    1.5" AAL. Single or 3 Leaf, depending on how you use your truck.

    Same thing you do in the front, but use more lube.

    have you had the suspension TSB done? if not go to the dealer and tell them the rear end rides very rough and bottoms out bad and they will replace your rear leaf pack with a new better one, with 4 total leafs instead of only 3

    Will the 3 leaf give a better ride off-road?
