    I searched but....
    I have the 2" AAL with stock rear shocks and the rear skips around over bumps like the axle is welded to the frame rails...
    Does anyone have recommendations for rear shocks to go with the 2" AAL?

    I saw that the rear 5100's say they are good for 0-1" lifts, anyone have them with the 2"AAL??? results???
    thanks.

    The cheap but decent way is a set of 5100's with some toytec shaft extenders. Some guys will say the extenders are a shitty/half-ass way to go, but its a cheap fix and i've run them for well over a year and had zero problems and get tons of flex. With this setup i've witnessed the shocks have more travel than the leaf springs are capable of on my truck. My $.02.

    Of course there are other shocks like longer 5125's with a top mount adapter that will fit, or other shocks like fox's, etc.

    I had no luck on their site. So maybe I will just give them a call. I already bought the shocks I want to install, just need the adapters.
