    Last year I installed new Alcan leaf packs on my Dbl cab & would like to get rid of my old stock leafs. They are still in pretty good shape & have about 65,000 miles on them. I put them up on Craigslist & have gotten a few calls. Now, a few guys have asked if they will fit an extra cab. I have no idea if they do. Any of you guys know if they will fit other trucks like extra cabs or standard cabs? Also, what years will they fit? I'm thinking that they will fit only 2001 to 2004 trucks, but I'm not really sure?:confused: And, is there a difference in rear springs on the TRD vs the non TRD? Any help would be great!

    Thanks guys!


    ***By the way, if there is anyone out here in the San Jose Cal area that would like these, I'm selling them for $100.00 & I'm also throwing in a free Fabtech add a leaf kit mod#FT 205 with it.

    IDK, Maybe give the guys at Alcan a call. They probably know off the top of their heads, and are usually really helpful...

    Yes, they will fit the Xtra cab, but only 98-04. Leaf springs from 95.5-97 will be shorter.

    I have about a 2" lift from these springs. These were custom ordered, so when you call them, you have to tell them what you carry in the bed, (weight wise), what kind of wheeling you do, what kind of lift you want, ect. Their really good at what they do as far as working with you to get what you need. Actually, they had the specs in their computer for the Dbl cab already, so they had most of the measurements from my truck. All he needed was the weight I have in the bed, (in my case, the shell). Also, it will take them 3 to 4 weeks to make. The cost was $620.00 shipped. I'm really happy with the results. :D

    Thanks, man. Yeah, I've been all over the Alcan site and heard great stuff abtou them.

    OK, so you specified 2 in lift...

    So one more quesiton. From the pic in your gallery it is a little hard to tell. It looks like the have about 6 leafs in there, but no overload leaf? Did they include all the extra (and long) leafs make up capacity for the lack of overload leaf? Perhaps you wanted more flex...

    Man, I am having trouble reading posts completely before I respond. So I just saw the image of them sitting on the floor, obviously without overload. Duh.
    Thanks again.

    I think I have an 8 pack on these. I did want more flex though for some nice droop when wheeling.
    Now, if you want a overload leaf in there, I'm sure they could work that out for ya. They will pretty much make them any way you want.
