2000 Ranger, rear leaf spring replacement question

Hello.

I just bought a 2000 Ranger yesterday. Pretty nice truck for $4000.

However, it was making a noise as we were driving so I got underneath it today and noticed that the leaf spring needs replaced. The second 'leaf', not the bigger top one, is broken in half and hanging a bit loose and banging into the shock when we hit bumps.

So anyway, I found what I think will work on this website..

...this is the one I THINK is the right one based on the code inside the driver side door, which has the code "DK" (see attachment)

I want to just get both of them new and be done with it.
That seems to be the right spring. What do you Ranger pros think?


Howdy, by the way.
:-)

edit...nevermind about the rim size.
Just talked to a guy who tells me that 16" tires are much more common today than they were 15years ago so it probably wont be a problem
