    So I'm pretty sure my rear leafs are shot (no camber to them at all), and I need advice of what to do. In the future I would like to do a 3" lift and all the usual, but don't have money for that now. I live in the middle of B.F. Egypt, and there aren't many good resources around here to look for junker leafs. Would an AAL (1.5") help for a while until I can afford Dakars or All-Pro leafs? I just want to bring the back up to stock height. Suggestions are welcomed and needed.
    Here's some pics:

    Just want something quick and semi-cheap until I can afford lift. Would a 1.5 AAL raise the back too high?

    Nice! Thanks! Did you use a 1.5" or 2" AAL on that? So would you say it pretty much brought it back up to stock height?

    Im not sure what stock height is. They were sacked when I bought it. But I would say its close. Those are the 1.5" 3-leaf

    I got quite a lift from mine, it's been about three months and their still sitting where they were after they settled. My only complaint is the payload is nothing, I can sit on the tailgate and it sags about 3 inches. My leafs were at negative arch before the AAL, so it's worth it for 50 bucks until I get my leaf pack.
