I did the AAL........but....of course, after doing it, I should have spent the extra $100 and replaced the springs.
The AAL's are fine and ride great....but I always regret doin things half A$$$$$$$$$$$$ed. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" />

aal's are a temporary fix to a perm problem & i have found them to be weak in the woods. it is worth the extra cash to put in full spring packs & you get a full lift that way. also, i may be wrong, but i didnt have any driveline or driveshaft or brake issues with a 3" lift. when i did anything above that i had to shim & change locations of things like steering components & brake lines. anything above 3" & you will have to replace your pitman arm too. thats not hard though.
