1999 - What are good leafs and shocks?

Hello all. I want to replace my leafs soon and wanted some advice on good aftermarket brands. Also want to change out my front struts and rear shocks as well.

Whats a good brand for aftermarket leafs? Someone told me Dorman is a good brand but wanted yall input before I start buying stuff. Also whats a good brand for front struts? Im leaning towards KYB because my buddy has them and he says his ride is great. Should I change the actual spring and strut or just change out the strut?

For the rear, whats a good shock? Im also leaning towards KYB.

Anyone know a particular model number I should look into for Leafs, struts, and shocks? Something that wont hurt my wallet to bad I have 2 kids and a high maintenance wife.

My Taco is a daily driver. No heavy off road use honestly. Just all stock build. Thanks guys!!

Im in the same boat. Need new leaf springs, but don't rock climb or tow heavy stuff so alcan springs or wheelers seem like overkill.
