    :D Does anyone want to have another group buy on Wheelers offroad 5- leaf leafspring kit?
    DTRD

    The Deadline is 3/31/11

    These are built by Alcan specifically for Wheeler's. Here is the product:
    http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/tacoleafs.htm

    Note: Wheelers 4-leaf packs are "NOT" included

    95-2000 5-leaf replacement pack, 1.5 lift.


    2001-2004 5-leaf replacement pack, 1.5 lift.

    5-pack lift heights are approximate and depend on your cab type and whether you have a cap, box, hitch, or other constant/regular load in the back. Call Dan at Wheeler's to discuss what suits your needs and use.


    5-packs are usually $459. 10% off = $413, 15% off = $390

    Note that no sales tax is charged.

    Shipping charge is additional and will vary by your location. YotaDan will need your zip code to estimate shipping. Tacomaman6 had these shipped all the way to South Carolina, and said it wasn’t that bad, considering they are heavy.



    Instructions:
    1. Copy the list and paste it into a new reply.
    2. Add your user name and zip code.
    3. I will give the list to Dan.
    4. After we get 10 orders you can call Dan at Wheeler’s Offroad: 541.474.2879. Tell him you are on the list; he will confirm this with the list I give him. You must be on the list.
    5. Place your order with Dan. He can work out the shipping estimate for you.
    6. Once Dan has the required number of orders lined up with credit card information, he will process them with the discount. 10% for 10 orders, 15% for 15 orders or more.
    A number of us have discussed this group buy and these springs for a couple weeks. You can check out those threads and pics here:
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st-gen-tacomas/81221-my-leaf-springs-shot.html

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st-gen-tacomas/81547-who-has-wheelers-offroad-1st-gen-replacement-leafs.html

    If you have an Xtra Cab, Double Cab, or a cap, or a hitch, or some combination of these, you may wish to consider the 5-leaf. But you’ll need to do your homework and make your own decision.

    Let’s go, people!



    $390 for the 5-leaf packs
    We will have to verify this with Yotadan of Wheelers first.

    Alcan 8 Leaf Progressive packs 95-04 Tacomas:
    10 orders, sets go for $539.00
    15 orders, sets go for $509.00

    Alcan 8 Leaf Progressive packs 05+ Tacomas:
    10 orders, sets go for $559.00
    15 orders, sets go for $519.00

    For the "Wheeler's Replacement Packs"

    The Alcan 8 leaf packs have a bit different discount.

    This only applies to Alcan made Spring Packs. Not Deaver, or OME.

    I have toytecs ultimate lift and bought OME C19 leaf springs for a 3" lift but rides way too stiff. I am lowering the coils a bit and adding the Wheelers 5 leaf set for a smoother ride. Might go with a 1" to 2" body lift for more tire clearance.
    This sucks that the older Tacos can only go 2-2.5" with a suspension lift without beating the truck apart.

    So is it just for the Wheelsers 5 leaf Alcans, or the Alcan 8 leaf pack as well? Which would you reccomend for an 01 DC running Kings in front at 2.5" and a topper on the back?

    I may be in pending reply...

    Good luck getting this together OP. We (mostely scocar) just barely got it together in time.

    The springs are awesome though and at that price, a great deal.

    adhumston, I have the toytec coils with 2.5 and these from what I heard will be just right to level my truck. I hear that the 8- leaf pack is actually a softer ride "but" will not carry extra load. Hopefully others will answer as well.

    I was wondering when someone would get another GB going for these! It seemed like as soon as the last one closed there were tons of TW'ers looking for new leaf packs....good luck!

    OP...maybe clarify for the people if this is 1st gen only or will include the 2nd gens as well and a cutoff date.

    If anyone has questions about the 1st gen 5-packs, shoot me a PM...I'd be happy to help out! Had mine on since last spring and still happy with them.
