    To keep your smooth factory ride why not buy a 1" or 2" block rather than leaves? It's cheaper, easier and quicker!

    good luck with the install, like Jimmiee said why not blocks or are you going for the extra payload

    everything should go smoothly atleast when i did mine it did. add a leaf is better then just adding a block itll give you more payload.

    TRUTH! I plan on getting a tuff country 2" lift kit as seen here http://www.suspensionconnection.com/...rado-lift.html for my truck... i like that factory "rake" as is said in the description... but i'd like some slightly bigger tires on there... Let me know how the install goes! can't wait to see the pics!

    i did consider just adding some blocks but ive been looking around and they arent much more expensive than the add-a-leafs so i figured why not go ahead and get those to help out with those times i got a heavy load.installation shouldnt be much harder..i say that now...

    Good Luck, installation isn't that bad. You'll be fine.
