    No not me or the wife, but it looks like the a$$ of my 06' is sitting lower than the front. Not sure if this is the TSB thing because that sounded like rough ride. Mine is not rough just looks like its lower by an inch or so. Does this sound like a TSB thing and if so how do I know if its been completed on my truck?

    Did you buy your truck new or used? Since its an 06', I doubt the TSB was done to it. You can always check by looking at the rear AAL's. If you have only 3, then the TSB hasnt been done to it, if it has 4, then yes it has but in your situation and the way you are explaining it, I highly doubt the rear TSB was done to it.:cool:

    Copied this from your gallery. Can't tell from this pic due to camera angle and driveway slope. Get a tape measure out and measure from ground to fender.

    Hey guys thanks for the help. I did go out and check the leafs and it only had three leafs so I called the dealership and they informed me after I gave them my VIN that it had been performed. They couldn't tell me when but said that it was not an open TSB and that I only had one open TSB the accelerator pedal thing...but mine doesn't stick. WTF??

    True I could add a leaf and in fact I'm about to with the lift kit that is on its way. But I fear that after I lift the front and then add the leaf the truck will be sitting lower in the back (compared to the front) but now lifted. Does that make sense??

    So what should I do if after the lift if the a$$ of my truck is sitting lower than the front after my lift?

    Depends on the lift you are plan on doing.You really need to park on level ground and do a true measurement on front vs. rear. Best bet is do a rear AAL and get front adjustable Billies and set it to level it out after AAL install.
