    Hey guys i'm looking into getting rid of the blocks and getting some leafs that will keep my 6" and I want to order from Alcan, im just wondering if anyone has ordered from them and maybe has some good feedback or negative.
    Thanks.

    How much lift did you need? And how much did it end up costing?
    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Had them made for a 6 inch lift + an extra 250 lb for gear and the cost was around 700 i think

    TRD Headers, Aero Turbine AT2525XL Deckplate Mod, TRD tranny cooler, King Coilovers, LR UCAs, Alcan 5 Leaf springs and Bilstein 5100s, Shrockworks front bumper, CBI rear bumper.
    I ordered the 5 leaf replacement packs for my Taco directly from Alcan.
    I didn't need custom built leafs, as I just wanted to lift the back about an inch so the truck sat level (toytecs on the front set at about 2.75"). I do some mild off-roading, tow a boat, and haul a few things now and then.
    I called and discussed what I wanted, how I used my truck, etc. directly with the owner. He was easy to talk to. The price and shipping was reasonable. Since I just wanted the standard 5 leaf packs, they keep them in stock, so I didn't have to wait for them to be built. I would definitely buy from them again.
