    yeah blocks are really bad, they cause premature dearching of your springs, go with an aal.

    NO no, you do not need longer you bolts if you are doing the AAL with no shims. ONLY if you are putting the shims in with the AAL, are you in need of new U-bolts.

    As long as your U bolts are not rusty you can reuse them. Before you try and take them off i suggest you soak them in a little wd40. It will make it much easier to take them off.

    FWIW, Its recomended that the U bolts be replaced when adding an extra lift leaf. They are a stressed bolt, and are not intended to be re used.

    Either AAL will work for ya. It all depends on how much rear lift you need to be level.

    Being as you have an '09, You may be able to re use them. Im only saying that its recomended they be replaced as, technically, they are not a re usable bolt>
