    Have you taken it off road with the set up? Was the ride quality noticeably better than the stock?

    I just run the wheelers 1.5 AAL. I also have sumo springs when I really load it down. My base extra load is a snugtop shell, bed mat and tool box, so probably 150-200 lbs. Takes quite a bit more than that to make it squat. Eibachs are on first clip up front so I have a little rake. I also have a SSO bumper and winch so the first clip only netted me about 1.5 inches, but that was all I was looking for

    AAL lift in I would bet. Same set up. When taken out you will lose lift.

    I just took it this weekend to some trails, it’s a beast. Better than stock of course. Can’t beat the price. Pull the trigger!

    This is probably more of a general install question but I have this system to install on my truck so I'll ask here: watching different install videos some people simply remove two bolts from the lower control arm allowing it to swing out of the way and remove/install the coil strut assembly from the bottom while other videos seem to go through a lengthier process of getting the upper control arm out of the way and leaving the lower control arms intact. What are the pros/cons of going one way over the other? Wasn't sure if it was an inability to raise the vehicle high enough to remove the assembly from the bottom. Hoping to tackle the install soon so any input is appreciated.

    Thinking of getting this kit myself, trying to do as much research as possible. can anybody kinda confirm below:

    My stock rake is 2", 90% on road driving with very minor dirt roads and trails the other 10% of time (NO, NOT SENDING IT, HAHA)

    Eibach Pro Lift kit on second notch should push front end up 2" from stock.
    Add either AAL or full leaf pack replacement in rear for 1.5" of desired lift over stock. (any pros/cons to full pack versus AAL minus cost? best full pack providing 1.5" lift over stock)
    UCA are not NEEDED at 2" but RECOMMENDED for ease of alignment, why not do them now while everything is off
    Extended brake lines are not needed at all (mainly asking for rear)

    Only a 2wd peasant so shouldn't have any issues like needle bearing, yay 2wd? Sorry for the long list of questions, just making sure I'm looking into the right parts. Currently running 265/75R16 so hopefully wont look too funny in rear, I want the rake of raising both front and back but front tire just looks too crowded at the moment.

    Follow this install video for the front. But obviously torque to spec.

    Doing both sides at the same time makes it way easier. You dont have to loosen the lower control arm. And are able to rotate the sway bar forward and out of the way.

    This is the middle notch front and a 2" wheelers aal in the rear. The front middle notch gives about 2.5-2.75" of lift. I think to keep the rake you need the 1.5-2" lift in the rear

    Any suggestions on where to purchase the kit? I was thinking wheelers with their 1.5” AAL.

    was looking at 6112/5160, but after reading this thread I do not see a lot of difference to justify the price bump.

    What're your motivators?

    Second notch is recommended if you’re adding front weight.

    If price isn’t a problem sure get after market UCAs and full leaf pack. Looks like you live in Tampa and for 90% pavement and for 2WD seems way overkill. Just my opinion
