    I just installed some sway away adjustable coilovers(2.0) in the front and an add a leaf for the rear with some matching(silver and Red) rear nitrogen shocks. I love the look but man is it a stiff ride :( If I were to switch out the rear add a leaf with a block, would that help the overall ride? And if so, what size block would I go with? Thanks for the info...

    Not sure, it was just a smaller curved leaf that I put at the bottom of the leaf pack?

    Not sure what brand the aal is but it came with the kit that I bought from a local guy who went with a fabtech after having this one for a year. When I was talking about the blocks, I was thinking that if I removed the aal and put blocks in then it would retain the original ride in the rear but still have the lift. Thats my thoughts? but maybe I'm wrong????
