Default Leaf Spring Dimensions

I can find info for lots of makes online, but having problems finding it for our trucks.

How wide are the Hardbody leaf springs? Are they 2 1/2 inches like most others? Or a bit narrow like the early Toyota leaf springs? (I'm 1700 miles from my truck now and researching leaf packs I may be able to pull from a junkyard, disassemble, and use individual leafs as a full length add a leaf.

Thanks!

Wow! Big difference in the FSM between 94 and 95 -- the 95 I have downloaded is only 3 pages long for section RA! Thanks for the point to the 94 FSM.

So they are the same width as the early Toyota leaf springs. Hmmm...
