    ABout to by 3 Inch leafs used with only a couple thousand miles on them...they are all pro. what should I be looking for in terms of wear and tear?

    Also, if I just get the springs, what else will I need to make it fit? New bushings? New UBolts Etc...?

    If the all pro leafs only have that little mileage it is very unlikely you would see anything from a wear standpoint. If they had higher mileage on them you might notice less than the reported lift they are supposed to give.

    I'm not familiar enough with those leafs to know whether they are side specific. Some brands are.

    Probably should plan getting new front leaf spring bushings. Wheelers Offroad makes a nice replacement kit that includes poly bushings and a replacement pin that is grease-able. Sometimes you have to cut off the old pin to get the old springs off. You can usually re-use the stock rear shackle bushings. Do not reuse the stock u-bolts. Get some new ones.
