    Ok cool, I was concerned about that but if it doesn't affect ride quality much then sweet... Definitely going this route, now I just need to find the best places to get the products and some one local who knows what they're doing to help me install( idk shit about installing these lol) definitely some one who has done it before successfully

    I am pretty sure in saying that your ride will be better with a replacement leaf pack but like I said, my setup works and rides great for me until I can upgrade...

    Agreed, but for now, I'm good with just throwing on the progressive AAL, especially If the ride will still be solid... Only reason I'm not upgrading everything is bc I just bought her a month ago an makin some pretty deep payments from my dealer, although I jewed em down quite a bit... In the nxt 6 months to a year, I should be ready to upgrade everything, coil overs most likely

    for stock wheels you need spacers, the susp doesnt make a difference.

    Spidertraxx are the best. allpro makes spacers as well.

    Depends on what wheel you run and Spidertrax are probably the best spacers out there....

    Also remember your spare tire won't fit on the front, I learned the hard way

    How would I go about that to avoid problems? Just take it out before starting install?

    hey man i kno its been a while for this thread but no sense in making a new one! im taking a trip to vegas in 2 months and want to have the lift on with the tires etc. holding off on shocks will save me for time being... i would be ok with the 1.5" AAL with stock shocks right? just clarifying before i start!
