    Actually, We used new U bolts, as the ones used on the block were too long. You should be fine re useing the ones you have.

    Great work Chris! BTW, I know you took a block out but what would be the expected lift height in the rear from the TSB 4-leaf to the TSB 4-leaf + AAL? Just curious ~ thanks.

    Thanks Chris!
    I just installed my add-a-leaf today. This DIY made the install a breeze.
    Took my time, :turtleride: and finished the job in five hours.
    Thanks again!!

    Very nice write up Chris! I printed this and followed it step by step. The only difference is that my U-bolt (TSB) nuts are 19 mm.

    When I was removing the nuts, there was no resistance at all. I doubt it was torqued at 100 Nm.:eek: I had about 1/2" thread left before the AAL and yet it's still about 1/2" after the AAL torqued at 100Nm:eek: It really surprised me since it was just serviced by the dealership a week ago!

    By the way, how often should I check the torque? I was wheeling 2 weeks ago though. Do they really get loose after wheeling?

    Also, what is the torque of the lug nuts? I just tightened them hard. Checked at 80 Nm.


    Thanks.
