Hi, Doug, and hello All, (first post)!
Well, after about five years of searching, I finally found my dream Taco, then discovered that it has the flat springs everyone here is familiar with. No worries, as I've read this entire post, and I'm ready and willing to tackle this mod. But, I figured I'd post some pictures of my springs and get your opinion, OMD, because the springs seem to be on life support, and they're probably a good case-study for everyone to determine whether to pull the plug, or revive 'em. This mod is definitely my preference, but if they can't be saved, I'm thinking Dakars or maybe something along this route: http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/toyot...-swap-faq.html
By the way, the first three pics are driver's side and the last two are passenger; and that block is a 2.5" body lift, which is awful, but necessary to allow for the 285 tires.
Thanks, everyone, and thank you, Doug, for a kickass thread! -Nick
