I am going to do a slight performance lift on my 97 Tacoma 4WD for the desert and trails. It has the stock coilovers and springs, right now, but I am going to get the Icon Coilovers and want to get Deaver springs for the rear. Deaver only has an add-a-leaf 1.5" lift available for my truck, but they have a full leaf replacement for the '98-'04 which is 1.5" lift, also. What's the difference between the '95.5-'97 and the '98-'04 springs and will the '98-'04 springs work on my truck with modification (I'm sure it will) and if so, is it worth the extra cost of the full leafs over the add-a-leafs and the effort of the modification to make the springs fit or should I just stick with the add-a-leafs? I think my OEM springs might need replacing, anyway.

Build your own leafs???
I did mine for $60 including the donor leaf packs and new center pins!
They came off a 2000 Dakota but you can use any off a fullsize truck. Just take your stock pack apart and ditch the overload and slap in the 2 new leafs or however many you want, i added 2 to mine and then my stock 3 leafs minus the overload so i now have a 5 pack and it rides a million times better!! Plus i got my 3" lift back out of it!
And some flex shots with new leafs
They flex really well and im more than happy especially for saving the $400 over an aftermarket pack!
