Skyjacker six inch leafs worked for me. They have the pinion angle already accounted for in the bottom leaf. I am not runing any blocks and just a stock fx4 shackle so i don't know if that will make a significant difference in the pinion angle. you could probably get a pair for about $400 at a 4wheelparts if you have them delivered to a store.

Could you also use a 64" long travel kit? or would that not give any lift.


HarryTasker: Where in PDX are you? do you have any pics of your SAS?
