I have a stock leaf pack, no-TSB, for a DCSB, and I want to get 1.5" to 2" of lift in the rear with an AAL. What is the best AAL for ride quality, load capacity, and quiet, or just all around? I know an AAL is going to make it worse than stock, and an AAL is not as good as a new pack, but neither of those options are going to work, dont have the money to buy new packs, and I dont off-road that hardcore, and I want to maintain my lift. I have been leaning towards a progressive 3 pack AAL, like the Wheelers one, but then there is the heavy duty and regular one...? Is there a better all around AAL?
I have 5100s in the rear, and some random AAL currently, it has no friction pads and squeaks like hell. I have cleaned it and it still squeaks. I also added some plastic plates inbetween the leafs, but still have squeaks. I am getting a practically new stock non-TSB leaf pack from another member, and hoping that it is my bushings that need replacing, and a new leaf pack will solve that issue, and fix the fact that mine are a little worn out with 110k miles on them.
