lighten up buddy. did the missus knock you back last night.

maybe check a few wreckers. might be the cheapest option if you can find a wrecked 1 tonner and swap them over. i've put xr6t leaf springs in the back of my wagon adn they do have an extra leaf (over rider) over std leaf springs. i see tradies in those utes all the time so i think you'd be o.k. some stiffer shocks wouldn't go astray. front should be ok. left alone.
