Since you have a new truck I will give you this heads up about AALs; they sqeak after a couple of weeks or so. Especially after you get a little dirt in them. It really annoyed me. I talked to several people and it is a normal issue. You need to grease them when you install them and on a regular basis afterwards.

The other thing to look at is the coilover rubbing the sway bar even with the relocation brackets installed. This is an issue with other brands of coilovers beside Toytec. I just read someone having the same issue with their Camburgs. It happens and annoyed me.

I would suggest looking at OME too. If I could do it over I would have bought OME with Dakar leaf springs.

First off, our AAL don't squeak. Not a common complaint, or people don't comment on it.
We use anti-friction pads on our AAL to prevent just that.
Greasing the AAL

The kit you spoke of should work excellent for you. You just need to pick which coil is best going to fit your load capacity needs.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

X2. If the springs squeak, its due to a poor cleaning during install, or a soak in the mud. My AAL's havent squeaked ever....

Mine squeak. I was advised to use white lithium grease by the dealer that sells your products. Their whole office staff knew squeaking is a very common problem that they also suffer from squeaking AAL.

And yes, a WD-40 soaking, helps me get through for a couple of weeks.
