Default Add-A-Leaf Lift Amount?

I was wondering how many inches of lift could I get from adding a "Add-A-Leaf's to my stock leaf springs? If so is it possible to get 2" of lift from Add-A-Leafs?

If you want a greater amount of lift, place the Add- a-leaf at the BOTTOM of the leaf stack instead of 2nd to the bottom.
You should be able to gain an extra 1/2 inch!

Unless you get a long aal it should be the lower leaf in the leaf pack. It will never go below the overload leaf which is the lower flat leaf. There are step by step instructions that come with the set of leafs.

I ran AALs, barely got 2" of lift out them. The easier route is shackles, just an FYI.

an aal helps with weak stock leafs. shackles lead to premature inversion on the leafs.

Default Re: Add-A-Leaf Lift Amount?

I ran a Full length aal and was very impressed with it, I did not acheive the 2" lift that it stated, rather returned to stock ride hieght and added a little bit more for loading it down. On my 01 I just added the 2nd and 3rd leafs into my leaf pack from another ranger. So I have 5 leafs + overload and it sits nice and I can really load her down.

I have the aal, they gave me about 1 1/2 inches. If you want two, get shackles as well but only use the first hole. so if you want later you can go higher still.
