    So Sunday I decided to install 700 lbs springs on my TRD Bilsteins thinking it wouldn't be too bad since I'm rocking a full steel bumper and 80 lbs Odyssey battery. I did it without a spring compressor (not too fun).

    Whelp I was wrong. The BRO lean is strong. The combo of having Decked and hardshell on a AAL doesn't help in back either. My leafs are flat.


    I had to adjust my headlights for the time being (pointing way up). I'm actually going to upgrade my leaf pack soon though.

    It’s not noticeable based on the photo you posted. A true Carolina Squat is recognizable!

    Mines leaning the wrong way. I can’t decide to leave it or pull a leaf and redo the limit straps. I have the hat, glasses, Monster sticker etc already.

    How did you do it without a spring compressor?

    HA, that's how my truck looked before I got around to installing the AAL in the back.

    I have a first gen, which came factory with the Carolina squat. At least that’s what it seems. I’ve also got a camper shell, and a pack rat tool box full of stuff. I installed the air lift helper springs. I love them! Fully adjustable to whatever your load may be, even without a load. Best part is, it still rides smooth unloaded unlike heavier suspension springs. Since I already had on board air for my lockers, install was pretty simple.

    I also think your truck looks great the way it is. Are you sure your tapered driveway isn’t skewing your ride height assessment?

    Had the same and recently did the 5+1 leaf pack from blackout14. Gained an inch and some while loaded still. Kinda squeeky though.
