    So is it possible to "stack" suspension lifts period??

    I have 2inch AALs with no tsb in...i guess it finally settled in?? And now its actually about an inch lower than the front, yes i measured, flat ground etc...so i was wondering if i could jus throw like a 1inch block to level it, or i dont care if the rear is a little higher. I dont see why it cant be done but all thoughts and opinions please

    Thanks

    yeah you can do that, blocks arent the best for performance but it will work to just lift it another inch safely. Make sure to get new longer U bolts

    No problem. Idk how much lift you'll actually get but I know a couple people who have done it.

    I wouldn't stack AAL's. I can't think of any really mechanical reason why not, but there's nothing keeping the bottom AALs aligned with the leaf pack.

    You can flip the overload but it only works if the arch of the leaf springs is less than the arch of the overload when you flip it. The problem with flipping the overload is it now puts the overload as part of the active leaf pack. The main leaf pack is thin leafs and flex well, the overload is 1/2" thick and is made specifically to not flex except under very heavy loads. In short, it will ride like a dump truck.

    If you can find a donor leaf pack, you can cut it up and make a leaf pack with more leafs. You could also get a new leaf pack but that's obviously expensive but would solve your problems.
