Not to sound like an A-hole, but damit man search. The Daily Topic posts should answer your questions.

Triangle are a brand of spring, like skyjacker, etc. Many scout owners really like the Triangle brand of lift spring.

The caster correctors will make a huge difference in a long commute. Much easier if the rig likes to go straight. I drove with zero caster (factory), negative caster (very, very bad idea), and now 6 degrees of positive caster. Much, much safer. I now feel comfortable taking the longer drives I dreaded before. I was a serious safety hazard with that negative caster.

Spend the money. Your nerves will appreciate it.
