    Build thread in sig...
    i'd say skip it. from the looks of the picture, there are only 3 leafs in it. so with one being the overload, i bet the 2 regular leafs aren't going to have any sort of load capacity compared to your toyota springs with the extra aal.

    EDIT: i have also heard that fabtec springs can be noisy because they don't have the anti-friction pad the toytecs have.

    You can get better- You can get worse. I wouldn't install it on my truck- but that's a personal type of thing.

    The price is probably the determining factor really. If they are free- Sure they are a great deal!!
