leaf springs broken

Hi all, I have a 94 Ranger XLT 2wd and the middle leaf spring on both sides is completly broken in half. I was just wondering if anyone could help me out with where to find some cheap replacements other than local junkyards. The only leafs I can find online are for lifts and I am just looking to replace OEM. Thanks guys.

Dealer is probably your best bet for new
Junkyard is best for cheap prices. I replaced my passenger side after busting the overload spring and it only cost $35 per side.

Are there any other trucks that the springs can be used? And I don't meant Exploders, I'm talking other models (F150) or even other brands? Just to make it a broder search at the yards.

f150s are too big and wont fit without modification and ride like ****.

You could do the chevy 60 something inch swap and flip your shackles for extra travel.

But your going to have to go to a junkyard. Why not just replace them with a set off a Ranger?
