    OK, I need some opinions on what to do with my rear suspension. I've got the adj. height 'stein 5100's up (set at 2.5" of lift) front and now the front is sitting higher than the rear. I'm exactly sure what the difference is but i'll check it later. Thanks for any help.

    I did a full leaf pak in the rear of mine and I'm very happy with them - OME - Dakar springs

    They have an overload leaf and flex very well offroad...

    I'm trying to find a picture that shows this off a little.

    I've heard those are good, but I'm not looking to spend that much on it (340.00 on wheeler's offroad). If they're worth it I may save up for 'em. I was thinking of something more like AAL's or longer shackles

    AALs or shackles will work fine in leveling your truck out.

    Is the rear sagging or is it just lower because you just lifted the front?

    The front sits higher because its lifted, I'm not sure if it's saggy out back.:D
