which is a better leaf set?

wheelers:
OME 2.75" Lift Leaf Spring Set: 375.00/pr THESE OME DAKAR SPRINGS PART #'s CS047 REQUIRE BUSHING KIT SHOWN BELOW. OTHER PARTS THAT ARE RECOMMENDED WITH THESE IS OUR LONGER U-BOLT SET, FK29 DRIVELINE CARRIER BEARING DROP KIT AND OME REAR SHOCKS SHOWN BELOW:

OR

Toyteclifts.com:
OME leaf spring 2005-2010 Tacoma

Price per Unit (EACH): $199.99
Number EACHs in packaging:1
Number EACHs in box:1
CS047R
****PRICED PER SPRING****ORDER QUANTITY OF 2 PER VEHICLE

2 1/2" lift complete rear springs priced each with bushings. Also requires new U bolts not included
OME Dakar leaf springs feature:
  • Draw Tapered & Diamond Cut Leaves: Ensure the load is progressively distributed over a larger surface area, reducing the high stresses that develop at leaf ends. This provides increased ride quality and protection against leaf breakage, significantly increasing the spring life.
  • Bolt Clamps & Liners: The leaf clamps are bolted to allow installation of anti squeak nylon liners.
  • Fully Scragged & Load Tested: Scragging ensures the spring takes a permanent 'set' which reduces the risk of sagging. Load testing ensures the spring meets the required specification.
  • Graphite Coating: To further reduce the friction between the spring leaves & friction pads.
  • Military Wrap: Designed to provide added safety.
  • Anti Friction Pads: Regreasable nylon interleaf liners reduce friction at the leaf tips where the load is the greatest.
  • Flat Axle Seat Area: Allows a positive, safe axle mount reducing spring stress & increasing spring life.
  • Shot Peening: The tension side of all leaves is shot peened to reduce spring stress. This process can double the life of a spring.
  • Two-stage Leaf Pack: Featured on most rear springs for optimum comfort. When unladen the vehicle is largely riding on the primary stage, with the secondary stage providing additional support when a heavy load is added.
Please note: Most Emu Dakar leaf springs have all the listed features, but where design or a physical limitation exists one or more of these features may not be incorporated. Please check with your OME licensed fitter for further information.

I didn't notice them being the same, I thought the wheelers were progressive and the toytec ones looks different then what I imagined the wheelers set to look like. Sorry if you guys wanna delete that's fine haha
I heard the sll pros are hit or miss: some people like them some don't. I can't justify spending 600 for dakars or alcans, don't have the 200 bucks. I might look into local shops. I'm looking for both lift and flex.
