    Shit you basically have a 3/4 ton after that, bet it rides like a old grain truck too after those were put on.

    I see 10 here.

    [​IMG]

    But 7 here.

    And 8 here.

    Not sure what's going on. The 7 or 8 variation makes sense if you replace the overload with the 5-leaf pack, since the OEM springs may be 3 or 4 leaf. That doesn't explain the 10 leaf top photo.

    The page says they add 5 to the two stock top leafs. The 10 you see would be each side paired up. The 7 would make sense. Don't know about the 8 :notsure:


    Sounds an awful lot like the OMD mod.

    Thanks for clearing up the 10.

    5-leaf + 2 OEM leaves (OR pack) = 7 total
    5-leaf + 3 OEM leaves (regular pack) = 8 total

    So you're going to add your sagging leaf springs to them ?

    does turning tires to black wall out count? How bout added snug top rebel.
    Looks interesting. I know my rear springs suck with any weight in the back, I've hit the bumpstops way more than I should. Another option is always good.

    I'd think without a slide in camper or towing something heavy these would be stiff and not comfortable for everyday.

    For reference, the standard OME Dakar rear spring has 7 leaves.

    You can do it, but if the springs are already worn out, you won't get the full benefit of the AAL. IMO, it's better to replace it with a full, new leaf pack, or possibly air bags.

    Multiple leaves provide a progressively stiffer ride. A single heavy leaf can provide a much harsher ride than a properly designed multileaf pack.
    Read the article again, there is good info in it.


    From the article:
    Above: This picture shows all the pieces of the kit. It also highlights the three different progressive stages in the leaves. As the vehicle sags, more and more leaves are picked up to increase the stiffness.

    Note, the 10 leaves are shipped bolted together. Also see the 4 U bolts in the pic? Thats the whole kit.

    I called the manufacture and they are only for 4 wheel drive. Nothing for the 2 wheel. Said they will put it on their list.

    I called them back and this time they checked with their engineer and said they will fit a 2 wheel drive TRD OR. List price is $665.95.
