I am rehabilitating a 1995 Nissan D21 Hardbody. One thing it needs is new leaf springs. Some questions ...

  • I've heard that coil springs are better than leaf springs. Is it possible to get coil springs for this model?
  • Since the springs will be replaced one way or the other, I was thinking about a lift kit, both for clearance and 'cause it looks cool. What can be done?
  • I was told the lift kits can be hard on the transmission because it causes the drive shafts to be at an angle. Is this a concern?
Please advise in any way you can related to this

Ok, so that answers my first question. Leaf springs it is. I don't want to do any radical modifications.
Just curious, why are leaf spring better for trucks?
I should have probably mentioned this is 4WD.
