    I have a 2010 DCLB, currently i have a Toytec spacer lift on the truck with a 1.5" block in the rear(no TSB or any issues yet). While the truck looks great and is perfectly leveled after a year i am tired of the shocks bottoming out and the stiff ride, i am finally able to afford a "real" suspension kit. I was thinking about OME complete set up but its a bit steep at a little over $1K. Also my concern was once you get the whole spring pack installed it seems like you almost get that factory rake back. If i am not mistaken it said that you achieve 2.75" of lift in the rear and 2" in the front. With the factory rake of 1.5" difference wouldn't that make the rear end over 2" taller? Maybe I am missing something here? Anyways I wanted to get some opinions what you guys are running and what you would recommend. btw I am also ordering new wheels and tires at the same time, I am planning on running 275/65/18 which is 32" so clearance is not a big issue. Honestly i don't even want full 3" of lift. Any comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanx ...

    How much lift do you get out of Wheelers AAL and is it more cost effective?

    Thanx for that, looks like its more cost effective. Whats your opinion on using the lift enhancer plates for the front? Wheelers website said you only get about 1.75" with the coils alone. (885's)

    I see you are running dakars in the rear and only coils in the front, does your truck have a rake and how do you like the ride with the dakar's?

    Wheeler's 3 Leaf progressive AAL is rated for 1.5" of lift after you remove the stock OL leaf. You will see closer to 2" if you leave the stock OL leaf in due to it's width alone. :thumbsup:

    BTW, is there a huge difference between the 90000/N140s for the front and 60091/N182 for the rear? Sounds like the new series 900/600 would have a stiffer ride?

    Well OZ after you enlightened me I think i have decided to go with 885's, the new sport shocks from OME and most likely wheelers 3 leaf AAL. The price is just a little less than getting the dakars and i dont want a super high ass end. Just for entertainment, I have heard of people going with dakars and removing the 3rd leaf and even one of the OL leafs. Not sure if that's a good idea. Anyways thanks for the info.

    Removing the 3rd leaf from the Daks is fine , it is actually addressed in the ARB ( OME ) literature , but personally if I was going to remove leafs from the Dakar pack I would just get the Wheelers 3 leaf AAL instead

    Good luck :thumbsup:

    One more question before final decision, since i have a long bed wheelers offers the 3 leaf HD AAL, so you think I should go HD with N182's or regular 3 leaf AAL with 60091? (for best ride quality)
