    Getting ready to order my rear lift and was wondering whether to do a single leaf.. Or do the 3 leaf from Icon or wheelers.

    Which is better? Better ride?

    What do you think?

    Thanks

    I don't think it matters, I got it from DSM when I sent in my coilovers to get rebuilt and told them I needed a good AAL do that's what they sent me.

    You need to redrill you brake bravkets to get em to fit you don't need extended brake lines and the TSB plus Icon 3 leaf is too stiff unless you have 200+ pounds in your bed.

    I have the TSB leaf pack with the Icon 3-leaf and the overload in place and love the ride! The 5100's I have paired with the setup seems to be stiffening up over time but overall it rides great! I didn't use extended brake lines but don't do much in the way of off roading either.
