Those should bolt right up, no mods required.

I know you're trying to get off as easily and cheaply as possible, but for $200 more you can get a complete rear kit from Trail-Gear and get one hell of a suspension...

Other than that your questions are answered above.

I used the tuff country leafs on my tacoma. WOrked great. You might need to use a longer brake line and relocating bracket. Check your u bolts too. Your link is for trailmaster. Not sure if they are exactly the same.

with just Bj spacers in the front it will sit real high in the rear with a trail-grear kit, that is what i have in my runner and it is tall for a 3in kit, im clearing 37's and hopeing it will sag some

You might also consider Downey springs, I just installed the 3" ones on mine and I also have extended shackles. I have BJ spacers in the front. Ride quality improved dramatically and Flex seems pretty good for a stock length spring.

Alot of guys have said they sag after a while and I hope they are right as I would like to lose about an inch of lift. I also did longer SS brake lines just to be safe. I paid $233.00 shipped to my door.

This is with 33x10.5's

Unless you try to retrofit spring from some other vehicle(ie 63" chevies), you won't have to move your hanger. The springs just have a higher arch.
