    Hey all,
    A friend of mine was tellin me that 90's ford explorer leaf springs would fit in a 90's taco with no fab work. Is there any truth in this? Or am I missinformed?

    I just figured an explorer is a little heavier than my taco so the springs would pop it up an inch or two. Plus mine are shot to hell. And yea I'd rather have some chevy gear under there but I love my yota.
