lowering leaf springs


i was thinking about getting a set of belltech lowering springs...would it be worth the money to get them. What benefits would i get as in handling and ride. or should i just throw some more blocks in. any opinions/info?

I ran 'em for almost two years and didn't have any complaints. They helped handling by controlling body roll and stiffened up the ride just a bit.

They work well, I had them on a S10 Blazer.... Just belltechs kinda kill hauling on a daily truck, Kind of the reason Ive stayed away from them on my Daily Silverado (I tow with it) And they are also hella expensive imo For the amount of money you spend on a good drop kit for a Yota, it could be bagged

the drop leafs will be nice if you have the funds to buy them. blocks can lead to axle hop, but that's not super important on a 116 h.p. minitruck lol

if you plan on keeping it static i'd say do the leafs, if you think bags will be in the future i'd do blocks since they are cheap. i had 5" blocks on my dime, got them from AIM with new u bolts for $36 and never had a problem with em.
