    There are countless threads on here regarding leaf packs and aal's regarding lift.....This is not one of those.
    I've done a lot of research on here and decided to go with a 2" aal, that I bought from a member here ( can't wait to get it !! )

    Here's the question/problem...Took a look at what I have now and it seems a leaf is missing ( see attached photos ).

    Is what I'm seeing a simple non-tsb or did the previous owner aal and then remove it?

    Will the aal that I just bought be able to be installed or do I need to correct the spring pack first?

    The truck is an 06 dbl pre-runner that I bought used has 100k on odo. I know it wouldn't hurt to replace the whole pack, but $$ is an issue.

    I can't tell from those photos- but the 3rd leaf is a very short thicker overload type leaf...so it doesn't extend up that far.
    I'm sure you'll be able to get the AAL into it.

    You should have a short spring and two long ones if its a non-TSB leaf pack. The pics look normal to me. Thats what I had before AAL install.

    Pretty sure I see 2 leafs and then end of an overload leaf in that first pic, so you are normal.

    Ok, thanks guys !! It just looked a little odd to me. Not to mention, on further inspection I noticed a lot of trimming in the wheelwells up front and what appears to be some cheap pep boy type shocks on it. I'm pretty sure there was a kit on there that was removed when he traded it in.

    Anyway...thanks again for the input:).
