    Right now I have the Toytec Ulk and it's cranked up to da max because I have 2" add a leafs and I wanted it to sit level. Due to it being cranked up it rides rough. Should I get 1.5" aal and lower the front coilovers or get a new setup?

    I dont know anything about this lift but from what I can remeber reading about, it is pretty rough. Why not crank it down abit to see if it smooths out before spending more money, hopefully someone with the lift chimes in, free bump, good luck.

    Mine rode really rough too but I cranked them down a bit and the height of my truck barely changed while the ride improved a lot. Try cranking them down a bit and/or get a smaller add a leaf before spending more money I'd say.

    ultimate lift kit ( toytec ) ome dakar leaf pack , w/ extended length billies, LR uca's, Pro comp 7089s, KM2's 285 70 17, neoprene seat covers, weather techs, CBI sliders w/kickout, URD ss, cab mount chop, VHT night shade tint>tails,3rd B-light. Debadged. Grillecraft grille, rear diff breather mod. CBI Moab front bumper, warn M8000 winch, HID kragens 7", Hella's micro fogs. retrofit headlights HIDS, LED solutions maps/license! 886 back up light mod,
    I have the same set up, I have the dakars in the rear and had to crank up mine to get as level as I could to match the rear. When I added my cbi moab front plate bumper and winch, it settled and I had to crank them up again and it is really stiff now. I haven't too hard but when I do it's stiff but I expected that> 3" suspension lift = rough ride no matter what, dropping it down to 2.5" will soften it a bit but IMO will it really make a huge enough difference, probably not. Sounds like you have it figured out by getting the 1.5" AAL and crank the fronts down. Toytecs coil overs aren't too bad of a coil over so why spend the money on something you already have unless your willing to LT and spend some serious $ for the soft ride you seem to be looking for.
