    have had 2" spacers on the front to keep my truck level for only a couple months for temporary decent look but now have the extra money to lift my truck. looking for a true 3 inches but was wondering if i could run the spacers and buy a set of 5100's to raise an inch to give me 3 in the front then buy blocks or AAL in the rear with 5100's. and found a complete 3" setup on ebay from skyjacker for 300$ with the AAL included. just not to sure where to go in this situation so hopefully you guys can help.

    guys have any experience of info on skyjackers products? that full kit shocks, struts, and AAL for 300 is such a good buy if their stuff is legit.

    AALs are a better way to go, the ride may be a bit stiffer but the block will cause axle wrap. The AAL will increase hauling capacity a little bit. I've heard of blocks cracking and other horror stories with blocks.

    ya i'd rather pony up the cash then fix the slew of problems the blocks may or may not cause later down the road.
