    hi TW gurus, i'm planning on lifting the rear of the truck 1.5 inches. what are the pros and cons of shackle lifts? i want to add at least 1.5 inches but don't want to have a harsher ride. does AAL give a distinct harsh ride than stock?

    shackle lift will wear out your leaf packs faster then a AAL. And the AAL didnt really make it that much stiffer. Get some descent shocks like the 5100, and you'll be set!
