    1. Park on a level location.
    2. Measure the center height of the rear fender.
    3. Put a jack under the rear part of the frame and raise the truck until it is where you want it.
    4. Measure the change in height.
    5. That is your block thickness.

    1. AALs don't give an exact lift height. It is an estimate for your specific truck.
    2. AALs give a stiffer rear ride and more capacity for carrying stuff.
    3. AALs tend to squeak when dirty or even other unknown reasons.
    4. If you plan to get your truck airborne while off roading, don't use blocks
