    So I ordered an AAL and a pair of rear 5100s from wheelersoffroad. I got the AAL installed and the 5100s, but it looks as if the shock will bottom out before my spring even comes close to the bump stop. Anyone had this problem?

    After the AAL my rear is riding about 2-3inches higher than the front. Wish I had some pics. I will take some later today. (I know eventually the AAL will flatten out.)

    with the aal......you should have probably gotten some 5125's instead of the 5100's..................they are a longer shock.
