And yes, leafs can be very flexy. However, even with the flex it currently has, doing that exercise makes me want coils/coilovers even more. And for anyone going with the Toyota long travels for the front, I highly recommend checking into the Heavy Duty front 5" leafs from TrailGear (I posted a thread on it awhile back). I have 6" leafs front and rear and the rear definitely have more lift, which when it comes to compressing, give 'em more to go. And leafs can have just as much droop as compression, it all depends on how angled the shackles are when sitting at ride height.
I wanted coils from the beginning just because it is my daily driver. I'd ridden now in too many leaf front trucks and didn't like it very much for a daily commute that I make on back roads.

Still, many of the best offroad trucks I've run across do have leaf fronts. The are simpler overall for sure and very rugged.

The diff cover ain't the only shiny part!

And I've had several issues with the front driveshaft. I'm currently in the process of hopefully alleviating any future issues.
