    Ok so i have had a few comments on my truck that the rear looks to be sagging a bit with the lift. Well i just figured it was wear as i bought the truck used from a dealer. Come to find out that whoever did the lift install didnt install the F****N AAL!!! here is a pic:

    [​IMG]

    On the Fabtech site it says that the Performance kit with the coilovers comes with the blocks and the AAL and both need to be installed. Im thinking that a shop looked at it and said oh its either one or the other. Anybody have any ideas of what to do?

    Unless you have the TSB springs, you DO have an AAL in that spring pack

    If you are within the 3 year/36,000 mile warranty, Yes. They should

    I see a Block and a Fabtech aal in that pic. The 3rd leaf down is a fab tech aal. Notice how it is cut straight across (not good). That is the AAL.

    You either already have the TSB pack or you have an AAL installed (4 leafs total). It looks like you have the AAL installed because you can see a different arch on the 3rd leaf down. Good luck getting the TSB springs, maybe your dealer isn't as lame as mine was.

    Extended like for a total of 72k, or it's called an "extended 36k warranty"? If it's the latter you're probably hosed. Time for an upgrade.

    extended 36k. Ya im going with there is an AAL installed and no TSB. I figure ill go in there and see what happens. The worst they can say is no. And come to think of it Novato Toyota owes me so maybe i should just call them.

    Haha, dont be too worried about it. 95%+ is red clay residue from where we go wheeling.
