those who did the Wheeler's AAL

I just read that if you had a leaf that is longer on one side of the centering pin than the other it needs to go in certain way. I didnt measure it, and it looked equal to my naked eye. I didnt read anything about checking into this until now, and i assume the difference would be noticable right out of the box. no clue.

So untli i can get out there and measure it, maybe someone can put my mind at ease. If you put ina Wheelers #WHE ACH32 (the 2" AAL), do you remember if it was longer on one side of the centering pin?

I will look it over tomorrow.

For anyone else doign an AAL install, make sure you look to make sure your leaf is put in the stack properly. remember, do as i say and not as i do (or it will be wrong).

I just installed the wheelers 1.5" aal and the hole was dead center, I know you got the 2" though. I have seen a post from someone who installed an offset aal backwards with no major ill effects.

Mine was offset from center. I installed with the longer part faced forward to help counteract axle wrap.

i just gave it a quick measurement. either its too dark to see or i got it right with out trying. The only way its incorrect is if the difference in the long side and the short side is less than 1 inch. i measured 16" from the center oin to the back of the leaf and 15" from the centerign pin to the front of the AAL.

RelentlessTaco, when you put your's on, do you remember it being a big enough difference you saw it no problem or is it somethign like 1" or less?

It doesn't matter which way you install them but the longer side is supposed to be toward the rear of the truck. People have run them both ways, some intentionally, some by accident and neither orientation will cause any problems.

My wheeler's 1.5" AALs were dead even on either end of the center pin, about 15" both ways, give or take an eighth.
