    Ok non TSB stock leafs with 2nd broke to shit :eek::eek: I'm building a set of bolt on 2nd gen springs that'll give approx 3" lift & increased load rate & since you have 5125's in rear no need to change
    price will be $350.00 or $475.00 installed the other option is a spring kit which is usually $250.00 but since 1 leaf is broken I'd have to hit you with another $25 needing an extra leaf on each side...

    Thank you for the quick reply. I gotta start saving some cash, cause i cant afford that right now. Those are pretty good prices and i was figuring somewhere around there, unless there's any other options its gonna be a while. I'll be in touch

    yes
    That is pretty cool. :thumbsup:

    Doug, you should consider doing the same, or at least putting a fat OMD on top with a paint marker. It's the perfect finish to the job.

    Holy shit Doug..

    I'm a convert! Ride is awesome, but - it was a mofo to get everything lined up just right again. Those new bushings on the driver end of things tend to be a pain in the ass to get into the spring hangers.

    Haven't had a chance to test flex yet, going to get my extended brake lines on tomorrow/weld bump stops/trim u-bolts...

    Had a few beers to reward myself tonight..

    If I'm looking for 2-2.5 inches of lift, would you suggest keeping the 2 main Toyota springs and adding 2 more or keeping just the main spring and adding 3?

    Keeping it simple, you can add just 2 to existing leaf pack, keep in mind that the amount of lift you get is relative to the amount of ARC the donor springs are, generally 2 nicely ARC'd donor springs yield 2.5"-3" of lift

    & this is without the overload spring
