What?! No DIY for Leaf Pack Replacements?

Okay,

I know its probably easier to replace the leaf packs than doing an AAL. But did I miss a thread about this? More specifically what are the torque specs for attaching the new springs with new bushings?

---
I am looking at the Alcan 3.5 inch lift springs with the 2.0 or 2.5 Rear Fox Shocks with reservoirs.

I just want to be sure I purchase the right setup, would the 10 inch travel shocks be correct? Extended length: 26.10" | Collapsed length: 16.10"

---
Lastly, do I need the brake line extensions?
---

Is an AAL system just as comparable as a leaf pack?


Thanks in advance!
~ Chuck

i would go with new packs over AAL and i dont think you need a extended rear brake line but i am not 100% sure on that

If you're going to running that much lift and travel I'd get the extended brake lines...

Yeah better safe than sorry. So did anyone have the AAL and then get a leaf pack... did you see a ride difference?

If you look at the OME install sticky, it includes replacing the leaf pack.
