    Ok guys...
    I went down and the parts were ordered for my TSB

    My questions is should I wait a few weeks for my Lift until the TSB is done?

    I didn't want to lift it and then have the dealer say... Sorry TSB can't be done because the Lift Kit.

    anyone have the TSB done after the Revtek lift was installed?

    (I am doing the revtek kit with the block spacer since the TSB will be done and will have the AAL)

    thanks in advance....

    I waited damn near a month after I had my TSB done so the springs could settle a little. Every dealer is different in the way they handle modified vehicles, so I would either wait or call the dealer and ask what they think. And after the TSB, you may be like me and like the way your truck looks with just the front lifted.

    You should wait. ALso the TSB leafs do not have an AAL, they are a entire new leaf pack. :)

    But they go from 3 to 4 leafs correct? thats why i assumed it was an AAL.

    I will call the dealer and ask him if he wants me to wait or if he cares if my lift is done before the TSB... (I just sold my truck with the 3" Lift 1 1/2 spacer in the rear and wished the rear was just a little taller)... SO i think the TSB and then the 3" Kit with rear block will be just perfect!!

    Nope. Its a new spring pack entirely. Different spring rate also. If it was just an AAL, it would stress the top 2 springs in the pack. If the spring pack is worn out, or performing poorly, in many cases an AAL can make things worse in the long run. :)
