Add a leaf & shackles

Hi, When you add the shackles & aal should you do the shackles first & after you do that, than add the springs ? Doing this does it through your pinion angle out of line? Thanks Tanker

when i threw on the AALs i did not need new u-bolts, but if you put anything else on there you will...i had to get some edge ones for traction bars...

EDIT: Just saw you have EDGE e-bolts...so umm...i dont think you will need new u-bolts...but not 100% sure

spring tech are the same thing as a Procomp spindle. it doesnt matter you can run any BS that normal aftermarket wheels have like 3.75, 4, 3.25, or 100% stock wheels and tires it will look bad but eh.... personally what tire size you looking at you can fit a 33x12.5x15 i would get some mickey tomp 15x10 it will look bad ***.

here is aftermarkets truck with spindle AAL shackels 33x12.5x15 BFG A/T and 15x10 wheels
