Deaver or Alcan 1.5" AAL?

Was looking at getting the 3 leaf progressive AAL from wheelers and was wondering which is best.......Deaver or Alcan? Not confirmed but I think wheelers is alcan and not sure exactly where to pick up deaver. Mostly looking for a smooth ride by replacing the overload leaf with a progressive aal. Just picked up a full set of 5100's and toytec coilovers and want the rear improved!

Thanks,
Mike

Thanks for the reply! I checked out your build and your truck is sweet. I love seeing the progression....spacers (what I have), to mid-travel (what I'm going for) and to long travel (some day....)! You definitely picked the best suspension products too, in my opinion.

thanks man, it's been a long road

stay tuned, i'm gonna get the rear end done soon

in terms of the 3 leaf packs, they are prob both pretty much the same and you'll be happy w/ either

both deaver and alcan have great reps and turn out great products...
