    Sorry to make a thread for such a simple Question but I have searched and I have read different opinions. I even talked with a few Vendors and got two different answers.
    Ok the Truck is a 07 4 door Prerunner Sport. I ordered 5100's all way around and a 2" AAL.
    My Question is : Do I need longer U-bolts for my 2" AAL? My truck only has 3 leafs as of now. My U-bolts are showing half inch of thread now with the 3 leafs I have.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I didn't with my AAL but It might be a good idea to do it hell it's only like $30 bucks for longer ones.

    You might not need longer "U" bolts, but you should consider getting new ones. Technically, they are not a re useable part.

    i have rear TSB with 4 leafs pack and also want to add a 1.5 AAL, now that every thing is clear that I don't need a new U bolt, i can just use the stock ubolt. How's the ride with 5 leaf pack, I wonder if there many people have this set up?, Thanks guys for being very helpful in this forum:)
