    I'm currently looking at the various 3 leaf AALs out there.

    i've boiled it down to:

    Wheeler's

    All-pro

    Icon


    I would be very interested to hear opinions from people that have used any of the 3.

    Thanks!

    I have Icons. Never had wheelers or any other and so far I don't have any complaints. I'm sure each company is as good as the other. Good luck on your decision.

    not particularly. Helper airbags are going to go in for heavier loads or towing.

    I am most concerned with the spring rate on the rear leafs. I don't want to lose fillings when i go over bumps because i went with a super stiff single leaf AAL.

    My plan is to put in a 3 leaf AAL and run billy 5150s or 7100s.

    I have the Icon 3 leaf aal, no complaints here. I would think between all the 3 leaf aal's, they are all going to be pretty much the same performance wise.

    the wheelers is a bunch less expensive than the icon or all pro. Pretty much because it is $150 and includes ubolts.

    i dont do rocks or high speed offroad driving, so i really dont see the need to flip the ubolts.
