    Yesterday, I placed my lift order for the full OME setup with the standard rear AALs. Prior to that, I was going back and forth with the dealer about the suspension TSB. They were convinced that it did not apply to the TRD Off Road, because they thought the TSB was to install the OR suspension in SR5s. I actually provided them with a pic of the 4 leaf from TW (I love this site!). Well, they called today and they have ordered the 4 leaf.

    So, my question is, can I put the standard AAL in the TSB leaf pack? I would imagine that it will add an extra inch or so to the back end, which I don't mind. I'm more concerned about whether it will actually fit... Toytec isn't open yet, but hopefully I can get them to modify my order before it ships.

    If you swap them for the TSB AAL they have...does the amount of lift increase?

    TSB already lift up your truck about 1.5" right? Does the TSB AAL add to that? If not...and you can't change the order in time....I guess the next thing to do is sell the AAL that comes with the OME package.

    Lift price doesn't change based on AAL, just the height added by the AAL. Actually, Toytec Lifts has been great to work with. I just called and they are holding my order until I get confirmation (actually schedule the service) that they are performing the TSB.

    The TSB does change ride height by about an inch. The AAL for the non TSB is 1.75-2" whereas the TSB AAL is only 1.5 inches. I was really trying to figure out if there are any structural differences between the AALs that would prevent the standard AAL from going in a TSB leaf pack.

    from what i understand is they are pretty much the same aal with diff hights u can use either one they just provide the tsb one so that ur rear end isnt higher than ur front so u can level out

    I guess that's what I'm hoping... I don't mind a slight rake and I think the difference between the AALs is somewhere around 3/4". I ordered 885s and the top plate spacers for an access cab, so I think the new rake would be almost unnoticeable even with the standard AAL on TSB leafs.

    Just got confirmation from Neubs... the standard AAL will not fit the TSB leaf pack. AAL is too long, would need to be cut and drilled.

    However, it got me thinking: with the AAL, do I really need to get the TSB done? In my '87 Chevy 1-ton, I had AALs put in for load and the added height was more of a side benefit. However, it did stiffen up the ride. I'm thinking that with the standard AAL on my current 3-leaf springs, I may get additional load benefit without needing the TSB. Between the 885s and AAL, I don't want to stiffen up the ride any more than I have to.

    Can anyone comment on ride quality differences between standard and TSB'd AAL setups?

    I love the ride and look with my 2" AAL. I think the tsb and an aal would be too stiff for my liking.
