    OK, after long thinking and checking with the boss (wife) i have decided to put new springs on the 60 to bring it back to an original height. PLus with a 3" lift i wouldn't be able to park the truck into the parking garage at work. I know this is a dump way to look at it but down here in TX we have 100 degree days in the summer and climbing into a smoldering truck that has been sitting in the sun all afternoon that is not fun!! If i ever want to put a small 1" lift i can always add shackles.

    So my question is where can i get springs to bring her back to normal? Can i get OEM springs from Toyota or somewhere on the web? What would be my other options?

    thanks,
    Jason

    You CAN get OEM leaf springs from SOR. Probably special order and prohibitively expensive, to me anyway. Something like $500 per spring, new.

    CCOT springs are fine IMHO, but they are a little narrower than OEM. So account for that when you mount them.
