have coils that are coming off of my rig next week that give 1" of lift in the rear and ride nice. They would probably level you out pretty well. I'd give you a good price. I'm only removing them for more lift.

    Hard to show since I have a 2" lift up front. Here it is with a RTT on.

    You could always bag the rear springs. Go to summit racing and they have a set of air bag that slip into your coils and act as a leveler. Cheapest way and i've seen them installed in minutes on you tube. Type in rear coil air bags. Look it up.

    Did you up grade your rear springs with the lift? Old man emu has good spring.

    Up grading you shocks and springs will help with extra weight, on an off road performance. old man emu or toytech have affordable kits. but the sky is the limit with lifts.. lol but it worth it to do these upgrades, rather then faller of parts out on the trail.

    It's a brake controller. This way I could use my electric brakes on my trailer and not rely on using the 4Runners brake power to stop it all.

    That's awesome. I got a 2wd. I need a bigger car for the family and that had a towing package. What better than a 4Runner!
