Sagging rear

Oh boy, my first thread!
When I tow my camp (trailer #3200 dry plus lots of gear) my 09 Sport LB Double Cab 4x4 really sags.

I am looking into the TSB for the issue, and I am confident that if my dealer won't do it now they will in a few months when Toyota updates the TSB for the 09's.

My question is, will the TSB actually solve the problem? I had Timbrens(?) rubber bumpers on my 05 Taco and it really solved the problem but it cost $200+ and I don't want to spend that money if I don't have to, plus it didn't really improve the ride.

How about the helper springs I see? Much cheaper, but do they work?

Or get a load leveling hitch on the camper since that is my only heavy load? Do these really work? Thanks

If you can get the dealer to do the tsb for free then go for it. It will help. You'll probably have to also get a load leveling hitch. You should also put your gear into the rear of the camper to shift some tongue weight away from the taco.
I haul a 7x14 enclosed trailer (1800lbs) loaded with 3 dirt bikes, gear, gas (1000lbs) I don't have the TSB and my sag was pretty bad. I put on the $25 helper springs and it helped out quite a bit. It still sags but not near as much as it did before.
The TSB will help but it is no "fix all". Toytec just came out with a 1" AAL that is supposed to be better then the TSB... I think it's about $80. I'm concidering the AAL myself eventhough I have the TSB, I still bottom out now and then.
