AAL sag after 6k miles (all highway)



Is this normal settling for an aal with approx 6k miles on it. (bought from toytec 1.5" aal)
-no i dont tow anything
-heaviest thing i have had in the back since install is mtn bikes

just checking because it seems a little excessive to me as the aal has a high point at the axle, its not one smooth curve

Looks to be because you don't have the TSB leaf pack and that single AAL is trying to support a lot of weight on it's own.

Well this helps me make my decision. I was debating between an AAL or 5-Leaf OME and now I know what to do... Going with the OME leaf pack.

Yeah I think I'm going to go OME Dakar leaf pack. I'm already sporting OME everywhere else, might as well continue the trend.

I'm loving mine. All I've hauled is firewood. My stockers with an AAL turned into "W"s with a half a face in it. Now with the Dakar's, I can carry a full face and a half without any trouble. The ride isn't bad either, maybe a little stiffer, but nothing I notice without thinking about it

Good luck with yours!

I was in the same boat you were. I put my AAL on and less the 10k I was back to bottoming out. This is what mine looked like with the AAL. You can tell they were shot.


With the AAL a couple of weeks ago.

I decided that I wanted to replace the leaf pack so I won't have to do it in the future. I decided on the Dakar OME leaf pack. As mentioned above it is great. I just put it on last night but have noticed a night a day difference. It is much stiffer but doesn't really change the ride. I no longer bottom out and the ride is much more balanced (the rear suspension seems to match the front better) Here is some picture I took today.

YUP...that's exactly what mine looked like. It seems the AAL holds up pretty well, but the stockers just warp right around them!

Yeah the AAL did as much as it could do, but my factory leafs were garbage. All the strength in the rear leaf pack was coming from the AAL and thats a lot to expect from one leaf. The truck feel like a whole new truck. Everytime I drive it i'm grinning from ear to ear... no more bottoming out.... bring on the bumps...

No kidding, the truck is very stable in the curves too! Mine handles quite nimbly. Though I do have to remind myself I'm not driving a race car once in a while!

Neil, thanks for sharing the pics. It looks a lot more even.

I've got enough for the lift and am just saving a bit more for some UCAs by LR then will do the whole setup.

Wow, have the newer 3 leaf packs gotten even shittier? Mine are 05 and have had Toytec AAL for couple of years without issue. Have hauled 1500 lbs a coupla times and load it up with kayaks, camping equip, bikes, landscaping stuff for house & all kinda different stuff on regular basis and they are still good.
