This is the Toy forum... :flipoff2:

Anyway, I still don't see what you are trying to achieve here. I am pretty sure that the 44044's are shorter than stock toy rears, so if you did run that in the back you'd get a shitty shackle angle. And they're designed for the weight of a V8 sittin over 'em, not a Toyota bed :barf: :barf:

Lots of jeepers run 44044's F & R . I think one of the aussies on the board has done it in a Toy.

I think they will probably bend in the rear.

I think 44044s are the worst riding springs I have ever driven in a Toyota. I can only guess that the people who say how great they are have never run a decent spring. I know someone will post a pic of their rig with the opposite corners jacked on rocks saying how awsome they are, but semi truck spings will flex when put in that situation. Back in the day when they were dirt cheap, I can see why people ran them even though they sucked compared to custom springs, but with several companies offering better springs comparably priced I don't see why anyone would run them. If you want to go cheap, use rear springs up front.
