    well my rear end now sit an 1 1/2" lower than the front if measured from the top of the tire to the bottom edge of my fender flares. i was wondering who make an 1.5" shackle lift kit that i can buy.

    Or is this just because the front fender flares sit higher on the body of the truck?

    I have a 1.5'' Toyotech shackle kit. No problem here. Why not just get an AAL tho?

    i already have an aal in the rear. since i lifted with the ome 883's the front of the truck appears to sit slightly higher. i measure the height to the bottom of the fender flares from the ground and got 38.25" exactly all the way around. then i measured from the top of the wheel to the bottom of the fender flares on all four side and came up with the following:
    front: both at 9.75" from top of tire to bottom of flare
    rear: both at 8.25" from top of tire to bottom of flare

    you can see in my sig it looks like the truck is lower in the rear. . .
    unless im going insane :goingcrazy::goingcrazy::goingcrazy:
