We're here now, feel free to call, or PM your ph# and I'll call you. Thanks.

Marco advised me of the same for my setup around 1 week ago - bump stops and brakeline bracket mod. DSM has seen alot of these, I'm confident in their recommendations.

We were talking about whether i should have gotten 5125s or the longer rear 5100s.

I'm not editing my post and yes I did insinuate Toytec had better customer service, it shouldn't matter b/c they still get my money. Now get off my friggin back.

I ran the regular length ones for awhile and wheeled fine but it did limit down travel. Best thing to do is measure your compresion/extension without the shock and go from there. I got the 9.25" 5125s and added a spacer under my bump stop. Based on the #s a 2" aal will have you close to 16" compressed/25" extended (that's my 3 leaf aal with overload). There's no point in running the shorter one with the numbers of 14/22 unless its for light trails where articulation isn't an issue!

The longer ones look good for a larger rear lift like allpro's standard/expedition pack........that's what I'll probably end up with. AAL will wear out over time and is a very temperary fix. Mine softened up considerably in a year after light to moderate use.

You running a wheelers progressive 3 leaf?

Mines just about flat after 30k of hard abuse.

Ya, wheelers 3 leaf! Had to add the overload back in and get softer bump stops as speed bumps will make it bottom out!

ttt, any new info on this?

I want to do Icon 3-leaf progressive AAL and leave in my overload spring on my stock 4-leaf pack. It should finish out at around 1.75" of rear lift.

Which Bilsteins should I buy for the rear?
