6" lift rear suspension options

So I am looking into getting the Procomp 6" stage 2 lift, but I was wondering if the AAL and U-Bolt option for the rear was a good idea or should I try to get the whole rear leaf system rebuilt? Is that even possible? Any input would be great. Thanks!

I would get a new leaf pack, blocks don't make the drivetrain/leaves/axlewrap happy normally..

They ride awesome, perform better, and look way better than blocks.
Fairly soon, the paint he uses will degrade and you'll start to see rust spots. It's understandable. It's just the only "bad", if you could call it that, thing that I have noticed about them.
your ride is SO Bamf

Thats awesome thanks everyone. Yeah I looked up Alcan and I actually don't live too far from him, so I might swing by and see what they have.

Is the All Pro pack all you have in the back? So 3" pack will work (sorta)?

I have not gotten them rebuilt yet, Because i have buddy that rebuilds them. I called Pro comp and they said you cant rebuild yourself they have to be rebuilt by them. They told me the only way to rebuild them is to be sent to pro comp to be rebuilt, because they have a special machine to it which is crock of crap.

yeah I heard they can be like that.. Well is there a certain time that they give the shocks before they have to be rebuilt? or is it just once you beat the shit out of them.
