Rear leaf spring identification

Hey guys, been around here for along time, usually lurking and researching/reading. First thread asking for help.

I'm trying to eliminate my rear end sag, back to stock would be ideal, but slightly lifted would be okay too. I plan to do a Zuk mod at some point, but don't have the funds at the moment, so I planned to throw some extended shackles in for an immediate/cheap fix, then remembered I had a set of four leaf springs buried in my shop that my buddy gave me years ago when he couldn't afford to pay me rent that month. He said they were 3" lift leaf springs for a toyota truck/4runner.

My question is, is there a way to know if they will fit my truck, and how much lift it will give me? I am assuming the '3" lift' is from stock height, so it will lift the rear end to stock +3".. which might be too much? Would I need longer shocks if that is the case?

I have researched how to measure my new leafs, and will do that tonight, but what do I compare those numbers to?

Right now my the rear end is riding with about 2" between the bump stops, if that makes any difference.


Here is a pic of the springs I have.

Thanks!

Alright, I've found the other sets of leaf springs in my shop, which are actually the rears, that picture is of the front leaf springs of the set.

Found the part numbers on them too. Should be able to figure out what I need to.

Mods feel free to delete this thread.
