Default Ford VAN, broken leaf springs, how doable?

Old 94 E-150 1/2 ton van POS! need it to last a bit longer. I think the springs are the same as an F-150 that's why i came here. Autozone has them for $200 per set. Is a boneyard an option for this stuff or is it against recommendation?

I think I can do the job myself, seems simple enough. Any tricks or tips that anyone may have?

Also, Autozone part is this

But I used amazon for a quick comparison and they have these for MUCH cheaper, plus one review used them on an E-150 JUST LIKE MINE! so thats good right?

Scratch the amazon item. It's a "helper" spring, not a direct replacement set of springs. They show the image of a full set of springs which is deceiving. I'll have to use the more expensive stuff to be an exact part match.

Posting this for the 1 guy 5 years in the future who ever googles the same problem I have
