help with broken leaf

hey i just noticed the center leaf is broken on my passenger leaf pack i'm thinkin either go to the junker and pull an expo leaf pack apart or gettin new leafs from the dealer but they cheapest fix would be best also how hard is it to do the chevy leaft swap on a 93 supercab 4x4 because i'd love to get rid on the blocks

there is a few threads about it. you drill out the rivits on the front hangers.. you use the forward holes for the back mount of the hanger drill 2 new holes forward and mount there then put axle back on it..

there is definatley a link in here someplace to a write up for the older trucks. on the older hanger, you only reuse one hole and drill three per side.
