no its made by skyjacker. its not an aal, its an entire 4" lift leaf spring assembly, but summit says it only fits up to a 98, im trying to find out what is the differance a 98 and a 01. ryanrebel125 has a set on his truck.

it will lift you 2" over what you have now instead get the springs and a 1" block that will raise you the 3" you need

idk why your spending the $ on it, you could just do AAL and a 2" shackel that raises you about 3" and the total would be like $55
