It’s definitely not a secret in the Toyota community that the rear leaf springs installed in the Tacoma pickup truck are prone to cracking, flattening and breaking. In fact, Toyota released a technical service bulletin in 2007 that was intended to address this problem by replacing the springs with new units from the factory. The repair was (and still is) available for free to second gen Tacoma owners still covered by warranty, but if you’re out of warranty then you’ll have to rely on goodwill from your local dealer or foot the bill yourself if you want a factory leaf spring replacement pack. Remember: Broken leaf springs are dangerous because they can lead to unpredictable driving characteristics, especially while towing. If you have a busted leaf spring pack, get it replaced right away.
It should be noted that owners of first generation Tacomas have also had issues with the design of their rear suspension systems, with reports of leaf spring breakage stretching all the way from 1995 to the present day.
