    I just purchased my 5100s and a set of Fat Bob's Garage AAL. My truck sits pretty low with the tired (70k)non TBS leaf springs. With 1.5 to 2" of lift from AAL what should the 5100s be set at to achieve a level stance or slightly nose down (in case AAL don't give me enough lift)? Your opinions are all greatly appreciated.

    I carry a toolbox with tools in the back, and I'm only hoping for 1.5" of lift from the AAL. I think I will staTy out with 1.75" and go from there. Eibachs and Dealers when I'm ready for new tires. Thanks for the input.
