    after being overwhelmed with countless hours searching and deciding on my lift, i recently jumped at purchasing a set of front 5100's and had planned to go with them at .85, along with the eibachs and an AAL. in realizing how much cheaper it will be down the road (and to install everything at once) i am looking at getting UCA's and a progressive leaf pack (instead of the aal). i am a non TSB 4x4 and was just wondering what the best leaf pack for the price is. also, i was planning on going with a 2'' AAL with the .85/eibachs...should i be looking for a 2'' leaf pack as well? i heard they settle more than the AAL's.

    thanks

    ugh, brake lines too...hope installation isn't going to run me way up. i would go to 3'', but i already have the billies. plus im still running 245/75/16s up front for the time being...i don't want them looking any smaller than theyre going to with 2.5". does anyone make a 2" pack? id just go with the AAL, but i hear the packs are much better and help to eliminate vibes

    i know im a first gen but i got the allpro expos on my truck and with 2 dirtbikes loaded it didnt even budge and it still rode nice...but yes fair warning it will give you about 4-5" of lift even though it says 3"....and from what i know when i asked all pro the people who makes the allpro expos are alcan sometimes deaver will even have alcan make there springs or vise versa...if u want to see a lift on a truck with small tires look at my photo gallery lolz i know i need bigger tires but i think im just going to stick with 31's for now bc of the gas prices...as for install shouldnt be to hard took me about 6 hr though lolz see if u can get a helping hand
