Jake, I have done an AAL on my truck also, and it will take a few hours tops. I can help out too.

The new leaf will make the rear end ride stiffer. It re-archs the stock leaf pack because of its stiffness. At least my truck was stiffer.

Anyone have any input on a 2 inch block in the rear instead? Wouldn't be easier to install and wouldn't ride rough. I know people hate blocks, but a 2 inch wouldn't be a big deal

I guess you could call it stacking blocks...but you put them on the same way as you would any truck that is lifted with blocks. Not that big of a deal

But 2.5 might be too much and I didn't see a 2 inch

I still have them. Just seeing if it would be an option.

I've never been a fan of stacked blocks personally, to each their own though.
