procomp AAL questions

what are the differences of these two kits? i can't seem to notice aside from the 2.3 and 2,36 width.

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/EXP-13122/

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/EXP-13120/

also, what is the difference between the short style and long style? i'm guessing either ride or payload capability.

would these be the correct u-bolts? http://www.summitracing.com/search/M...eyword=u+bolts

i put in the selector that my block was 2". i forgot what the stock block height is and guessed. the options were 1.5", 2" and 3".
i'd rather not use a block regardless of how much i don't use it offroad. i've heard too many horror stories and would like to avoid it as much as possible.

if it's possible to do without and leave what is already on my truck, could i just order the 1.5" ones?

I have the long leaf procomp aal, it gave me like 2 inches of lift and it feels more bouncy in the rear

summit didn't seem to have those, where did you get them and how much?

could be the pic. you gotta link to the ruffstuff ones?

ok, i was at the ruffstuff site and came across u-bolts for a 31 spline 8.8. so my question is even though it's an 8.8 does the spline count matter? i'm pretty sure that mine isn't a 31 but instead a 28. even though i know it's a 8.8.

so spline count affects the axle diameter?

i'm also looking at the link and i'm guessing that the 5/8" is the thickness of the bolt, 3 1/4" is the diameter of the bend (or axle diameter) and 10" is the length from end to bend.
