3 Wheelers AAL installed

Hello Forum,

My current height specs with:
4 Bilsteins with front @.85,
Toytec 1/4" spacer on left front strut,
2012 OEM 3/1 leafs, Wheelers 3 leaf AAL + OEM overload leaf,
265/75r16 BFG A/T's:
LF 36.00 / RF 36.00
LR 39.00 / RR 39.00

RIDE HEIGHT (hub to fender)
LF 21.25 / RF 21.25
LR 24.25 / RR 24.25

I replaced my original 2/1 pack with these 3/1 leafs last Monday. It came off a 2012 with 5K miles on them. I like the raked look but a 3" rake is pretty steep. I'm gonna give it some time but if they don't settle then I might put the Billies @ 1.75.

I also installed a small bracket to allow the brake lines more travel.

I definitely do not want to level the truck. These trucks look nose high when completely leveled & I personally don't like that. Plus, when towing or carrying weight it looks like you are dragging your butt.

What do you guys think?

Looks good. How is the ride? I'm thinking about buying this exact setup in about a month except I will probably put the bilsteins at 1.85.

Looks good. Do you have the rear driveline vibration with the new AALs? Did you have it before the new leaves?

I got 23.5 without the overload from my ICON 3 leaf AAL. I might put the overload back when it settles.

Thanks everyone!

As for vibes, I have a low speed shudder between 12-22 but I had it before & it only intensified slightly. To the point where my wife, bro-in-law, & dad have driven it & don't notice any difference.I can live with it & it's not going to damage anything. I drove it up to 110 MPH & no vibes.

I like the stance.

Must be nice to have access to a private track to take it up to full speed.

PGHST2,
That's funny! I wish. I-75 in West Broward is what I drove on. I was scared as hell! I haven't had a ticket in years!

650H1,
I like the raked look also and I am seriously thinking of setting the fronts at 1.75 tomorrow. I would still have a 2" difference (front to back) if I do this. Would I still be able to get the alignment within, or at least close to specs at 1.75
