    my truck rear is lifted with the wheeler's 5 leaf pack and its still lower than the front. i have the 5100s all around but it is still lower than the front because my truck is a 4 cycl. with 881s and 0's. my questions are: can i add a 1.5" leaf from wheelers to the 5 leaf pack that i just put on for a couple months now. can i get the aal or should i go with lift shackles?
    i don't haul at all but sometimes i load stuffs for camp and its really pack in the bed. suggestions?

    X2 I'd like to know as well, I have the same issue. Though I have stock coils set on the middle setting.

    Also, with the aal, I would need to get a brake line extension, and maybe shims correct?

    thanks!

    AAL will maje it stiffer than it already is, plus you have to remove the leaf pack and dissassemble it. A shackle is just a helluva lot easier.
