    I will be ordering my lift soon, but I am having to make a tough decision. I will be purchasing 5100's @ .85 with Eibach Coils, which would bring me to 2.5" up front. From what I have read, 1.5" TSB AAL will level me out, but I am worried about it maybe sagging and giving me a "bro lift." I know that the 2" AAL would give me a rake, but I just don't want a "bro lift." Will the 1.5" TSB AAL level me out, and can I even use it if I don't have 4 leafs (currently have 3 leafs)

    I have 5100 ready go in the front and 1.5 AAL for the back. I was planning on setting the 5100 at 1.75, with 1.5 should but me at a good stance. But, I’m now thinking I should get OME 844 springs to add to the front, just for a better ride, which may put me a little front high???
    If you go to 2.5 with the Eibach are you going to have UCA issues? I would like to stay right around 2” in the front and hope not to have any alignment issues.

    You can use the tsb AAL without the Tsb. I personally would go with the 2" because i like a little rake and stock leaf springs sag if you haul alot of weight in the bed

    I will be carrying a good amount of weight (roughly 150lbs) from time to time. I usually only tow a trailer about once every 3 months. Thanks for the input. I'm probably going to get the 2", but just wanted to hear some more input. Thanks again.

    How heavy is the trailer? I personally have dakars with a leaf removed and they are great for hauling/towing. I have heard great things about wheelers 3 leaf AAL. They now offer a HD version which would be ideal for either constant weight in the bed or heavy hauling/ heavy tounge weight

    Not heavy at all; one of those you can throw a lawnmower on. I think I'm gonna pull the trigger on the 2" AAL because it comes in a complete package on toytechlifts.com.
