That will tell you roughly what your final stance will be.
Ok cool, I was concerned about that but if it doesn't affect ride quality much then sweet... Definitely going this route, now I just need to find the best places to get the products and some one local who knows what they're doing to help me install( idk shit about installing these lol) definitely some one who has done it before successfully

I am pretty sure in saying that your ride will be better with a replacement leaf pack but like I said, my setup works and rides great for me until I can upgrade...

Agreed, but for now, I'm good with just throwing on the progressive AAL, especially If the ride will still be solid... Only reason I'm not upgrading everything is bc I just bought her a month ago an makin some pretty deep payments from my dealer, although I jewed em down quite a bit... In the nxt 6 months to a year, I should be ready to upgrade everything, coil overs most likely

for stock wheels you need spacers, the susp doesnt make a difference.

Spidertraxx are the best. allpro makes spacers as well.

Depends on what wheel you run and Spidertrax are probably the best spacers out there....

How would I go about that to avoid problems? Just take it out before starting install?

As for the rear, you're stiffening up the rear leaf pack by throwing an AAL in there. People have run the stock leaf pack with an AAL on the stock shock however I feel it doesn't adequately dampen the ride and can make it feel sort of bouncy. For a short period of time I'm sure it would be fine, just try to avoid harsh top outs but you'll probably want to upgrade the rear shocks in the semi-near future.
hey man i kno its been a while for this thread but no sense in making a new one! im taking a trip to vegas in 2 months and want to have the lift on with the tires etc. holding off on shocks will save me for time being... i would be ok with the 1.5" AAL with stock shocks right? just clarifying before i start!
