Good point it would depend on how much you were saggin...
when I put them in with no lift in the rear it sits perfectly level.

I paired mine with Bilstein 5100 shocks all the way around. Opinions vary on whether to do this, or go with the Nitrochargers.

I'm on stock rims with 265/70R16 BFG A/T KOs, which I installed before the lift. I will likely upsize a little (i.e., 265/75R16s) when I replace these.

This is a good option, IF your leafs aren't shot, for which our trucks are somewhat notorious. If your leafs are shot, an AAL will help, but not for long. Since they're not designed to do the entire leaf pack's job, they'll end up flattening prematurely, at which point you're right back to replacing the leafs themselves...
