Looks good! I am thinking of doing the same set up. How does it ride? About how much lift did you get in the front?

Just ordered the same setup. I am going with a 1.5" aal instead of the tsb.

How was the install?

Thanks man..it gave me about 1.5" of lift in the front with the spacer, but i've only driven it about 150 miles since i installed it.. hopefully it wont settle in and drop down any more.. i like the look

install went pretty smooth.. about 4 hours with me taking my sweet time...i rented this spring compressor from autozone and after i assembled the first new coil, the hooks that actuallly grab the springs were too big to remove from between the coil... i had to work them all the way toward the bottom of the spring where there is a larger gap and pry them out... scratched the hell out of my new spring and i lost an hour messing with it!

so far, no vibes at all... well, i do get the occasional "damn, i wish that was my truck!" vibes from other truck owners as i pass them... As far as the ride quality?... my wife even noticed the huge difference from the oem set up.. much smoother going over rough roads here in illinois, much less body lean taking corners.. WELL WORTH the $$!!
