    i wanted to know if i put a 3in block in the rear along with aal, do i have to extend the brake lines or should they already be long enough, and do i have to put one of those angle shims under the block to fix the angle of the diff with the driveshaft??:confused:

    I have a procomp 6 inch. I put a 3 inch block with a 3 degree shim and took out the block that came with the lift. I wanted to have a little rake in it so when I pull my boat, it is level. It put the rear of my truck, 1 inch higher than the front. If you want it level, you could get a 2.5 inch block.
    I wish I knew how to post pictures. I could show you what it looks, like.

    I believe that you would need to extended your brakelines.

    Hopyfully you have longer shocks in the back too? What size is the AAL? 1.5", 2"?

    i have a 2 in block with the procomp aal it said it was a 1.5-2.5in lift based on spring condition. and due to the lift the parking break line hanger on the leaf springs broke off whenever the suspension was a full flex i am guessing considering its not attached anymore, and yeah its kinda tight. break lines look okay to me

    You are correct. That is the setup i have. I didn't have to extend my lines. I don't wheel my truck so I don't know what the flex would do.
