    Is the longer AAL needed/worth the extra few $$x

    It's not needed. Im sure someone can chime in on the benefit of the longer aal although.

    I think long aal give a better ride and more load but left lift and are pron to sag faster and the short aal gives more lift and a firmer ride but doesn’t add any weight capability and tend to take longer to sag, dont quote me on this though, I would do your research before buying

    Did anyone have an issue with the roller bearing seating on the Fabtech 3" spindle incorrectly?

    My mechanic is saying from my understanding that the bearing is not seating all the way back on the spindle?

    I found this on FB, they have kits that say off-road use only so I emailed them and they said have to state that for insurance purposes. Their kits are for bagged n lowered trucks. The strut bar posted is stock length so it should fit fine.
