Wanted, Factory overload leaf spring

Anyone have a set of these lying around for a 05+ Taco?

I put on a 3-leaf AAL kit, and now it's sagging... unfortunately, I tossed my overload leaf springs, and wish I had kept 'em.

To be honest, I doubt your going to have much luck... Maybe try in a junk yard? Pretty much anything from an import truck should work, as long as the width and center pin are the right size. Maybe a 4runner? http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/toy...ng-toyota.html

I'm sure that you're right... it's a fat chance, but worth a shot.

Littleton, eh? I'm in Denver.

Not gonna pay $150 for rear leafs. The only reason I need the overload is because I am sagging slightly. I'll go with a 1" block if I fail to find overloads.

Not going to dog these leaf springs... they improved my ride dramatically. I think the problem is that I put 'em on with TSB leafs, and it sounds as though I'm the only one who's ever had a problem.

I don't do any towing, but I did load my bed for a 150-mi trip... maybe that did it?

At any rate, wish I wouldn't have thrown the overloads. Angry noises.
