    Ok, I have a spring broken leaf spring on the driver side. I have read the thread about the notorious leaf spring sag of the Tacoma's. So now I am thinking about just going with some aftermarket leaf springs and getting a small lift out of it. I would not mind getting a 2-3" lift on the back not to mention the ability to haul more in the bed.

    Does anyone know of a good connection for some lift springs?

    Wow, I didn't realize they were that much.

    Toytec is running a suspension sale this month, i believe.

    Check http://www.4x4connection.com, although they might be a bit more expensive. I'm not sure, but that's where I've been buying all of my ARB stuff (they have more than ARB though too).

    yeah i'm really impressed with them i've had them had them almost a year, i've loaded the back up hard (i'm a carpenter) and they didn't sag, they flex well when i've gone wheeling. so yeah over all i think they are the best for the money.

    Would you switch out your shocks at the same time, just wondering because I'm thinking about doing front and rear and haven't quite figured this out. Would 5100's work in the rear with OME suggestions being made here or is something else suggested with the moderate lift suggested? Don't mean to jack the thread, just thinking about a similar job myself...

    a set of 5100's would work fine. i have the wheelers 5 pack rears, with 5100's, and the ride is great.

    yeah i have the 5100 billys all the way around with the hell creek leaf spring and i'm very happy with them. plus i think the whole setup ended up costing me like a total of $700
