AAL Recommendation

Does anyone have a particular brand of AAL that they recommend. I see some for as little as $50 on ebay as well as some going for over $100.

Whats the difference between the 3 leaf set and the 1 leaf set? It looks like they both provide the same amount of lift.

Anyone have experience with both? Is it worth twice as much money?

Mine are ProComp and came w/ my lift kit. They were easy to install and the ride is just a little stiffer.

I have Icons in front and Wheeler's AAL and Bilstein 5100"s on the rear and the difference in ride quality is remarkable.

Hey Tigerfan! I was thinking about getting this and getting rid of my toytec AAL. But I want to keep my 1" block so that I have 2.5" lift. Is this a good idea, or could it cause bad axle rap bc you get rid of the OLL? thanks for any help!!!

I don't know if you want others' opinions, but IMO blocks are bad for axle wrap, and removing the AAL, just makes it worse, because now your spring (pack) is even weaker.

ok. So if I leave my OLL in, does it give you more then 1.5 of lift? What was your total lift with the OLL left in Tiger?

cool! well I think that this and some 5100's in the rear will be my next upgrade. I hate the AAL+1" block in rear and I have some Rancho's in the rear as well. Its a rough ride back there!!! Not liken it....
