    Bilstein 5100's at 2.5", Grey wire, Wheeler's 1.5 aal,
    I have the billies all around that I purchased from Wheeler's and I've been thinking about getting their 3 leaf aal instead of a block, glad you're happy with the leafs and thanks for posting, helped me make up my mind.

    Man, I forgot how awesome that day way. The transition was literally night and day for me.

    Be sure to keep your overload springs. I took mine off per the instructions, originally... but ended up placing them back on. They don't stiffen the ride until you overload the bed, but I wanted the additional ride height in the rear.

    Let me know how it turns out!

    The wheelers 3 leaf and rear 5100's are a must!! Holy crap what a difference I have only driven 5 miles on the road so far but it is soooooooooooo much better feeling. The new AAL and 5100's soak up all the bumps. They ride nice and I wish that I would have done it earlier. Thanks again for the TW members input.

    I had a set of the Wheelers 3 leaf put on a couple of weeks ago and removed my 1'' block. It was a good decision. The ride is better and it does handle the bumps even better than my front end that is (in my opinion) overly stiff. I recommend it highly.
