    Hey guys,

    So I am trying to do some research before I purchase anything but I am looking to buy new leaf springs for my 2003 Toyota Tacoma 4x4. I have looked around the web and found brands like skyjacker, which are quite expensive... $450 for a pair?!

    I searched the forums and have found that Dorman 929-401 springs are reasonably priced, more like $125 a spring, yet they are for 1998-2000 tacomas. Will the Dorman 929-401 springs even fit my 2003 tacoma?

    If anyone else has any suggestions in brands or types of leaf springs that are reasonably priced let me know!!!

    I am running stock everything, so just normal leaf springs would be good. The stock toyota ones are for lack of a better word, dead. Still rides well and all that but bumps and the many potholes in Pennsylvania are getting to be a little rough. I also have the typical tacoma lean..

    Thanks for your help,

    Tom

    I was looking at alcan a few months back. Well still am actually. They will build packs for around 600ish and I hear the quality is really good. It's pricey but I hear something that will last.

    there's a place i think its called general spring or something like that, that has pretty good prices for leaf springs. I've never bought them but was thinkin about givin them a shot when i get around to doin mine.
