    I'm looking at swapping the block out for either a AAL or the Wheeler's 3-Leaf Progressive AAL. Can anyone comment on the Wheeler's 3-leaf pack? I'm curious how it compares to stock for stiffness and ride. I'll likely be coupling them with some 5100s.

    How difficult is the install?

    Thanks.

    It is better than stock. After I flexed them out and broke them in they really felt good. It is a truck and adding more leafs to the rear is going to make it firmer. The 3 leaf AAL is firm but not as harsh as the stock springs. A friend did my install so I cannot comment on the difficulty of install.

    I also live in Littleton, I could give you a ride in my truck but it is a Regular cab. I am not sure if that effects the ride or not.

    well, after speaking with the guys at Wheelers, I just ordered them up. Better than stock... sign me up!

    I appreciate the free ride offer, though.

    Hopefully the install goes well. STOKED!

    as long as you have a jack tall enough to get the springs away from the axle, the install should be pretty easy.

    that was the only part i struggled with.

    and you'll def. like the ride. i have the same set up in the rear for now

    They are good at helping us take that extra step to an empty wallet :D. I just bought a portable compressor from them after ordering my springs and struts.
