    I have two questions. maybe more..

    I would like to remove my toytec 1.5 AAL an just have the tsb 4 leaf pack. What hardware do i need to make this happen. I think i threw out the old center pins etc.

    second ? I have a double cab short bed with a camper shell on it. I have 884's an billies set at 0. will this truck be sitting level once i remove the 1.5 aal? Right now it is definitely ass high a little more than an inch.

    thanks

    Well by removing the AAL im guessing you are going to loose about 1.5 inches...
    also you can just cut the centering pin to the new height

    1 inch high in the back is pretty good. If you ever load your truck or haul a trailer you should be level. Taking that 1.5 inch AAL out will cause you to be nose high especially with a 200lb plus shell on it and 884's on the front. Even worse if you load the bed. Get some center hub to fender measurements and we'll probably be able to answer your question better based on where your truck is sitting now.

    Just out of curiousity, why do you want to remove the AAL?

    my goal was to have the truck sit level and not have to worry about ucas an the troubles of exceeding 3inches of a lift. (from where i measured) i have about a 2 inch difference ass end being the highest on my truck with 884s and tsb aal.

    This may or may not help, but when I installed my 884, I was nose high without anything in the back other than TSB. You have a camper so you will definitely be nose high without 1.5 AAL.
