    I just bought a 1998 Tacoma SR5 with 220k miles. It has Size: 31X10.50R15 tires on it currently.

    It has a broken leaf spring on one side in the rear. The other side is an aftermarket Dorman leaf spring.

    Here's my dilemma...

    I could replace the one side and have a near stock SR5 for $150.

    https://www.amazon.com/Dorman-929-401-Spring-Toyota-Tacoma/dp/B003SJJRMC

    OR I can lift the whole truck with leaf springs included for $449? Is that right? What am I missing?

    Will raising it a few inches give me a better ride on and off road? Will the tires still be big enough or would it look weird?

    thanks... Im a total newb
