    1. If I go AAL, can I expect it to help with payload sag?
    2. How much will it increase the height of the back of my truck?
    3. How much would I need to increase to the front to make it level?

    I’m researching lifts and want to go a little bigger but also tow and 95% on road. I’m thinking 5100’s and an aal should do the trick. I am tossing up coil over’s but just think 5100’s alone. Oh 5100’s and aal should keep it close to stock level and not kill fuel mileage.

    Would an AAL add any height to the back of my truck?

    So if I went with a 2" AAL, how much lift would I need in the front to level the truck? Also, would 285's fit (remember no wheeling)?

    Get the TSB done and buy billstien 5100's for the front and get them installed at 1.75" and you'll be pretty lvl... That is how i am set up and i pull small trailers often with plans for a 20' travel trailer soon.

    Just my opinion...

    Good luck!

    What are the pros and cons of setting the shocks at 2.5?

    Pros: added ride height for slightly larger tires. 5100 series offer better valving than stock so ride quality will definitely be improved.

    Cons: you will probably want to get more than just the rear tsb done to be level or you will have that baja'd look. Must adjust headlights down a bit. No other adverse affects that I know of!

    Another noob here. I would be looking for an estetic 1"-2" lift max. With such a small lift, would I shorten the life of any front suspension parts? What would be the better way to go. Thanks....
