    Any problems installing the toytech AAL to your four pack TSB Leafs. Will I need the longer U-Bolts. I looked under my truck and there is not that much thread showing past the nut.

    Need some assurance and advice wether I need to puchase these..

    Thanks.

    I saw center pin included, not U Bolts. Saw them on ToyTech site for like 39.99...

    Kind of confused. I read somewhere to never reuse the U Bolts:confused:

    I have reused u-bolts in the past without incidence. Normally I leave about a 1/4" thread below the nut, just to be on the safe side.

    I just got the OME 3" lift kit with the AAL for the TSB springs and the kit came with the center pins only. NO U-bolts.

    If you had the TSB done, and the U bolts are not 1/2" or more thread showing, the dealer re used the old U bolts. They tried this shit with me, and I demanded the new U bolts. I had to go back and get them. As for the AAL install, its easy, just make sure the ground your on is level, and the front wheels are chocked.

    I have done this (AAL w/ TSB install) twice and it is not difficult at all. Yes, you have to reuse the U-Bolts but like others have said if you have had the TSB done they should have installed longer ones for you. Mine are a good 1/2" past the bolt. The center bolts are included with the AAL.

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    I had a shop install my AAL from ToyTec and didn't need new longer Ubolts.

    Yeah, I'll measure again tomorrow, and double check with JHODGE. As far as dealer error, I doubt it, the bolts are brand spankin new...

    Just dont want to spend $40 on something I dont need, and then again, dont want to be empty handed when it comes to install.

    Thanks to all for the input though.
