Mazda 2wd springs is oldschool tech. Its was one of the first junkyard leafpacks that people started swapping into the rear of toys. Its not as common anymore, but they still work very good.

Marlins Made in the USA spring kickass. No junkyard spring will out perform a special built spring with proper spring rates designed for rockcrawling.

But they're big $$$. There's a reason people go with junkyard stuff... usually they've got it laying around or can get it for cheap, so the performance to dollar ratio is better. If you want the best you gotta pay

yup.. Altho if you're ever going to order from the US now is the time with our strong dollar. Especially if you get it shipped to just across the borader to save on shipping and brokerage fees and then go across and pick it up yourself.

that's the easiest way. Near where I live there is a place called 'Ship Happens' that is just 2mins across the border. You pay them about $5 per package and have your stuff shipped there. You save 2 ways -- Shipping within the US is cheap and often free, and you don't need to pay a brokerage fee to have it brough back across the border (although you do still need to pay GST, pST duty etc if applicable)

also if you're going to be ordering springs checkout Sky's new front springs. They're designed very similar to the rears and supposed to work very well.

And make sure you get Marlins made in the USA ones, not the overseas garbage. AllPoos are oversea's shit too and sag really bad.

spend a couple extra buck up front and find some local supplier of whatever part you need
and save yourself tons of potential hassles l8er....
Just my experience.....building trucks and V-twins in the 80's and 90's using the "ship to" method
Can be sweet if everything is okay but a big loss and lots of stress if something is wrong unless your dealing with one or two specific places regularly...
or mayby im just too lazy any more to go through the hassles of that ...when someone else can and will do it for a couple o bucks

done this one before, the one thing is use the old one, not from the ones that look like the rangers, from the older body style

That why you order from a good company like Marlin and get their quality USA made springs that don't sag (they also sell a cheaper overseas version that isn't as good in order to compete pricewise with allpro etc). Plus they have awesome customer service, and are always very quick to make it right if they do screw up.

Allpro has gone down the shitter lately. Some of their products are still good, but their springs sag a lot.


Do your research first and ya won't get screwed

Sky also makes great stuff and has good service, but their springs are new so no one knows for sure how good they will hold up over time.




I do agree to try and keep your business local, but I haven't seen any local stuff that is quality like these and designed specifically for toyota rock crawlers.
