    Better rear shocks are a good idea- but not required.

    And yes- Wait for the AAL to get aligned- unless you have a lifetime alignment or really bad driving feel or tire wear...

    Thanks, got LR UCAs sittin in the garage waitin to be installed to get my caster back under control. Still have 6 months left on my 1 yr alignment so that'll be free. Camber & toe are good as far as tire wear but the caster still causing a bit of twitchiness & wandering. Can't wait to be rid of that.

    I don't think it matter since the rear is non-adjustable... I strongly recommend a set of UCA's I thought I'd be fine... but after installing my UCAs the alignment is beautiful and the truck drive a lot better. I know there is a lot of talk about not needing them with only 2.5 lift, but damn did the UCAs make a huge difference with front alignment.

    NTB was 119 or 109 for 1 yr 4 wheel alignment but IIRC, Firestone has a lifetime one for 149 that has been posted about a coupla times.
