AAL, shackles and 32's

I've just ordered spindles. I've got a ways to go on my BFG AT's, so I'm keeping my 32's. My question is, will an AAL and shackles bee too much of a lift in the rear? I may put my front suspesion back to factory and go from there to soften up the front. I don't want the rear to be too high since I'm not running 33's. I know many of you are doing the aal and shackles w/33's and don't know if it will be to much for my 32's. Thanks.

You could just wait until you get your 33's. Then order and install the whole lift.

Thanks Zach. I'm not lowering the front too much, just want to soften it up and not have the front all out of wack. What I'll do is adjust it some but not too much. I don't want that prerunner look with the **** end sagging. To respond about waitng for 33's, I'm getting the lift now so I won't have problems w/front suspension and wear it out anymore. The t-bars have been cranked for some time, but I haven't put many miles on my truck since then. There isn't any popping yet and my front end doesn't want to go wherever it wants. I take my truck offroad, but I don't beat it to death because I don't want to break anything as it is right now. Plus my leaf springs tend to sag when I put weight on them.

I ordered mine today from sporttrucksuspension.com which turned out to be suspension max. I didn't get them from ebay. I got mine for $299.95 straight to my door by ordering online from them. If I ordered them over the phone they were $289.95 plus $45 - $50 shipping. Go figure!

I would not put procomp AAL on if they were free.

Pic of mine. Was not on there for a full year. The u-bolts were the only thing holding it together. Zachbeard's were broke too.
