leaf springs?

Does anyone know were I can find some good but not too exspensive leaf springs, that will give me up to a 2.5" or 3" lift. Bc I would like to sooner or later get rid of my rear blocks, and i heard that thats the best way too go. Although, I dont do much off roading, I just like to do things right. And I know I should of done my research on lifts before I got my RevTek, But Im like some people that just cant wait to have my truck lifted. Any Help would be Nice.

New leaf packs aren't cheap. What's your budget like? Have you looked into AALs or shackles?

Yeah I know there not cheap, But I really dont want to go over 500-600 bucks, I would like to stay under 5 or 4 hundred.

I have looked into AAL's and they seems pretty good, theres just some down sides to them, Ive heard that they could break.

Strange - it's loading alright for me. If you're browsing from work it's possible that the network admins blocked the site, but other than that I'm not sure what could be causing it.

Did you get the springs and got rid of the revteck blocks? I dont like the blocks and want things done right. So I might go with the AAL's or full leaf pack.

If I got the Toytech AAL's, Will they give me only 2"s of lift, or 3"s. It doesn't say on there website. If it's 2" thats kinda good, bc then I can get the 1" block with new U bolts, bc I think Im ganna need new U bolts. The ones I got with my Revtech lift are too long, and I didnt save my factory one's. But I would like to know what size lift the AAL's will give me.

Email Toytec and ask them--they're good about replying quickly and are very helpful and know their product--they'll be able to give you the info you need to find out exactly what you'll get with the AALs. Or you can call them and ask--their number is on the website. I did both before I ordered my lift and had good results from them.

I see, yeah I thought about just doing a 2" in the rear and leveling it out, But I kinda like the back a little bit higher.

Get a set of Alcans or these!

Then all you would have to get are some longer shackles.
