Rear Lift w/ LEER cap question?

Guys,

I am about to order my new suspension components:

-LR UCA's
-5100's w/885 OME coils (set at 0) for about 2.5" of front lift
-5100 Rear shocks
-1.5 or 2" inch rear lift (AAL or block, undecided)

I am going to put a LEER cap on the truck. I want the truck to ride level, with no rake.

Should I get a 1.5" rear lift or 2" lift to offset the weight of the cap? Your thoughts?

S/F

Jim

Icon or Wheeler's 1.5" AAL and leave the overload leaf in place. Gives you 2" of lift and rides great with a shell.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

Even the Dakars will sag some under the constant weight of a cap , mine sagged 5/8" in just over a year with my commercial Leer cap , the 100RCC

I am going to add the OME AAL , the d29xl

I have an inch and a quarter on the front and then did a add a-leaf in the rear, with or without my LEER cap my truck sits level. I might do a 3 inch left one day but I like how it sits and rides.

Which 2" AAL does everyone recommend. I would like the Dakar leaf packs, just cant afford 400.00 for the rear alone right now. Thanks!

JMWOLF96,

I suggest contacting Doug a member "4WD" here at TW. I think you will like his solution. I do believe he is near you as well.
