One of the rear leaf springs in my Tacoma has gone s-shaped. In need of some other springs. Apparently 90-95 4wd pickup springs will fit. Anyone have a pair?

swing by U-pull & pay they only charge $24.99 each plus $3.95 core.

just grap any pair of leaf sprigns from that year. then swap them out, you can even combing the two packs to make a lift.. napa sells leaf centering pins for only $1.50 each. and it comes with a nut. so you all set..

if your not confadent doing it all, i'll help.. its really easy, and only takes about 10 min to build a pack.

I can do it as I used to mix spring packs before. Just finding the right springs can be a PITA. Most of the Toyota trucks don't make it to the yards, and the ones that do get picked over quick.

Yeah. I might have to give him a call. I snagged a set of Tacoma springs yesterday used. They are better than what I have. Might give them a try with a different middle leaf to avoid the same issue again.

Still looking for a set of springs from a 90-95 truck. Not at all impressed with the stock Taco springs.

Contact him yesterday. Over $100 per leaf plus apparently a core. Looks like it might be a trip to the U-Pull.

You have got to be kidding. $100 per spring, as in $200 for a set? Used?

I'm looking for a set as well and was just going to run by there and snag a set. I would've expected around $50 for a set. I'm glad I didn't drive all the way down there to laugh in his face when he told me how much.

Yeah, that was the same question I had. As in $200 for a pair? He said that is correct. I can buy brand new stock springs online with free shipping for $110 each. And used springs shipped from other yards out of state are as low as $30 each. The shipping wouldn't be too cheap though.

$200 is retarded. For $200 you can swap in a set of 63" Chevys!

$200 is about 1/2 way to Alcans. $200 is just ridiculous. ;)
