I know i really contemplated it but then again i still need to buy AAL so I can live with out the danger of stacking them. I had about 1400lbs of concrete that i cut out of a basement today DAMN i could have used the extra payload capacity lol

Good, the leafs settled a little bit since ive been driving around on them, they settled about .5 inch. When i get the money for AAL im going to use the 1 inch hole instead of the 2 inch hole. I think by using the 2 inch hole and AAL its gonna put the rear up to hi and look goofy

haha u should see ben10s truck it is UP there! thats the issue i have since a front spindle lift would be too much money so doing a t bar crank is my only choice (besides body lift) and aal so if the aal happens to look weird too high im screwed lol

I would love to put my truck up in the air quite abit but i need my truck to still be functional with it being my work truck. ladder racks, tool boxes they all need to be somewhat easy to get to, when i get my new rims and tires in april It should give me alittle bit more hight

well blocks sound like a good idea but i need more jacks to do the job.. and hazardousranger AAL are a big pain.. you need a grinder to grind out the center bolt that holds the pack together and might need longer u bolts and nuts and its just alot of time consuming stuff.. shackles sound alot easier to install plus dont create a stiffer ride in the back. which by the way makes it harder to keep the rear wheel planted

by the way i purchased a set of fabtech aal for like 70 bucks but that is higher than the 50 dollar procomps that you can get.

----------

plus im going to have to wait for the shackles.. we had a major storm rip through here and it is putting a strain on me right now.. since my job in the military is emergency management im trying to get some things back on line down in the south ie. sending needed resources and supplies to surounding bases that were affected.. plus on top of that i have the core of engineers screaming at me to help them with flooding up here with the lakes flooding and rivers.. what a mess. but im going to at least order them for now and sit on them. maybe if things are nice i can install my new extended Bilstein HD shocks in the front after i cranked my torsion bars..
