What causes the rear end to sag on a 1987 Toyota 4Runner?

the rear springs have lost their ability to hold the weight. you

can replace them with after market ones or a spring shop . or you

could ad a 2inch block under the spring and still keep the factory

shocks you can pick these up at your local parts store for about


The springs on the 1st gen 4runners are identical to the ones on

the pickup truck, so when Toyota put the fiberglass shell over the

back the springs couldn't support it as well. Read the wikipedia

entry on 1st gen 4runners it will tell you all about it.
