    One of the leafs on the left side broke a few months ago. I'm planning on replacing shocks and fixing the leaf spring all with stock components. My question is, should I replace the leaf springs on both sides, or can I just replace one side? New leaf springs are a bit expensive so I'm trying to save some cash, but I don't want the truck to look lopsided or anything.

    Thanks.

    If you can, you should replace both sides. Which spring was it?

    Drivers side, second leaf from the bottom. The cheapest I've found is like 375 per leaf spring, it just seems expensive to me, then again I've never had to buy new leaf springs.

    I think you can get a set of OME/Dakar springs from Wheelers Offroad for that price....
