1 inch closer to the ground!

Changed my 2 inch drop to a 3 inch drop. Not that noticeable by looking at it but I can feel it.

Out with the old.



In with the NEW.



Before.



After.

since you ride in it so much, you tend to notice the little things

when I swapped my AAL for my leaf pack, I went up 1.7" in the rear
holy shit, the first time I got in I felt like the truck was going downhill

looks good!

like previously stated you will notice eventually or will instantly. I stare at my truck a lot ... more so that my parents seem to think I have mental problems ... .. but I notice the little things to the larger things here and there but mostly due to watching/listening for them even though I have the stereo up. In all honesty it's your ride, you should in a sense be in tuned with it since it's your method of transportation as well as something you ride in a lot.

Any big differences between the single adjustable kit and the double adjustable kit?

The price and the double gets it way stiffer.

It's not reeeeally needed, but since you don't have a notch, you might want it.

You should be fine with the single adjustable shocks though.
