Questions on suspension for 2001 Tacoma!

I got a 2001 DC 4x4 with 152,xxx miles.

Here is the deal, it has King coil over on the front, Right side is leaking, stock shocks on the back, leaf springs are starting to frown. So the plan is to put new leaf springs on the back, drive for about a 1000 miles to let them settle then measure for new shocks. To rebuild the Kings it is about $115 each, but I can get a complete set of Bilisteins front and back for about $350 from DSMS. The question is it worth rebuilding the Kings? Not really trying to lift the truck.

It will be totally worth it to rebuild the kings.

They will perform and ride much better then bilsteins.
