    I just finnished installing my AAL 1.5" kit. I added a bit more than 1.5" (more like 2-3") and now my truck looks like ass (but rides %100 better!!). Im looking to order some Blistine adjustable shocks for the front to level the truck but am worried about my coil overs. Would they be ok with a 1-2" lift? If I need new coil overs, Ill just have to wait and get the entire package.

    Also, what are the benefits of a new control arm? Thanks!

    If you are just getting the bilsteins set at 2.5 which is what i have you don't need new coil overs or UCA's , the benefit of the UCA's is they will guarantee a perfect alignment but with my stock UCA's I rarely notice any highway wandering. Hope this helps

    the benefits of aftermarket UCAs are more articulation when wheelin,more clearance for wider tires and help to gain a better alignment. but they are not needed,stock ucas will work to some extent

    give your AAL a week or two to settle,you may have 2-3'' now but it should settle to 1.5''

    ^ Yes, Im counting on it. Hopefully when I start hauling, they will settle a bit. Hopefully enough as I dont have the $$$ (or time) for a new front suspension (or even just shocks).
