    Noticed today that my taco's stock leafs are pretty saggy. I'm past warranty and I sure as hell don't want to pay the dealership for the TSB.

    I'm looking to get a good pair of aftermarket leafs that don't add much lift.

    Need recommendations for a good leaf set that gives a smooth ride without weight in the back for daily use, but can still handle occasional off-road and hauling and do not squeak.

    I have a DC 4x4 and plan on installing billy HD's with my new leafs.

    Help is appreciated

    I had the same issue and replaced the rears with the Dakars. Made a huge difference and the ride improved alot. They can take tones of weight and flex well.

    Thanks for the response.

    Do they squeak at all?

    All leafs are going to get squeaky eventually, doesnt really matter who made them- theres some mods you can do to fix it though
