    I had bad frowning with my leafs, I bought the Toytec AAL and I have great arch now. No sagging, very stiff like it should be.

    I have the Toytec aal and honestly they suck. They make the ride really stiff. I will be changing out the entire leaf pack soon.

    You get what you pay for really $80 bucks is a really cheap way to lift the rear.

    The ride should be stiff, your driving a truck. Ive never driven a truck that wasnt stiff in the rear, try towing a boat with a soft leaf pack and let me know how it goes.

    Although I guess some people dislike it, I love my leafs. Great ride, so sagging and theyre easy to install. If your going to order them there is a discount code in the vendor section. :cool:

    Be sure to buy a can of Pb Blaster and spray your shackle bolts, bolts on the front of the leaf and the center bolt under the bump stop every day or two leading up to the install. It will save you alot of trouble with rust when you go to loosen them up.

    ^Comes with them. You can see I still havent cut mine off yet so they are plenty long enough you can leave the stock overload in if you want and gain at least another 1/2" and still keep a high payload capacity. Mine lost a little without the leaf but I dont carry much anyway
