Thanks for the info. Like I said, looking for a bit of an improved load handling capability, but not a super stiff ride like some leaf packs can give you empty.

More like how a truck should ride then. While I like the ride of my truck, it could be a touch firmer. And it seems like that is what this aal would do for me.

My initial thought is that the trucks looks way better. The ride is pleasantly ever so slightly stiffer than stock. I do have a slight vibe at 65-70 mph, but the mechanic needs to re-align the truck.
Any info on the vibe?

No, Im letting it settle a bit, then I will get it aligned again. I'm not excited with my last alignment results. Its super faint at 65 mph now. Maybe I'm just being picky.

** UPDATE**

This morning I installed a OME FK29 Driveline Carrier Bearing Drop Kit
http://wheelersoffroad.com/product/m...ring-drop-kit/

$12.35 + $7.00 Shipping

Vibes are gone!!!

Ride is great, feels great. I still need to improve the alignment.

Yes. I ideally wanted 2.5 + but it's was better than original alignment. Don't think I'll wear tires.
