    Anyone have any AALs laying around they took out because the got played out and no longer lift? I have reg cab with 3 leaf packs and would like to do AAL without it lifting any more than just the thickness of the leaf.

    Please refer to the "has lost their lift" in reference to AALs in my post. Yours are 2" new, had they sagged most of that 2" before you took them off? I have reg cab and want 4 leafs and no more lift than an oem 4 leaf pack would have which is about 3/4". I have 3 leaf pack now and do not want to lift the rr of the truck. Just want helper leaf or AALs that lift none to take care of axle wrap and be better cornering or towing or hauling than the weak ass 3 leafs are. I will not be going higher than .85 up front when adding 5100s. Right now have .5" lift up front and rr has 1 3/4" more gap than front. Don't want it higher up front and don't want lift the rear. I like how high it is now but want it to be more sturdy and ride better like the 5100s will make it do. Already had 2.5" on the old truck with 1.5 AAL on rr. Don't want to be that high this time. Don't want to need bigger more expensive tires and get less mpg either. Just a bit of leveling and better ride/load handling.

    With an unloaded bed, yes, they provide the 2" of lift as advertised. With a truck box full of tools and what not, or a camper shell, these would do what you're asking for. Other than that, you are probably going to find the greatest satisfaction out of some auto parts store helper springs. I was looking at advance auto recently,and they have some for about $45. There is a thread on this forum about axle wrap eliminated that uses just that. Any how, if you are interested, send me a pm. Good luck

    Yeah, aware of helpers, just seeing what people might have just laying around, considering the different options. Appreciate the link, advice and even the the clownery from the usual suspects.

    Got the shocks and read reviews for the helpers in the link above for 45.00 and am going to give them a try. Looks like those will lift a little depending on how much you tighten down the u-bolts so I can go .85 on the 5100s with the 1/4" tp spacers and get 1.35" up front. Don't want to go 1.75 up front because then it'll lead to needing bigger tires than the 265/70/16s I have to look right. The wheel gap is 2 1/4 more out back right now so with the front at 1.35", it'll leave about an inch of rake out back and I can just tighten up the helpers to get maybe another 1/2 or inch depending on how it sits.

    The helper springs won't give any lift at all. They go on the top of the springs,and to the rear. And only make a difference with a load.

    According to the reviews I read, more than one person said they added an inch or more by tightening them up more but I really don't care as I'm mostly looking for load handling and wheel hop resistance back there. I can live with the 1 inch of rake higher in back after lifting the front so either way, it should be OK. Still giving them a shot.
