I have a pair of add-a-leafs I just took out of my Toy. I am not sure what they are worth though.

Ya, I just phoned and they are $80 plus all kinds of taxes! Not too keen on a super hard ride(in my truck anyway!) but not sure what else to do to get that end up.

What about going to a new set of leafs? Do a Chevy swap or something.

Even better, spend the money and go 3/5 eliptical or something.

3/5 eliptical?????

3/4 E did not really cost me anything extra when I did my S10 spring swap, just a little more time and some low cost material.

I ment 3/4. Damn fat finger and the buttons are so close together.

Wait...I have skinny fingers and my keys are well spaced. Damn, I just plain screwed up.

There was a thread a while ago with a good description (and picture) of what a 3/4 eliptical suspension is...can't seem to find it though.

funny thing, when I was first told up buggy leafs, I had no idea what that was. I got this link, I didn't read anything, scrolled right to the bottom, looked at the picture, understood exactly what it was and came up with my own plan for it. Then I read the the description, and it was pretty much the same as what I was going to do :p :rolleyes:
