    I have the fat bobs kit on right now and I was wondering are there any other options to lift the rear? The aal that I have on keeps it level until I have any sort of load in the back. Would it be possible to put in a second aal? Or would I run into brake line issues ect. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hey I know it's been awhile since the last response but does anybody know if I could indeed add another leaf? I plan on upgrading the leaf pack in the future but funds are a little limited right now. The rear currently has a 1.5 aal so I would probably want to add a 1 inch aal

    ICON offers a 3-leaf AAL. Like $200.

    Shemicals ran them on his truck. I've got a set sitting under my toolbox at work.

    3 leaf aal is still only 1.5 lift. and as far as adding a second aal you probably can but ride will be terrible. new leaf pack is your best bet. why do you want more than 1.5" or 2"?

    He's sagging with load on the fat bobs AALs. I don't think he's looking for more lift, just better AALs that won't sag so bad with a load.

    OP, read the reviews of the ICON AAL around TW, a lot of 6 lugs run them to.

    Yeah it's a good amount of lift just sags under any load.

    Quaker, thanks for the idea I think that's the route I'm going to go.

    Damn, now I'm not sure what to do. Fat bobs recommended trying to add a long aal on top of what I have and they said it should give it a little more firmness when carrying load and it'll only give it a half inch or so. I think I might just save for a new leaf pack though. Thanks for input.

    Most aftermarket packs arent for weight unless you get all pro expos but supposedly those ride bad empty
