I have a 2003 tacoma srunner that has kinda been sitting ( won't pass emissions) and fell it to some jeep jl axles for free so we are gonna do a axle swap with leaf spring suspension. I originally was gonna run chevy 63 leafs but my neighbor has chevy 52s I can have for free. What are the thoughts on the 52s vs 63s for this conversion?

For the rear axle, 63" Chevy springs work really good for most applications. For the front, typically springs similar to Rancho 44044 length which is 47" work good. I'm not sure if 52" springs would be too long, but they might be. Depends on how and where you plan to mount the hangers in conjunction with your axle placement. Steering box position is obviously comes into play here. Do some homework and take some measurements to figure out your geometry.

I assume you will be planning to get a new trans and transfer to swap for 4x4. That means new crossmember which should probably be semi-custom to deal with the front driveshaft.

Lots of good info here-
