    I have a ProComp 3" with an AAL. It has some miles on it and with the cap on, the rear end sags a little bit. What is the best way to pick up another inch or so in the back end? New AAL? Shackle flip? Replacement leaf pack?

    A new leaf pack would be the best way to go. It sounds like you current leaf pack is worn out and needs replaced and a shackle or aal would just be a band-aid fix.

    Replacement leaf pack would be the best option, new AAL would also fix the problem for a while, shackle flip kits would also do the trick for a while until your current leaf pack settles even more. I'd look in a Dakar leaf pack.

    I was thinking what all of you are saying. Looks like a part of the income tax return is already spent. So what do we have for options? All-Pro, Dakar, Deaver...?

    I know you get what you pay for, but the Alcan's seem kind of pricey. How much lift could would I get out of the All-Pro Expo's with a Leer cap?

    I need everything in one package. Load capacity, flex and lift. Would airbags limit suspension travel?

    I have done some research on the air bags, they are not for me. With one 4wheeler in the bed, and one or 2 on a trailer, and the rough road in to our riding area, I need the suspension travel.
