Well, maybe I can add some luck? I just swapped out my original '99 springs (rear only, haven't done the front yet) with 190k miles and you can have them if you want them. I'm in GA, south of Newnan just outside of Manchester and go to LaGrange about once a week (Thursdays normally), could do Newnan with notice though. Too much effort to ship, but I'll gladly hand them to you in person. If, for some reason, you want all 4, I ought to have the fronts in a couple weeks (going camping this weekend).

I measured the springs at 20.5" from hub center to the bottom of the fender flare (limited flares measure different than the smaller SR5 and chrome trim if you have those). Based on what others have posted of their springs, they haven't sagged much at all but compare to what you have now.

I've been running '99 Talls Moog rear springs for about 2 years and I'd say they're worth it. Still have a decent rake when unloaded and sit level with the back loaded up with tools and computers for work.
$36 well spent.

I Just religiously searched crigslist / KSL / facebook every day until I found what I was looking for. Got very lucky with the 881 OME springs although I don't really like them that much.

I bought amazon suspension on my brother 4Runner
Been 3 years now with no issue.
I believe they were pretty cheap and it was just a knock off oem part I believe.

That's an awesome offer! I did order the Moog/KYB combo all around along with some 2.5" Daystars for the front and rear just because I know I'd want to do it later on. Thank you though! Now to just figure out how to assemble the strut assembly for the front together.

You made a good choice for what you want to use the vehicle for. You will need a strut compressor to safely assemble the front struts and will need a pair of new strut mounts (tops) also.

I picked up a pair of KYB upper mounts from Amazon when I replaced my front struts/springs couple weeks back.
Also picked up a low cost but good quality spring compressor on Amazon which worked out great.

Thank you! I got them all assembled safely and fine. The only thing now is - over speed bumps, the suspension pops if I go over a reasonable speed (didn't before swapping). Any ideas? I know it's a plethora of things but just wanted any easy fixes. KYB/Moog setup.

Also just made a post involving the 2.5" lift that I had problems with if anyone wants to help me chime in on that issue
