Literally a 'plug and play' unit. I was rear ended at a red light resulting in my right rear tire being pushed forward, bending my stock leaf stack. It had a Skyjacker softride add a leaf. Stock replacement for a Toyota Tacoma 2001 Xtra cab was almost $500. For less than that, I got a 2 inch lift PAIR of leaf stacks and I didn't have to fiddle with putting the add-a-leaf onto a replacement stock leaf stack. PLUS, the ride with these springs is 100 times better than the add a leaf/stock combo. The only thing I had to deal with was grinding/drilling out the old main eye bolts since they were seized to the frame, but what do you expect for a 7 year old truck. Once bolts were out, you just drop out the old, put in the new, and tighten everything. I do recommend you order new shackles and main eye bolts from toyota if you plan to use this application. And if any questions, new U-brackets. I haven't needed any degree shims, unlike the add aleafs. those I needed to use a set of 5 degree shims due to driveline vibrations.
