    I'm looking to get an aal to fit my tsb leafs and these are the two I found to fit the tsb. I read on here that both are made by alcan so I assume they're the same. But are they? Which do u all reccommend?

    I've done some business with Wheelers, they're good folks, go there.

    I also got a couple of items from Toytec, also good folks, go there.

    Whichever is cheaper I guess.

    I heard that toytec's 2" is alcan. If the 1.5 tsb is, and wheelers is, then see which one is cheaper shipped to you.

    How much lift do you have on the front of the truck?
    I can supply you with either AAL.

    I'm installing 5100s at 2.5"

    I want about 1.5" in the rear and more importantly, aal's with anti friction pads to hopefully ease the squeaking

    They are within a few bucks of each other so it all depends on shipping. But I was wondering if there was a preferance between the two

    As far as the 1.5" ones go they are both pretty much the same. Ours does come with ani-friction pads, but I am sure the toytec does as well. Do you ever haul much weight in the bed of your truck?

    Ok. Then the single AAL kit will work best for you!
