    My leaf springs are not what they used to be. If I could afford it I would opt for the wheeler 5 pack. Money is pretty tight right now. If I went with a aal would it actually help? Thanks for the input.

    Wheeler's/Alcan 5-pack leaf springs, Bilstein 5100's front and rear, OME 881's, de-badged, Jungle Fender Flares, Herculined bed, HomerTaco grille, Anzo headlights, clear corners, CVT Mt. Bachelor RTT, custom bed rack & CBI sliders
    An AAL will get you some added height and reduce the sag but it is only a temporary fix for the weak leaf packs that our trucks are notorious for. And AAL's typically give you a harsher ride. You might also consider having them rearched at a local shop...that plus an AAL would be a more long term solution and still be budget friendly.

    If you can dig up the money for a new leaf pack, now would be the time...there is a group buy going on right now.

    Thanks for the advise mtgirl! I didn't low that they could be re-arched. I don't think this would last long either though. I'm aware of the group by, but I've just commited to another one. Thanks again.
