Downey used to make decent stuff, but i haven't heard anything about them in ages. I thought maybe they went outta business...?

I'd also suggest checking out allpro, trailgear, marlin & sky-mfg for new springs. Can't remember if any of them have direct bolt ins, but they all make great stuff. Many of them offer leaf packs for up front that are very similar to the stock rear packs. One of these might work really well in the back of a stockish truck like yours. just do some research before you buy so you don't end up with some crappy stiff springs
