Dont buy those. If you want to get some decent cheap shocks get the bilstein 5100's. You can get those all around if you would like. Just a single aal still might not be enough. How do you want it to sit? Like stock just higher? Front higher? Level?

Are they the ones that came on the truck, are or they the Bilstein 5100's?

If they came off the truck from the factory, then no, I wouldn't upgrade. I'd get some Bilstein 5100's. For the AAL, I'd just go ahead and get a 3'' leaf pack from somewhere like All Pro or Alcan. With just the AAL back there, it'll be leaning like you have 10 bags of sand back in the bed.

Im not sure. I plan on getting some in the way future. If I remember some are bolt on and some weld on. You will need longer brake lines but the spindles should come with them. Total chaos makes 3.5" spindles but they are like $1350 and Camburg makes 4" and are about$1050

Depends on what you get. Some come scagged or something like that to prevent sagging. I bought mine used and it gave me 3". You shouldnt have to worry.

That would, but it'll ride worse and you run the risk of axlewrap, which you definitely don't want. Blocks don't flex nearly as good either. I'd stay far away from them.

I cant explain it but aal and leaf packs are way better to lift the rear. And if you offroad you dont want blocks. But you can always try it and see if you like it. Get like a 2" aal and a 1" block. Then if you dont like it switch.
