Alcan or Deaver leaf springs?

Hi all,

i have a 96 tacoma extended cab 4x4 now with 31's.

I am finally about to continue with my sus. upgrades. At this point I have the bilstein's 5100 in the front and 5125's in the back and new ball joints tie rod ends.

I noticed that Deaver has the rear leaf pack that say they are set at stock height and they mention that they are smoothest ride with proper valved shocks? and they cost 420.00
And the Alcan company says that it's about a 2in. lift and they cost 600.oo
I like what Alcan has to say about the the many thin leaf's that help soak up the bumps on the washboard roads this sounds like what I'm looking for. The leaves that I have on now are the emu and they are worn out and frowning and my ride on the dirt roads is jittery and abit jaring. I love my handling on the pavements.

oh yea,, and what coils to get in the front that will match either the Deaver's or Alcan leaf's.
