    I'm really close to making the decision to raise the rear of my truck up to the full 3"... or somewhere close. The thing is, I cant beat how this rides.... its amazing IMO, so soft in the back that makes blazing ugly dirt roads feel like I'm riding in a caddy, metaphorically speaking of course. The front is still fairly stiff due to preload, but it all evens out nicely. I don't want a stiff rear suspension because my rear will always start sliding on washboarded surfaces with a stiffer setup like the basic AAL i had ages ago.

    Thing is though, I think my current setup might have been made for a TSB and I didn't know it when I bought it. Its the Icon progressive setup. I left the overload leaf in. They didn't bow much when I installed them at first, and now they're pretty much flat. I'm open to suggestions.... should I lift it up to the full 3", should I just look at a different leaf pack???

    Heres a decent straight on pic from when I detailed it a couple months ago. I think I might be a bit lower in the rear since I took this pic :shrug: I know I gotta be squattin like a mo-fo bro when I mash the gas... LoL
