Check engine light and rear leafs

Hi!

I had a check engine light turn on while I was driving back to Gunnison from Vegas a week and a half ago. I called a friend and he said don't worry about it if the truck is running fine, which it was, so I drove home. I would like to figure out what it's indicating, but I am a poor college student. If anybody in the Gunnison area has the scanner thingy to pull error codes and would like to help me out, I would really appreciate it. My truck is a 96' Taco, 2.7L.

My other question is: does anybody have a stock rear leaf pack laying around that they would be willing to part with for cheap? My back end is sagging bad, and I will be carrying a lot of weight in my bed all summer (moving into my truck when it gets warm to save $$$). I want to build a custom leaf pack that will take the weight and give me my full lift height back (I have a 3 inch shackle lift, but the leafs sag at least 2 inches). A leaf pack with some life left would be nice. While I know I could get my current pack re-arched, the main leaf is so bad it's a little "S" shaped. It seems like it would be a better idea to start with a better leaf pack and add some of my current secondary leafs to stiffen it up. I plan on keeping the overload leaf.

Thanks,
John

The Autozone stores, at least here in the Springs, will read the code for you without charge.

cat, exhaust leak, or O2 sensor... I probably have all three going for me! My cat rattles, I'm sure my exaust manifold is cracked, and the dang truck has 200000+ miles so it's about time for an O2 sensor to go. Well, Gunny is tiny and has a car quest and a napa. I will have to see if the guys at car quest will help me out.

Thanks for the replies!

John
