    So I need leaf springs extremely bad and cannot find any 95-97 springs. I read somewhere a while ago that you can run the 89-94 toyota pick up leafs on the 95-97 Tacomas. Does anyone know anymore about this??

    Are you lifted at all? Maybe now would be a good time to swap in some Chevy leafs.

    No mounts have to be moved but you get GOBS of flex lol. A friend of mine is a fabricator out of his house. He can move them if you decide to go that route.

    Wheelers is your cheapest option
    I was running their 5 pack their aal and 1" shackles and got just ove 4" of lift and amazing flex

    You can also get some custom Alcans made too but they will be quite expensive.

    If you can afford to find a good shop that knows what they are doing to relocate. Then you have the choice of dakars all pro and more

    I'll probably have them off by next week. 2 weeks at the latest. They are only the stock springs, no lift

    I weld for a living and I already bought new shackle mounts and spring hangers. Its gonna be a fairly easy project and it will be well worth it for the ride and flex
