OK, made it to the pick n pull in Newpark today and looked over all the ranger's in the yard for leaf springs but just didn't like the way they looked. dug around somemore and got to the dodge Dakota section and found a pair of 1990 LE V6 long beds and the leafs where perfect. 2.5" wide and a lot thicker than the tacos. The axle is over the leafs so they have a nice arch to them.
35 minutes later and I had them both off. Heavy isn't the word for them. A lot heavier than the tacos.
So I plan on taking the2 smaller leafs and the OL and put them on my pack. The Taco will retain the main and second leaf and the 3rd and OL will get tossed.
Can't wait to see what lift I get and how they will feel.
BTW where can a score a longer center bolt for the leafs?
