What's the Zuk mod? Does it allow you use springs that aren't nearly as long a Chevy springs? My opinion on chevy springs is that they work well for as inexpensive as you can get them, a traction bar is mandatory to prevent all the wheel hop and the taller the tire the better you will be since the front hanger seems to catch alot of things.

I still say Tacoma springs. Not as long as Cheby's they don't add to or take away lift and flex a lot better than what ya got. Oh and I got some here at my place.

Zuk mod is some 600lbs coils (like long coilover coils/small diameter) on the top of the leaf spring plate and of coarse a spring mount.

Wouldn't the zuk coils stiffen up the spring rate? I'm with James. I have wore out Taco springs on mine with leaves added.
