    Hey everyone,
    Front: Billies @ 2.5, stock coils
    Rear: 4 leaf pack and 2 inch revtek block, ranchos I believe, cant tell too rusted. White with red boot.

    I recently purchased a canopy, approx weight 200-250 lbs and noticed that I am not sitting level, bro lean going on. I want to remove the block and add a 2" aal, but am worried that I will still be in the same position. Any suggestions? New shocks, new leaf pack?

    a 2" AAL from toytec should liven your rear up! Don't forget the longer u-bolts

    AALs are a far better lift solution than blocks, but trading 2" blocks for 2" AALs won't change your height by any appreciable amount. Shocks won't provide any kind of rear lift either.

    New leafs are probably your best bet. I'm sure there are a number of options available, but OME Dakars should do the trick.

    x2^^


    New leaf packs are the way to roll but if your only at 2.5" up front a 2" AAL "should put you level with the topper....you'll probably have a little rear rake without the topper on.

    Thanks everyone for the responses. I was hoping that an aal would be enough to level me out, but I may have to look in to some dakars. Wife wont be too happy about how much Im going to spend, but it needs to be done. Once again thanks for the info you guys.

    Ya dude maybe just try that 2" AAL 1st. It should make you level since your at 2.5 up front :cool:

    worse case scenario, pull the 2" AAL, sell it to a guy on here and buy your Dakars. But i'm about positive that the 2" AAL will work :cool:
