Turn Signal Assembly, Leaf Springs, etc.

Hi All! I picked up a 79 toyota 4x4 a while back to use as a daily driver. Been pretty happy with it as it's driving solid. I have a few questions though, and hoping you all can point me in the right direction for swapping out some parts.

First, the previous owner wired in some generic turn signal assemblies and duct taped them to the old bumper. A few weeks after I got it the passenger side assembly fell off at some point while I was driving (no idea when) and so I'm in the market to get some OEM type turn signals to put on the brand new bumper (old one was twisted up and garbage) that I just put on. I ordered some from the Yota Yard that I found through this site but it seems they sent me the 82-84 style assembly, rather than the 79-81 assembly. From what I can find the OEM style part I'm looking for is tyc part # 12-1112-00 (passenger side) and tyc part # 12-1113-00 (driver side). Except that part has been discontinued so I'm not sure where else to look. I do plan on calling up Yota Yard on Monday to find out if they have the actual assembly I'm looking for, but if I can find it any other way that would be awesome.

Second, the leaf springs and shocks need to be replaced badly. Front end is drooping and it rides really hard. I've seen the dimensions for the leaf springs and found a set brand new but it will have to ship from Michigan and I'm wondering if there are any other stock-alike options that I might be able to find easier. Specifically I'm not looking for a lift or anything, I just want to get back to the stock height mostly so it rides smoother. Options? Also, should I be looking at swapping the rear leaf springs at the same time? They aren't drooping yet, but are fairly low. I can post pictures tomorrow when there is light if asked for.

Thanks for any and all help!
