    I know there are quite a few of us that purchased the AP leafs for the Nov. deal. I'm curious if any of you are interested in doing a Leaf Spring install day at my house. I have all the necessary tools including air tools. I'm on vacation starting 12/23 for two weeks or we can set up a sooner date. Let me know if anyone is interested.

    BTW, I live in Fontana so maybe if it's not too late when we're done installing we can do a quick run up to Cleghorn which is just up the freeway from me to test out our new leafs.

    Post up if you're definitely interested in doing this group install at my house this way we can establish a date and how many people. After we set a date, then the guys that are willing to just show up and help will know if they can make it or not.

    Install:

    1) Johnnie
    2) tacomaville my leafs dont get here til after the 15th per sarah
    3)

    Possible Helpers:

    1) jdkeller
    2) in2nite
    3) FixedTRD
    4) tacomaville
    5) blackhawke88

    Ya, Ventura is a little far but keep an eye on this thread in case you decide you want to join the install. It may be worth the drive.

    JD, I may take you up on that offer if no one else jumps in. Besides you're only down the street from me. Then we'll hit up Taco Bell.

    Can someone measure before and after with the expos? I have 4 inch blocks now and want to know if the expos will give 4 inches of lift from stock.

    Sarah at all pro said i could get away without buying the extended brake line by bending some type of bracket havent looked into what bracket shes talking about yet but i bought the extended brakelines just to be on the safe side.

    hopefully if i get the last part i need this weekend i could have the before and after measurements for u. what i'll be running in the rear with the expos are 10" 5150's. hopefully i get what i need in the mail this weekend. fair warning my before measurement will prob be real low due to the fact that my rear leaf springs have a reverse arc and im still running my old trd shocks from when i bought the truck well see how it goes though.
