    No. The 4 leaf is the same as the TSB 4 leaf in USA.

    The 4 leaf spring pack is different than a 3 leaf with an AAL. Generally, the AAL is a different spring rate than the leaves in a spring pack.

    \you should only need to rais e the front 1.75". Best way to determine this is to find out how high the rear is, then how high the front is. What ever the difference is is what you would have to lift the front.

    5100's will be the best.
