    i have a 06 DC i had the TSB down and bought the 3inch front spacers to level it out with the newly adjusted rear end. BUT putting in both the big spacer and the small one to make the 3 inch lift it made my front end ride higher. I took the small one out and made it a 2.5 or so lift.... Can anyone tell me how hard it is to put the little one back in to make the 3 inch lift. I plan on maybe putting a inch block in the rear to level it out then any suggestions.....

    When you say "little one", is it the spacer on the TOP of the spring, or the one that goes IN the spring assembly? For the rear, Use a 1" AAL instead of a block.

    The spacer I have now in the front is on top of the spring inside the assembly. Does the Other one go on top of the assembly without haveing to compress the springs???

    AAL, ?? I was told with the TSB that I could not AAL to it, is that not true....

    Ok. The smaller ones go on top of the assembly. Remove the 3 bolts and the bottom shock bolt (while the truck is on jack stands). Then, place the spacer on the top of the spring assembly and re-install. You can use an AAL with the TSB springs. I have been running one for a while now. :)

    Is the AAL a shade tree mechanic job........ with just jackstands and a floor jack... I know it talks about using a large C clamp for the tension...... Wish it had pics of installation..

    Don't pay a mechanic, if you've ever repaired anything on a vehicle, you should be able to manage this project.
