AAL advice

Ok guys,

I just finished putting on my front 5100s today. Set them at 1.75 and now even with the rear TSB I am sitting approx. 1 1/8" higher in the front than the back. was looking to be a bit more close to level so now I gotta get an AAL. My question is this. I can go with a 1.5" AAL and probably sit even. would getting the 2" make it alot of rake? I would like to tow or haul every now and then and now stare at the sky. What do you think?

a 2 inch aal should be fine...cause it will settle after a little bit.

that's what I am leaning toward. I just wanted some experienced advice. Rather do it once and be done!

Is there any concern of DS vibration abnormal wear, or just awkward angle with the TSB + 2"AAL?

you could possibly have some vibes from the drive shaft.....but do this, and it will help to eliminate the vibes......

Is that the infamous "axle wrap?"

I always think of Axel Rose pretending he's Vanilla Ice when I hear that phrase

no........thats just some vibrations from the angle of the drive shaft. axle wrap is where the axle actually kinda rolls forward or backward a bit and you get a clunk from it sliding near the rear diff.

your comparison is awesome tho!!

So.. no need for shims..? Thinking about it they work the same as shims but lower DS for straighter angle... right?

My truck still has a rake with the 5100's @ 1.75 and the TSB. Back is about 1 inch highber. Are you sure the coil seats aren't installed upside down on the billys? It's a common mistake.
