    Marco advised me of the same for my setup around 1 week ago - bump stops and brakeline bracket mod. DSM has seen alot of these, I'm confident in their recommendations.

    I ran the regular length ones for awhile and wheeled fine but it did limit down travel. Best thing to do is measure your compresion/extension without the shock and go from there. I got the 9.25" 5125s and added a spacer under my bump stop. Based on the #s a 2" aal will have you close to 16" compressed/25" extended (that's my 3 leaf aal with overload). There's no point in running the shorter one with the numbers of 14/22 unless its for light trails where articulation isn't an issue!

    The longer ones look good for a larger rear lift like allpro's standard/expedition pack........that's what I'll probably end up with. AAL will wear out over time and is a very temperary fix. Mine softened up considerably in a year after light to moderate use.

    Ya, wheelers 3 leaf! Had to add the overload back in and get softer bump stops as speed bumps will make it bottom out!

    the number should be on the sticker on the body of the shocks.

    ttt, any new info on this?

    I want to do Icon 3-leaf progressive AAL and leave in my overload spring on my stock 4-leaf pack. It should finish out at around 1.75" of rear lift.

    Which Bilsteins should I buy for the rear?
